Hard to believe the San Diego Comic-Con is at the end of this week. I’ll be there again this year, but I will not have my own booth. That experiment did not go as well as I’d hoped last year. It was fun to have my own space, but the location wasn’t great and it took a lot of work to sell enough stuff just to pay the booth fee before there was any profit being made.
This year I will be at the National Cartoonists Society booth (#1307/1309) much of the time, and will have posted, scheduled hours at the booth as to when I will definitely be there signing and drawing. I will have plenty of copies of The Mad Art of Caricature! on hand, which I will be selling signed for a special Comic-Con price of $20 and can also do either a drawing of Alfred E. Neuman in it for an extra $10 or a caricature of YOU in it for an extra $15. I’ll also have caricature drawing stuff with to do regular caricatures for $25 (plus tax on all sales, of course). Such a deal :roll:. Oh, I’ll also have a few pieces of original MAD movie and TV parody artwork for sale at $175-$250 per page.
