IDCREW LOADINGSNACKS
ID CREW and Loading Snacks Crew!

hey guys! well we’ve managed to survive the first half of comic con season with our 3 back to back to back conventions behind us. we went from Virginia Beach to Orlando to Washington DC and now we’re home! this awesome selfie is with the cool guys of the podcast/youtube Loading Snacks! it’s always a pleasure to see them, especially at our home show of Awesome Con. we’re still gathering our pictures from each of these cons but on top of all of that, we’re thinking ahead!!!

1st kickstarter announcement

we’re going to be launching a studio kickstarter finally with some of our stories that we’ve had floating in our brains since we started this studio like 10 years ago! phew!! we’ve been bustin our collective behinds breaking into the comics industry and recently the animation industry, all from an area where neither of those things are commonly found. and now we’re finally able to revisit our creator-owned ideas & stories with all the knowledge we’ve learned since we started this ride. the kickstarter is going to an anthology of a few short stories that will later be turned into a bigger story. more info will come as we get closer to launching it in JULY. keep an eye on our ID FACEBOOK PAGEfacebook.com/IdentityComicsStudio  for more current info on that!

the ID Studios crew is gearing up to head out to Indianapolis, IN for the first ever Awesome Con Indianapolis! we’ve had absolutely nothing but amazing experiences with Awesome Con here in DC so when we were invited out to Indy, it was pretty much a no-brainer. we’re going to have a huge spot in the Exhibitor area right before you hit the Artist Alley so folks should have no problem finding us. still, here’s a map of the show so u can make a bee line to see us.

since we’re flying in, each of us will only have a limited amount of prints and books so be sure to come by early. we’ll also have brand-spankin-new prints that we’re very excited to reveal! and of course, we will be doing sketches at the show. but get there early to make sure you get yours.

Come and see us at Awesome Con Indianapolis – TABLES 225/324/326!

Awesome Con DC recap

well, what can we say? Awesome Con DC was pretty, well, awesome! we had a blast and couldn’t get enough of the love that we were shown by our fellow Washingtonians. DC has been craving for a comic con and they finally got one! for it’s 1st time out, the show was incredible. they had guests like Ernie Hudson (who doesn’t love that guy!?), Phil LaMarr, and Billy West (among others). the show seemed small at first but the attendees didn’t seem to mind because they came out in droves both days! we saw so many cosplayers and it just seemed like a fun vibe all around. Ben Penrod, the con coordinator/promoter, did a heck of a job with the show and we can only hope that he’ll be willing to have us at all of his shows here on out.

our ID Studios panel went amazingly and we met some amazing new fans. the “Hip-Hop & Comics” panel was quite serious and we learned a lot about how others see the bridge between the 2 communities (which seemed pretty seamless and inevitable). and Flash won the DOODLE! SCRIBBLE! DRAW! battle (a kids panel we weren’t originally scheduled to do but we apparently sent the best gladiator into the arena). our local fans were hungry for our art and pretty much cleaned us out of most of our stock. what more can we ask for!

because of how insanely busy we were, we really didn’t have time to take many pictures so here are the ones we did get. enjoy!  ~peng
