WA – ECCC Live Art Party

Jim Mahfood, Ben Templesmith, Camilla D’Errico, Scott Campbell, David Mack, Ray Fawkes, Chris Haley, Rebecca Woods, Pete Woods, & Lar DeSouza appear on March 4th.

Press Release:

Comic con season kicks off this again this weekend in Seattle, and you can find Ron and Conor at the Emerald City Comicon on March 4-6.

iFanboy has hit Emerald City for the last three years and we’ve had so much fun that we wouldn’t miss it this year!  The talent lineup for this show is absurdly good, since so much of the comic community calls the Pacific Northwest home.  As always, if you’re on the convention floor, walk up, say hi, get to know us!

We’re excited, and we hope you’re excited too!  We’ll be shooting lots of video in both places for those of you stuck in the rest of the world, because we can’t leave you out!

And if you don’t spot us on the floor, come check out the Emerald City Comicon Live Art Event!

When: Friday, March 4th. 9:30pm to 2:00am

Where: Noc Noc, 1516 2nd Avenue. Seattle, WA 98101

What: iFanboy.com, Graphic.ly, and Comic Evolution present the hottest event at this year’s Emerald City ComicCon: Live Art at the Noc Noc!

Join a bunch of superstar comic book artists as they paint incredible, original artwork for your amusement as you drink and dance to the fantastic guest DJs. Observe the creation of art in a laid back atmosphere that you would not necessarily get at a crowded convention.

Artists include:

Jim Mahfood, Ben Templesmith, Camilla D’Errico, Scott Campbell, David Mack, Ray Fawkes, Chris Haley, Rebecca Woods, Pete Woods, & Lar DeSouza

Also featuring local Seattle talent:

Stephan Maich, Autumn Baker, Redd Walitzki, & Carl Faulkner

More artists will be announced as the event draws closer.

Dance your cute little behind off to the spinning of DJ Svengali Lad and DJ [Brandon] Jerwa!

Admission is FREE at the door if you say you are there for the live art.

The Noc Noc is a mere couple of blocks from the convention center, so you can continue your geeky excursions well into the night with this event!

All art created will be donated to Emerald City Comicon’s Saturday Night art auction, and all proceeds go the Seattle Children’s Hospital. Come help support art for a good cause, and watch artists do what they do best in a fantastic environment.

RSVP on Facebook! (Not mandatory but it’s nice to know who’s coming.)

 CC4CC Comic Creators for Captain Cure

We know who Captain Cure is.

Captain Cure is Ty Wakefield: a proud resident of Lewiston, Idaho, father of three, husband to one, and a friend to all.  In 2007 Ty was diagnosed with osteo-sarcoma (bone cancer).  While dealing with chemotherapy and bone replacement surgeries, Captain Cure was born!  Ty formed Alternate Reality Comics and began producing and distributing Captain Cure comics throughout the Pacific Northwest with all of the proceeds going to children dealing with similar afflictions.  The comic served an additional purpose in that it made the stigma of cancer an easy to understand concept for younger readers.

Ty’s road has been a tough one over the last couple of years.  He continues to promote his comics and raise money for charity in between extensive chemical and radiation treatments.  While the prognosis is not positive he continues to keep a smile for everyone.  While his charitable efforts have been helping others, his family now has sizeable expenses associated with his treatments which could be a heavy burden on his family.  We at Comic Evolution and CC4CC want to help reduce the burden to the family and ensure an enduring legacy for Ty and his family. 

On August 15th we will be hosting an entourage of comic industry leaders for a night to be remembered.  Starting at Noon we will have a book signing/Q&A with the artists in attendance.  To add to that we will have live music, a huge raffle, and art exclusive to the show on display for sale.   The real treat begins at 6pm, when we will have a price per head “Night with the Stars” at a yet to be determined location., where fans of the industry can just hang out with their avorite artists and writers. 

If you would like to participate in the event, either by attending or donating, please contact us at the number below.  Any and all contributions will go towards the Wakefield family in the form of a trust.  This way we can continue to assist the family with future events. 

*IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST OR WRITER AND WOULD LIKE TO BE ADDED TO THE LIST IN ATTENDANCE AUGUST 15TH, PLEASE GIVE CHUCK A CALL AT 253-770-6464*
