CBLDF: You Can’t Draw That! Live Art Jam
12:15pm – 1:45pm • Room 5AB
Join top artists Tim Seeley (Revival, Hack/Slash), Gabo (The Life After, Elephantmen), Jeromy Cox (Zombie Love, colorist on Promethea), and more to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Comics Code and celebrate its recent demise by creating live art before your eyes. The only rule is that it would have been forbidden by the Comics Code! Artists will talk about censorship and make once-in-a-lifetime art! Get a chance to watch live art made before your eyes, learn about censorship, and bid to win the pieces made here to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
CBLDF is delighted to announce an exclusive signed print from the incomparable J.H. Williams and Todd Klein! This image first appeared in the 2011 CBLDF Liberty Annual and is now recreated exclusively for Comic-Con International 2014.
This beautiful, full color, 22 x 17 inch print, has been numbered and signed by Williams (Sandman: Overture, Promethea, Batwoman) and Todd Klein (Sandman, The DC Comics Guide to Coloring and Lettering Comics). With a limited run of 125 pieces, it’s a very rare item indeed!
The prints will be available for a $75 donation or $50 for CBLDF Members. They will be available throughout Comic-Con International — as long as they last, that is — at booth 1920!
