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-square-foot mini-stores at both San Diego Comic-Con and Lightbox!

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

You never know where we will show up!

We exhibit at these conventions and shows:


Los Angeles Vintage Paperback Collectors Show & Sale - March-April 2024 - Glendale, CA

Located at the Glendale Civic Auditorium, there will be over 80 dealer tables with tens of thousands of vintage paperbacks for sale. Come meet over 45 authors and artists. You can bring your books and have them sign their works for free!


WonderCon Anaheim - March 29-31, 2024 - Anaheim, CA 

San Diego Comic-Con's little sister in the Anaheim Convention Center.  We will be located at Booth 1509.

Inquire about employment opportunities for experienced cashiers and booth staff.


San Diego Comic-Con - July 25-28, 2024 - San Diego, CA

Our 400-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.

Inquire about employment opportunities for experienced cashiers and booth staff.


LIGHTBOX EXPO - October 127-29 2023 - 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.
