We had a huge success with the California Republic comic-Con! Thank you Colossal Girl Entertainment for having us there! We were able to meet the group of Hardly Heroes, they are truly a great group of people. We also were able to meet with artists Kevin Green and Corey David. The really big story for us at this con was how well the Charity Dogs did, we were able to raise a lot of money for Project: Superhero, and hope to be back next year to do it all again.
Item 1. All of the banks have been shipped to their respective comic shops. Here's Darren, with the last four banks that went out on 9/7/2017. Item 2. More info about the California Republic Comic-Con exclusive artist, Beth Izard. Beth is an up and coming artist in the central valley. Graduating with a bachelors in fine arts in illustration from CSUF, she hopes to continue working as a freelance illustrator and branch out into the animation field - Her style is whimsical, fun and takes great influence from artists such as her hero, Mary Blair.
We have just gotten a preview of an item that will be at the California Republic Comic-Con hosted by Colossus Girl Entertainment in Merced, September 16, 2017. This was produced by Beth Izard, a local Fresno artist, and will be a convention exclusive.
Just a few days ago, I gave an update about the bank fundraising effort. At that time, we were planning on distributing 16 banks, as of today, that list has grown to 35 vendors! The list of stores is available on the post for Getting ready for Project: Superhero!. We now have 17 of the banks completed. We are expecting to have the rest of the banks ready and in stores by September 8. That date will permit us just over a month for this fund raising effort. Sincerest thanks for your support, Vernon Sanders – Technical Assistant for Project:
