Are you at San Diego Comic-Con this year? Come visit our booth at #1930 on the convention floor, right next to Neal Adams and Oni Press, just across the way from Sideshow Collectibles.

You can meet our curator, Andrew Farago (when he’s not moderating a panel, talking to editors, or signing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History at the Insight Editions booth, #1318) plus a host of guest artists sketching at our table for small donations to the museum. (Note to artists at Comic-Con: schedules change, and we sometimes have open seats, so if you’re interested in dropping in and drawing some on-the-spot commissions with us at the Cartoon Art Museum booth, stop on by and help us raise some money for the museum!)
