NYC-based online artist community Tenlegs, found at Tenlegs.com, announced that it will co-sponsor the SonicBoomBox New York Comic Con After Party in conjunction with Midtown Comics and other sponsors.
Held on Friday, October 11, 2013 at The Hudson Bond, the after party will be geared toward comic book artists and fans and hosted by Vampy Bit Me. The party offers an opportunity for attendees to gather over drinks, music, and video games after the day’s NYCC events.
Tenlegs’ involvement helps add a special charitable aspect to the event. Working with comic pros, including Khary Randolph (host of Drink & Draw NYC), Ken Lashley, Siya Oum, Edwin Huang and Jason Narvaez, Tenlegs will facilitate fundraising events at the party with proceeds benefiting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (http://cbldf.org).
“Comic illustrators represent a significant group of artists on our site, so we approached Midtown Comics and the CBLDF with the idea of turning this event into a benefit,” said Tenlegs CEO Amit Gupta. “We’re thrilled that Tenlegs is able to help turn what is already an exciting event into one that also impacts the comic book art community”
SonicBoomBox NYCC After Party will be held on Friday, October 11, 2013 at 8:30pm at The Hudson Bond (215 West 40th Street). Tickets, available at the door, are $10, and all attendees must be 21+ to enter.
