The geek world needs better representation in media, but aren’t you supposed to write what you know? Truth is, the whole “write what you know” thing is a load of bull honkey. A writer who can’t appreciate the perspectives of others is no kind of writer at all. Writers from all backgrounds and experiences join to talk about research, listening, soliciting criticism, and how to make sure you’re writing well when you’re outside the comfort zone of your own perspective. Room 1A14

Scott Campbell signs at The Strand on Saturday February 11, 2012 at 3pm!

Press Release:

Bring the kids to this fun pre-Valentine’s Day event—a reading and zombie-drawing craft hour with Scott Campbell! Mortimer is looking for love. And he’s looking everywhere! He’s worked out at the gym (if only his arm wouldn’t keep falling off). He’s tried ballroom dancing lessons (but the ladies found him to be a bit stiff). He’s even been on stalemate.com. How’s a guy supposed to find a ghoul? When it seems all hope has died, could the girl of Mortimer’s dreams be just one horrifying shriek away?

Scott Campbell is an art director and illustrator who has developed video games such as Psychonauts and created comics such as Igloo Head and Tree Head.

This event is open to children aged 3 and up. There will be a $5 fee per child for craft supplies. The event will be located in the Children’s Department on the 2nd floor. Scott Campbell will be signing copies of Zombie in Love after the reading.

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!

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

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.
