SDCC flights have just been booked for Barry, me and the kiddos! Don't know either of our booth #'s yet. This is my 1st time setting 2007! I loved the previous years I'd set up! So excited but scared. Like my nerves aren't shot enough already. Gulp! #stresscase #create2018 #create #sdcc #sandiegocomiccon #comicbooks #comics #art #conventionscene #comicbookconventions #comicconvention #comiccon #comicshows #sandiego

I announced it on my Facebook about a month ago, but realized I left out my Instagram peeps on the 411. I have managed to secure a spot in Artists’ Alley at San Diego Comic-Con 2018! My actual location in the Alley might change before the doors open in July. Will update ya’ll when I know! Anyway, gotta get back to my new piece I will be debuting at the show. Hope to start teasing some of it in the coming week #comiccon #sdcc #sandiegocomiccon #sdcc2018 #artistsalley #artistalley #drawsiness #bobdrawsstuff
- The Art of Jeprox is busy working on a special SDCC project. From what we see on Instagram, we’re excited to see the finished product.
- If you were wondering if Giant Robot will be at SDCC 2018, you’ll be happy to see it appear on their Events Calendar.
- San Diego game creators The Behemoth also have SDCC 2018 listed on their Events page.
- San Diego Comic-Con is on Tee Turtle’s Convention Schedule as well. Stop and visit them and give them a high five (or warm hug if you’re so inclined).
- According to his Appearance page, artist Caleb King will be at SDCC 2018 in Artists Alley at Table #DD-10.
- Tech company Dent will be presenting material at SDCC 2018. They’re also holding a special Dent: Dinner at San Diego Comic-Con for their Dent Passport holders that will feature speakers from NASA as well as MIT’s Media Lab.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle co-creator Kevin Eastman once again has SDCC on his Tour Schedule, according to fan site Kevin Eastman Studios. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for further announcements from him.
- Fans of The Expanse were relieved to see it picked up by Amazon Prime following its cancellation at Syfy. Producer Naren Shankar took to Twitter to thank fans for their support and dropped a big hint that we’ll see The Expanse at SDCC again this year. Now, if NBC would just let us know about Timeless…
btw: I meant to say something earlier, but I spent the bulk of yesterday pinching myself to make sure that what happened Friday night actually did. I also bought a bunch of stuff on Amazon. Seemed only proper. See you @SDCC
