Under the Tents: Neysa Bové, Lorelay Bové, Amy Mebberson, Camilla d’Errico, Raymond E. Feist

As it was pointed out on our last SDConCast, SDCC is next week! But it’s all good – you’re going to be completely prepared, because you read The San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog’s Under the Tents column every day. And we appreciate that! In this UTT, we have great SDCC news from Disney artists galore like Amy Mebberson and Lorelay Bové, authors Shannon Messenger and Raymond E. Feist, and a whole lot more.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Justin Harder is bringing so much stuff to SDCC, we don’t know how it’s going to fit on his Small Press Table #O-08. These prints will make you want to give him more of your money (as if he wasn’t already taking enough of it).

  • One of Disney’s most prolific artists, Amy Mebberson, took some time out from her massive D23 preps to tease a little SDCC exclusive. Like Brad Pitt, we’re left wondering, “What’s in the box?!” You’ll have to run to Table #F-07 to find out.

  • Artist Scott Blair continues his Tribute to 90s Anime series with his Princess Mononoke 5″x7″ print. Find it with the rest of the series in Artists Alley at Table #FF-18.

  • Sean Forney showed off another SDCC commission he’s working on. If you didn’t order one, you’ll have to head to Table #AA-15 in Artists Alley to see what amazing works he has available.

  • Looking for some cool vinyl stickers? Chris Gugliotti will have these at Table #BB-15 in Artists Alley.

Fresh new stickers for SDCC2017 thanks to my boys @vinylplug #sdcc2017 #chrisgugliotti

  • Alex from SoCal Costumes will have a very busy SDCC. She’ll be a Jedi, a Scavenger, and a lot more. She looks like she’ll be in a little bit of everything this year, so you’ll have to track her down, if you can, to get some pics with her.

  • Here comes the sun (do-do-dooo). Neysa Bové revealed this sunny mini-painting she’ll have with her at Gallery Nucleus’ Booth #2643.
  • Not to be outdone is her sister, Lorelay Bové, who will have this beautiful Dragon Flight piece at Gallery Nucleus’ Booth #2643 as well. A little sibling competition makes for some great art with these two.

  • The man who has voiced the Caped Crusader for decades in his animated series and feature films, Kevin Conroy, will be signing autographs in Sails Pavilion. Head to Table #AA-33 on Thursday, July 20 from 10AM-2PM and on Saturday, July 22 from 10AM-2:30PM if you’re interested.

  • Robert McKeone has a sweet deal. If you go to Booth #5523 and get your San Diego Public Library card with his art on it, he’ll give you this 8″x10″ print free when you bring it to his Artists Alley Table #AA-19! Only to the first 50, though, so get there early.

  • Pantheon Books is hosting a number of author signings and giveaways. Check out their Facebook Event for all the juicy literary goodness that’s coming to Booth #1515 at SDCC.

  • Are you planning to attend any panels at the San Diego Public Library? If you are, then The Kaiju Kingdom Podcast: Discuss Monsters panel on Saturday at 1PM is the one you want to see. They’re offering this print, signed by IDW artist Livio Ramondelli, free to the first 100 attendees.

  • Devlin Wilder is very excited to announce he’ll be signing in the Sails Pavilion at SDCC this year. Check out his Facebook post to see when he’ll be at Table #AA-16.

  • Author Raymond E. Feist is hard at work on his latest project, King of Ashes, but as we all know, San Diego Comic-Con preparations tend to derail projects. He is planning to visit the Harper Collins Booth #1029, so if you have a book of his you’d like signed, that’s the place to be.

  • If the Green Power Ranger was your favorite, get over to BOOM! Studios Booth #2229 starting at 5PM for autographs, photo ops, and more with Jason David Frank.

  • Free swag! Now that we have your attention, the free swag in question comes from author Shannon Messenger, who will be giving these away at the signing after her panel, and they will be giving them away at the Simon and Schuster Booth #1128 as well.
  • Artist David Colman posted the last of his three adorable SDCC sculptures he will have with the rest of his series at Booth #1134.

Behold the shiny buttons I'll be giving out at #SDCC (I'll have them at the signing after my panel on Thur, and the S&S booth will have some to give away as they see fit as well, so if you're at the Con, hopefully you can get your hands on one). And for those who *aren't* attending–never fear! I'll save some for an online giveaway (not sure when that will be–sometime this month once I'm more caught up on deadlines, probably. So keep an eye out for it). And don't worry, there will be lots of awesome swaggish goodies up for grabs in a few months during the NIGHTFALL pre-order giveaway. Exact details on that giveaway, and how to claim your swag pack, won't be posted until October. But all pre-orders will count, so feel free to order any time! More info on all of that later, I promise! #kotlc #keeperofthelostcities
