C2E2 2012 Journal: My First Con

Earlier this year I decided to apply for a press pass to C2E2. I didn’t expect to get one, after all back then my blog had only been up for a little while. To my surprise, I was approved, and so five days ago I flew to Chicago for my first Con ever. That’s right, I’ve never been to one before, but fortunately all of that changed this year. Whatever concerns I had were quickly washed away and in short it was amazing. I’ve come back with much reading material, which I will be writing about in the days to come, many pictures, which will likewise be posted in short order, and many other impressions and opinions. For instance, who knew Archaia Entertainment was so awesome? I didn’t, but in my mind they were the clear winner of the Con. Yep, take that DC and Marvel, more on that after the jump. Read More

The Fantastic Art of Renae De Liz

Odds are you’ve heard of Renae De Liz because of Womanthology, of which she is the Project Manager, and to which she is also contributing a story. Recently, she illustrated IDW’s graphic novel adaptation of The Last Unicorn, as well as Sonic the Hedgehog #198 and the Rogue Angel 5-issue mini-series.

Unfortunately, I have not become familiar with her artwork until recently. Sure, I picked up her name in conjunction with Womanthology, but her artistic endeavors remained a mystery to me. I’m sure there’s a meaningful comment to be made here about the necessity of an anthology of all women creators, but I digress.

Suffice to say, that I have recently made the trip to her website, blog, and deviantART profile, and have come bearing awesome art. Take a look below at some of my favorites, and make sure to visit the source for more good stuff. Read More
