Another year of Comic Con is come and gone! This year I had the pleasure of participating on the Full Time Creative Work on a Part Time Schedule panel. With over 200 + people in attendance (a great number seeing we were the very last panel at this years con) we covered how to network, find other talent you can work with and dispensed all kinds of nuggets of wisdom in the hour we had. After the panel we met up by the pool at the Marriott with attendees and kept it going till after 8pm. This was a fun and rewarding experience for me and I look forward to doing it again next year with everyone on the panel! Thanks again to Topher for getting all this together (and herding the cats) and to Aleister for moderating at the last minute.

Whether you’re a hobbyist or looking to go pro, if you struggle with deadlines, need help finding collaborators, or simply want to know how to get your foot in the door, this panel is not to be missed!
