Anthony in the (Canadian) Nation’s Capital this weekend!

After finally having a weekend off, I become a weekend warrior again this upcoming one as I attend the Ottawa Comic-Con from Fri, May 10 – 12th.  This is our first time attending the event, run by the amazing organizers of the Montreal Comic-Con, so I’m excited to see what it’s like.

I will be at Table #A600 the entire weekend, which is plum in the middle of some of the top artists today – beside Pia Guerra (co-creator of my favourite series of all-time, Y The Last Man) and superstar artist Yanick Paquette (DC’s Swamp Thing relaunch). You can find a floor plan of the show at this link.

I am also conducting a workshop “HOW TO CREATE AND MARKET YOUR OWN COMICS” on Saturday at 2pm in Meeting Room B.  I have put on this workshop at almost a dozen conventions so if you’re at the show and would like to find out how to get your comic off the ground come by and pick up some tricks of the trade.  The workshop description is:

“Kill Shakespeare co-creator and Shuster Award nominee Anthony Del Col will take you through the process of building the comic from inspirationthrough to the perspiration of marketing your baby. Anthony will demonstrate how a comic is put together from the earliest stages of writing (thebeat sheet) throughthe art process (penciling, inking, colouring) to the final production elements (lettering). He will then discuss the creative entrepreneurship side of the Kill Shakespeare journey. From business plans, to raising money, courting publishers to expanding their idea into other mediums, Anthony will give you the skills needed to make your creative idea into a creative business.”
