Awesome Con is this weekend already – April 18-20, 2014! our business cards have been ordered, our prints are ready to rock, and we’re wrapping up some projects before heading to the show on Friday! since this show is in our hometown of Washington, DC, it’s gonna be a huge blast. and who knows, maybe one of our studiomates may have a new addition to the family before the weekend is out. 😉 everyone say CONGRATULATIONS to Flash – Mr. About-to-have-4-kids!
if you’re in the area, come on by Tables 439/538 and say SUP! to Peng-Peng, theFranchize, and Flash! we’ll have prints, books, and original art to sell. we’ll have “Adventure Time” and “Samurai Jack” books that we’ve worked on, “Loki:Ragnarok and Roll” books, and even “Fanboys Vs Zombies” trades at the table. we’ve all done different badge designs for this show as well so we’re very excited to see everyone walking around with our art around their necks. Peng-Peng will also have an Awesome Con Exclusive Cover for My Little Pony:Friends Forever #1 so make sure u get a copy and have her sign it! see you all there!
we’ve finally managed to get our pictures together from Megacon last weekend. we had an amazing time, especially for the first time being back after so many years. thanks to everyone that came by our tables and picked up our books and prints! we were even able to squeeze in some Disney and Universal fun after the con. we were in Orlando anyways so may as well. here are some pics from our time there. to see all of our pictures, head on over to ID Studios’ Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.278955285597332.1073741842.113793732113489&type=1&l=8de849410b and while you’re there, click LIKE and follow us!
as promised, we have the list of those that have donated so far to our #SketchesForHaiyan project. we’re calling it the List of Heroes – those that answered the call to help thousands in need with any that they can give. thank you all so much for donating so far. we’re still taking donations for sketches this entire week so if you haven’t done so yet, please consider donating. donations will go directly to the Philippine Red Cross. (info on this project can be found here – https://identitycomics.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/sketchesforhaiyan/)
we’re considering extending through next week since half this week is Thanksgiving. plenty of time to donate if you’re still thinking about it. i know that news of Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation has died down on our tvs, as with most events that happened longer than a week ago. but it doesn’t mean that situations in the Philippines are fixed by any means. they have a long long way to rebuild and they can use all the help they can get. we encourage you to please consider donating directly to the Philippine Red Cross if you aren’t interested in getting a sketch. the sketch is just our way of saying thank you.
we’re gearing up to head out to the big apple for east coast’s largest comic con, NEW YORK COMIC CON! be sure to stop at our tables in artist alley – TABLES P3-P4 and snag some cool ID Studios art. this is the last con of the year that all 4 members of the studio will be there – Peng-Peng, theFranchize, Flash, and Domo. we’ll have prints, books, comics and original pages/art for sale. and of course, we’ll be doing convention commissions. if you plan on getting a commission, be sure to come by early and put your name on the list. this con is so big that our lists get pretty full pretty quickly each day.
we’ve even participated in NYCC’s charity auction to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Peng donated the La Luna piece inspired by one of Pixar’s animated shorts. this is mixed media with watercolor, colored pencils, copic markers, and ink. theFranchize donated the original pinup art of his Batman pinup as well as the latest Superman that he drew, along with a copy of the print. the auction is being held on Saturday night, Oct. 12th. for more info on the auction, check out NYCC’s website
we couldn’t be more excited if we tried. see you all there! ~peng
we just returned from Horseheads, NY for HERO BOT CON this past weekend. this coming weekend we’ll be headed out to PITTSBURGH COMIC CON! so many cons, so little time to update blogs. here are pics of the commissions drawn at this weekend’s convention. through an unforeseen turn of events, Flash wasn’t able to make it to Hero Bot Con so it was just Peng-Peng and theFranchize holdin’ it down. the con organizers were so great to us and we couldn’t be more grateful for the fun weekend.
if you’re in the Pittsburgh area this weekend, stop on by the PITTSBURGH COMIC CON‘s Artist Alley and say HEY to the crew! Flash, Peng-Peng, and theFranchize are all scheduled to be there this weekend and we’re excited to make the trip back to the show. ~peng
next stop on our comic con tour is HERO BOT CON in Horseheads, NY. it’s a one day show on Sept 21, 2013 and they’re bringing Flash, Peng-Peng, and theFranchize out there as guests! this will be our first time at this show and we can’t be more excited to meet brand new faces. there’s rumors that we will have a panel at this show as well so if you’re going to be there, be sure to check out the panel.
in the meantime, check out our pics from this past weekend at Anime USA in Washington, DC! it was our first time setting up at this show and our experience with the artist alley staff was nothing short of fantastic. good group of folks! we had some fun Adventure Time commission requests and saw some pretty great cosplayers.
ALSO, are you on Facebook?! SO ARE WE! keep current on the goings-on of the group and head over to facebook.com/IdentityComicsStudio! make sure you LIKE US!!
the cons are coming! they’re pretty much here! this weekend starts the last onslaught of comic cons of the year. it’s going to be fast, maybe even a little furious. i’d like to promise that i’ll keep this blog updated each week with con pics but i don’t want to disappoint. there’s only so many hours in a day unfortunately.
still, we start this weekend off with BALTIMORE COMIC CON! this is our hometown con that we’ve been attending practically every year since our little studio has formed and this year is no different. it’s this Saturday – Sunday Sept. 7-8. if you’re in the area, come on out and say HI to us in the Artist Alley! all four members [Flash, theFranchize, Peng-Peng, and Domo] will be there at tables A85-A86! we always have a blast at this show and we’re looking forward to meeting new people as well as seeing familiar faces. we’ll have NEW prints, more artbooks, and drawing commissions all weekend long. and while ur there, be sure to wish theFranchize luck and keep ur fingers & toes crossed that he wins his Harvey nomination on Saturday!
we also have our con pics from the past WV POP CULTURE CON 2 weekends ago up on our Facebook page. it was just Peng-Peng and theFranchize holding down the fort at that show but it was definitely still a fun trip. HUGE thanks to the coordinator, Jon, for having us there again this year as well as a big congratulations on his show growing! head on over to our Identity Comics Studio FB page to see the pictures!
