The Smudge Expo 2014 Interview…

smudge expo interview


Hey folks… on Saturday, March 8th, 2014 I got the chance to participate in a brand new show here in the Washington, DC area. The show is called “The Smudge Expo” – it was juried show featuring several artists that were local to the area plus a few that were as far away as North Carolina.

The show really catered to kids and their families as they had cartooning workshops and panels throughout the day. Towards the end of the show – by chance – the two organizers of the show, Tina and Matt – just happened to show up at my table and I asked them if they had time for me to record them for the Webcomic Alliance. They said they did so below is the recording I did on my iPhone.

Now, I apologize in advance. I don’t do a lot of recording on my phone so I can never remember if I’m supposed to record with the phone being vertical or horizontal. I, of course, recorded everything vertical so the video is tall rather than wide. But hopefully, it will still provide lots of great resources for anyone that might be interested in attending the Smudge Expo next year. I also wanted to share a few of the photos I took of the event as well. You can view those below the video.

Here are some of the photos I took of the event. The show was on two floor levels. I was on the second floor. Because of this, I decided, instead of having my banners be side by side, I would position them back-to-back so you could see my illustration banner from the floor looking up. You can see what I mean by the pictures below.


me_at_va_comiconChris Flick just figured out how to put his photo and bio information at the end of these Webcomic Alliance articles. When he’s not wracking his brain on how to do that, he’s busy being a full time web and graphic designer working in the Washington DC area. When he’s not doing that, he’s working on his Capes & Babes webcomic which he created back in 2007. When he’s not doing ANY of those things, he’s usually at a convention on the east coast of the United States.

Chris has over 900 Capes & Babes strips. You can read them all by going to his website, Capes & Babes. You can also visit his woefully outdated portfolio web site at  CSF Graphics. And if you’re interested in seeing some of the wild Minion Mash-ups Chris has become known for, you should visit his Pinterest Minion Mash-Up Board. You can also find Chris on Facebook and Twitter by doing a search for “Capesnbabes”.
