Another year of WonderCon 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 100 + people in attendance (a great number seeing we were one of 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 at the Hilton 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 and at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con! Thanks again to Topher for getting all this together, everyone on the panel, Cat for moderating and to Aleister once again doing the panel with me.

I did this panel at last year’s San Diego Comic Con and it was a blast (click here for photos and info from ComicCon). We hope to do it again at Comic Con again this year as well!
