Splash Page Comic Art will be set up with artists Charlie Adlard, Stefano Gaudiano, Michael Lark as well as writers Greg Rucka and Ken Kristensen at the Big Wow Comic Fest in San Jose, CA on May 17th and 18th.
Charlie Adlard, artist of the Walking Dead, will be taking a very limited number of convention sketches at Big Wow. Both Saturday and Sunday we will pass out raffle tickets to people wanting to commission a $300 sketch from Charlie, and we will choose a handful each day randomly. Payment will be requested and those selected may wait for Charlie to draw their chosen character or zombie for them.
These are 1 character 11 x 14″ pieces on bristol board or blank sketch cover comics (you must provide your own comic).
Stefano Gaudiano will be accepting 11 x 17″ convention commissions at the show for $150. We will take a first come first serve list each day at opening.

Big Wow Original Art Auction Details:
I will be running the blind and live original art auction on Saturday night, May 17th. The blind auction will run throughout the day in the art gallery in the back of the hall, and will wrap up at 5:30PM Interested parties must sign up for a bidder/paddle number and then can begin placing blind bids on the art they are interested in.
Art that does not receive three bids will sell for the highest offer at 5:30 PM, and ones that do get at least three bids will be placed in the live auction that begins at 6:30 PM in convention hall room B. Writer Ken Kristensen will be helping emcee the auction so if you are a Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth fan, this will be a fun chance to hang out with Ken and hopefully buy some art! Attached is Michael Lark’s Frankenstein piece that he’ll be submitting into the auction. It is a giant 19 x 24 inches. Bidding on this should be reason enough to fly in for the show! There will be a cash bar in the room, and hopefully a number artists that submitted their works to the auction in attendance. Check out scans of some of the pieces in the auction on the Big Wow website
