If you’ve ever wandered through the artist’s alley section of a comic convention (or really any section of a comic convention), you know how awesome it is to be surrounded by so many incredible artists doing their thang. You also know how insanely overwhelming it can be. After all, there are more booths and artists than there is time at any comic convention – how does one choose where to spend their time (and money)?!
So for the upcoming Chicago comic convention C2E2 (we’ll be there! Come say hi!), we wanted to help narrow it down. Here are 13 awesome artists and creatives (who also happen to have amazing Artist Shops) to check out at C2E2 this weekend!
