STRIP – The Dallas Webcomics Expo is ramping up for Year 4! Attendance and support has been growing exponentially and we are expecting even greater things for 2012′s incarnation. We promise you that you will NOT WANT TO MISS this year’s show.
Mark your calendars NOW: SATURDAY, 04 AUGUST 2012.
We’ve made some changes and kept some oldies. Remember the live art show? Back. The costume contest? Better. The panels? More! The awesome vendors?! AWESOMER!!
Every convention has its panels and ours is no different. Strap yourself in and get prepared to have some knowledge dropped on you by some of the industry’s best and brightest! We’ll discuss everything from coming up with ideas, to making them a reality… The trials of technology and the technology of blowing stuff up. Seriously. You should probably bring a notepad. VIEW THE PANEL SCHEDULE HERE.
Tim Taylor from The Hunger Games will be attending STRIP – The Dallas Webcomics Expo this year! He will be available from 12pm – 5pm. During this time you can get photos and autographs for a small charge. Mr. Taylor will also be here for a Q&A session! You definitely won’t want to miss this!
STRIP – The Dallas Webcomics Expo will return to the Southfork Hotel in Plano, TX on Saturday, April 4th 2012. Doors will open at 10:00 am and close at 5:00pm. Fear not, good citizen, because the fun won’t stop there! We have revamped our LIVE ART SHOW & CHARITY ART AUCTION.
Those of you who attended last year went home with some pretty amazing artwork! The art created at the LIVE ART SHOW was sold at our CHARITY ART AUCTION. The proceeds of that auction benefited The Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. We have a whole new experience planned for you guys, and admission is FREE with your paid admission to the Convention. If you can’t make the Expo, but want to be a part of the Live Art Show & Charity Art Auction, that’s cool. A donation is appreciated, but not required to enter.
If you can’t attend either, you can still participate by submitting artwork for the Charity Art Auction. Click here for details.
The always amazing Taffeta Darling, Webcomics’ favourite cosplayer, will be returning as the Official Mascot of STRIP – The Dallas Webcomics Expo! Stop by for a photo, chat, or an autograph!
Come dressed as your favourite comic character! We’ll be having another Cosplay Costume Contest!
That’s all for now. Click on the social media icons of your preference at the top of the screen to keep updated on the details of the show as they roll out. Share the news! Invite your friends! Buy your tickets online for a discount!
Lastly, we’d be nowhere without our volunteers. If you’d like to get in for free, volunteer for a 2-hour shift!
See you in August!
