The conference, that started in a local garage in the 70's as a place to trade Comic Books , has evolved into a world-wide phenomenon, complete with red carpet premiers showcasing the latest movies, books and games of the genre.This year the focus was on “Captain America” with all the hype and drama to go with it.Located right by, Artist Alley, we were busy hanging out with all the awesome people who stopped by our booth to showcase their talents and try out some our FABULOUS Prismacolor products. Each passerby could create an artist trading card which we then mounted on the backboards of our booth. These boards were covered with art every day of the tradeshow.Spidey leaving his MARK!!!

We even had famous super hero, Spiderman, stop by to leave his mark for us to enjoy!

Shelley Minnis also had a full house as she gave a one hour presentation to approximately 300 people on “Prismacolor Tips and Techniques” as it pertained to Manga art. Participants received lots of Prismacolor samples to try and several lucky folks won really SUPER door prizes. The room was filled with excitement and lots of creative energy. 

 Many of the artists who stopped by the Prismacolor booth asked, “what will happen to my art after the show?”  The team collected a portion of the artwork collected and brought it back to the Chicagolandoffice and there is now a “mini art gallery” of artwork and pictures from this year’s conference right outside the Prismacolor conference room. 

The boards from the conference turned mini gallery!
