WonderCon is right around the corner, and all signs are pointing to it being an amazing show. Peep the itinerary:
Artists’ Alley Booth # AA-095 will be homebase, where I’ll be splitting a table with my partner-in-rhyme Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca. We’ll be hanging out, doing up some live art and debuting the first issue of RHYME TRAVELERS (which, if I may say so, came out bigger and deffer than I could’ve ever imagined!)
Along with all the standard classics, I’ll also have a few copies of DEATH TRIP #1, kicking off a sci-fi/dark comedy graphic novel that’s been living in my head for a couple years now.
As if dropping 2 new comics wasn’t enough, I’ll also be on a panel! I don’t always talk on convention panels, but when I do, COT DAMMY. Check this out:
“Hip-Hop And Comics: Cultures Combining” panel presentation at WonderCon Anaheim, March 30th, 7pm.
Depth Of Field Magazine brings together renowned comic creators and Hip-Hop luminaries to discuss ties between the two forms, upcoming projects, and shared inspirations
On Saturday, March 30th, from 7:00-8:00pm, Depth Of Field Magazine is proud to present Hip-Hop And Comics: Cultures Combining, a panel discussion at Southern California’s premier entertainment gathering, WonderCon Anaheim. Comic books and Hip-Hop grew from modest origins to achieve global impact, and in the process, they have crossed over in innumerable ways – this panel will showcase new and upcoming projects from comic creators and Hip-Hop legends, shed light on the ways Hip-Hop and comics have influenced and inspired each other, and give a historical perspective on the combinations of two cultures through discussion with musical innovators, artistic legends, and cutting-edge creators. This program follows Depth Of Field’s standing-room-only Hip-Hop/Comics panel at last year’s New York Comic Con, which received widespread acclaim from attendees, panelists, and press.
Patrick Reed (editor of Depth Of Field Magazine) will moderate, and the panelists comprise many of the most influential creators in their respective fields, including:
-Dan The Automator (Producer/composer/remixer: Pillowfight, Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Dr. Octagon, Gorillaz, Lovage)
-Chali 2na (MC/rapper: Jurassic 5)
-Kutmasta Kurt (DJ/producer/remixer: Kool Keith, Masters Of Reality, Dilated Peoples, Beastie Boys)
-James Reitano (Cartoonist/designer/illustrator/animator: Madvillainy, Nineteen Eighty-Five, Santa Cruz Skateboards, Wu-Tang Clan)
-Toni Isabella (General manager: Bulk Recordings, Delton 3030, Pillowfight)
-Kenny Keil (Cartoonist/artist: Rhyme Travelers, Ferrari Boyz, Mad Magazine)
The panel runs one hour, and will take place in room 210A of the Anaheim Convention Center. Wonder Con Anaheim 2013 takes place from March 29-31; further information can be found here.
Do you want more?!!!??! Then go see my homies at The Devastator (Booth #910) where they’ll be rolling out their 7th issue! It’s about Spies and I have a little something in there.
And I think that covers it for now… See you there!
