cons are coming

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!

Find the ID STUDIOS crew at tables A85-A86 at this year's Baltimore Con!

also, we’ve updated our 2013 CON SCHEDULE! (located on the right side of this blog, in case you’ve missed it.) there are a couple of shows that were originally on the list that we needed to cancel due to scheduling conflicts – namely Detroit Fanfare and North Carolina Comic Con which we were attending with BOOM! Studios. Boom will still be there but theFranchize and Peng-Peng will not. we also added some new ones that weren’t on the list previously, mostly because we were just waiting for confirmation. which we just got! so we’re guests at Baltimore Comic Con in a couple of weeks, we’re definitely going to Anime USA in Washington, DC in about a month as well as New York Comic Con in October!

next comic con we’re attending – WV POP CULTURE CON! that’s already next week on August 24-25! theFranchize & Peng-Peng will be there as guests again! we had so much fun meeting fans last year and we’re lookin forward to good times again! if you’re anywhere near Morgantown, WV – stop on by!!  ~peng
