Seattle, WA – January 26, 2010 – The Emerald City ComiCon (ECCC) is once again bringing back its popular MONSTERS & DAMES art book for 2010. It features almost fifty brand new pieces of art by some of the top illustrators in comics, as well as an amazing cover by Jo Chen (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8).

“We sold out of our entire run of the 2009 Monsters & Dames art book,” said ECCC organizer Jim Demonakos. “Thanks to that, and overwhelming feedback from our attendees, we’ve created another fantastic collection of monsters, dames, lady monsters and everything in between!”

This full-color, 9″x12″, 48-page hardcover is limited to only 850 individually numbered copies and features contributions from artists such as Tim Sale, Mike Allred, Darick Robertson, Whilce Portacio, Eric Basaldua, Aaron Lopresti, Philip Tan, Michael Golden, Carlos D’Anda, Brian Churilla, Gabriel Hardman, Jamie McKelvie, Jim Rugg, Timothy Green, Steve Rolston, Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, Mark Texeira and dozens more!

Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book benefits the Seattle Children’s Hospital, a premier child health care and pediatric center and recognized as one of the leading US hospitals for children.

The Eighth Annual Emerald City ComiCon will be taking place March 13-14, 2010 at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in beautiful downtown Seattle, WA.

We’ve extended registration for the next semester of my comic course at VanArts. We’ll now be starting class next Monday, January 18th. It’s looking to be a small class, which means more one-on-one time with the teacher! Don’t miss this opportunity!

Are you or someone you know interested in learning the ins and outs of creating comics? Do you want to develop your visual storytelling abilities with one-on-one guidance from an Eisner Award winning artist (that’s me)?

It’s only $595 for 36 hours of quality instruction (3 hours every Monday night)!

Please pass this on to any friends in the Vancouver area who might be interested.
