- Another artist who had to cancel her appearance at WonderCon this year is Kate Carleton. She’s having a “special sale” this weekend instead, so if you were planning to grab something from her, you’ll still be able to do so.
Still missing @c2e2 . Also sad I had to cancel Wondercon this weekend, but I’ll do a special sale this weekend to make up for it. So enjoy this Superboy Commission I did last weekend during the show. #keelhaulkate #katecarleton #illustration #fanart #dccomics #comics #superb… pic.twitter.com/0gvd5teRZI
