Live from the St. Louis NCN MiniCon

March 3rd, 2008 | Posted in News

The St. Louis NCN MiniCon kicked off nicely last night with an icebreaker reception at the convention hotel. There is a very good turnout for this event, including two artists from Japan, one from Korea and one from Israel! Today’s festivities kick off at 9:30 with an opening meeting and speakers throughout the day including Joe Bluhm.

Artists are already sketching away at the icebreaker
