Coming to Hal-Con – Nov 8-10 2013!

Just announced – I’ll be a Guest at Hal-con in Halifax, Nova Scotia this November 8-10! This will be my first visit to Canada ever and my first convention outside the USA! I couldn’t be more excited!

I’ve been intrigued by Hal-Con since they first got on my radar. Hal-con describes itself as the largest Sci-Fi/Comics/Gaming/Fantasy convention in Atlantic Canada, and they sound to me like something of a cousin-to-the-North of CONvergence, the convention I helped start here in Minnesota back in 1999. They’re a big, friendly fan-run convention, with programming and year-round community events that sound a lot like what I know from my years of involvement with CONvergence.

Hal-con even has their own Robot Mascot: Nelson who has his own origin-story video!


I think Nelson and CONvergence’s Connie may need to meet…

Hal-Con also has a robust YouTube channel, with the slogan “not quite entirely unlike live coverage.” Check out the Superhero Workout.

I’ll have more information about my appearance at Hal-con as the dates get closer. In the mean time you can check out their website for more information about the convention.

By the way, my appearance at Hal-Con as a Guest came about because of a conversation that started because a fan asked the convention about having me there. If you want to see me at a convention near you, letting the convention organizers know is the best way to make it happen. Most conventions have a survey or other channels for input from fans/members/attendees. Let them know if you want to see me there!

Coming to Denver Comic Con – May 31-June 2 2013

Comic-Con-630x423

They couldn’t keep me away! In a last-minute addition to my 2013 schedule, I’ll be a guest at the Denver Comic Con at the end of May. I’ll be joining my Young Justice partner-in-crime Greg Weisman at the Denver show, so it’ll be a great opportunity to get us BOTH to sign all those Young Justice comic books and prints! I’m looking forward to this, it’s my first visit to the Denver convention and really my first visit to Denver if you don’t count layovers at the airport.

I’ll have more to say about the Denver show after I get back from the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this weekend!

I’ll be Artist Guest of Honor at ValleyCon this October, in Fargo, North Dakota, where I’ll be joining fellow Convention Guests:

Chase Masterson (Leeta from Deep Space Nine)
C.E. Murphy (Author of the Walker Papers Series)
Zoie Palmer (Lost Girl‘s Dr. Lauren Lewis)

ValleyCon is a festival of popular culture, featuring sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comics, gaming, anime and film & TV!

You can check out all my upcoming appearances on my aptly named Appearances Page.

And remember, if you want to see me at your convention or event, tell the event organizers you want me there! They can contact me at Chris@ChristopherJonesArt.com. I never charge an appearance fee but help with travel and hotel costs is always a plus!

I’m looking forward to seeing meeting new friends and fans at ValleyCon this October, and in the meantime I’ll be hoping for a late start to our upper-midwest Winter weather this year!
