Conventions & Events

We exhibit at conventions and festivals large and small throughout the year. We've set-up an 8-foot table display at Massive Black all the way to 500-sq-ft mini-stores at both San Diego Comic-Con and CTNX!

We are even invited by studios and schools to create a pop-up shop on their premises.

You never know where we will show up!

The National Cartoonists Society is delighted to announce that it has chosen the city of Huntington Beach, California, to host the inaugural NCSFest, a celebration of comics and cartoon art from all over the world. Based on the comic art festivals that are hugely popular in Europe, the festival will be held over the weekend of May 17-19, 2019.

Hundreds of the world’s most celebrated creators are expected to attend the three-day event, participating in seminars, exhibitions, workshops, panel discussions and signing sessions, the vast majority of which will be free to the public. Downtown Huntington Beach will be the setting, with all events staged beachside, on the iconic pier, at the city’s Arts Center and library and in local hotels and businesses, all within easy walking distance.


San Diego Comic-Con - July 17-21, 2019 - San Diego, CA

Our 500-square-foot pop-up shop in the center of the Illustrators and Fantasy Illustrators sections and Artist's Alley is the number one stop for hundreds of artists because they know we have "the best selection of art books at the entire convention."  You can find us at Booth 5012.

LIGHTBOX EXPO - September 6-8, 2019 - Pasadena, CA

After years of holding workshops around the world, Bobby Chiu and the crew at Schoolism have teamed up with the creator of Emerald City Comic Con, Jim Demonakos, to bring to life an event that truly represented the art community - LightBox Expo!

LBX was conceived as a way to bring together the best artists in animation, illustration, live action and gaming industries under one roof for the ultimate celebration of art. A place where we can come together once a year to hang out, share our art with the public, meet other artists, further our skills and educate those coming up in our respective industries.

2019 will be the 11th year for DreamWorks' annual in-house arts festival held on the DreamWorks campus.
