last night, Bryan FLASH Turner was on Graffiti Alley Radio. the interview was about hip hop and how it has influenced him and his art form. CLICK THE LINK BELOW and have a listen. then, be sure to check out more on facebook.com/graffitialleyradio.
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
this weekend is Awesome Con DC already and we’re all busy getting ready for DC’s first comic con! we’re so excited to bring you all some brand new mini artbooks and prints! we will also be participating in a couple of panels at the show so we hope to see some awesome faces there.
- ID STUDIOS PANEL – SATURDAY 4/20 @NOON – room 102A – Flash and theFranchize will be talking about how to work as a cohesive studio and the advantages of having a group of talented individuals to work with. A studio that draws together grows together.
- HIP-HOP & COMICS PANEL – SATURDAY 4/20 @5pm – Peng-Peng and theFranchize will be participating in this panel along with other talented artists to explore what connects the two communities. This panel is done by Depth of Field magazine and has been at other comic cons. For more info on the panel itself, visit DepthofFieldMagazine.com.
just to whet your appetites, here are the covers of each of our mini artbooks that we will have at the show this weekend! (with the exception of Domo’s since he won’t be there. but he will be at C2E2!) we’ll see u at AWESOME CON!!! ~peng
