FallCon 2011

It's always sad once the last convention of the year passes by. Instant Press was representing in MN this past weekend at FallCon and boy was it fun. Dave Gruba, Dann Phillips and Rene Castellano were in attendance and much fun was had. We hope to bring more to the table next year so as we plan our schedules for next year enjoy this look at our season closer.

From Words To Pictures

Hey everybody. This past weekend was a pretty busy weekend for Instant Press. Kicking off the last convention of the season, Dave and Rene did a presentation at the Beverly Arts Center on the south side of Chicago. The kids in the school had a fun project of putting together a comic book about a famous person in history so we were brought in to help mentor them on how comic books are made. A great tag team of artist and writer giving a presentation about the different stages of a comic books life. The kids were great and to our surprise, they had some really great questions. We were expecting stuff like, is Superman real or do we draw Pokemon but that wasn't the case. One question that sticks out in my mind was, "Is there anything that gets lost in the when the artwork is done in black and white rather then color?" I had no idea that's how kids thought these days. I hope they learned alot and Dave and I really had a great time talking to them. Here are some pics of the event.
