This Weekend: MoCCA Art Festival

If you’re in Manhattan this weekend you should go to the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art’s Sixth Annual Arts Festival. $10 buys you a weekend pass for an event that’s features everything from Bill Sienkiewicz signing autographs to Nordic animation. No this isn’t some oversized overhyped event like you’d find in say San Diego, but this low key event is a real chance to hang out with professionals in a relaxed atmosphere. Well as relaxed as one can get in NYC anyway…

Here are the full details:

The Sixth MoCCA Art Festival is almost here, and the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art is proud to announce its schedule of artists who have agreed to draw for us at our Fundraising Sketch Table on the 7th Floor of the Puck Building:

Saturday, June 23rd:

1pm-3pm: Scott Hanna (Amazing Spider-Man, Uncanny X-Men, Thunderbolts)

3pm-4:15pm: Alison Bechdel (THIS YEAR’S GUEST OF HONOR – Dykes to Watch Out For, Fun Home)

3:30pm-5pm: Dean Haspiel (The Billy Dogma Experience, American Splendor,Bizarro Comics)

Sunday, June 24th:

11am-Noon: Joe Matt (The Poor Bastard, Spent)

1pm-3:30pm: Joe Staton (E-Man, Doom Patrol, The Huntress, Scooby-Doo)

4pm-5:30pm: Bill Sienkiewicz (Elektra: Assassin, Stray Toasters, Daredevil: End of Days)

4pm-5:30pm: Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies, Heavy Metal, Tarzan)

In addition to doing sketches for donations, Mssrs. Sienkiewicz and Suydam, two visionary painters in the comics medium, will use their time to collaborate on a single painting that will be auctioned off at a future MoCCA fundraiser! Come by the sketch table on the 7th floor and watch them work!

Also, although they couldn’t be with us at the show we will have original drawings graciously donated by FRED HEMBECK, RON GARNEY, KEITH KNIGHT and others for sale! So don’t forget to browse the portfolios as your waiting for one of the scheduled artists to crank out your favorite character.

See you at the Art Fest!
