Back from a fun weekend in Washington DC! (actually nearby Rockville, MD) This convention was a bit different than most, as it’s based on internet culture as opposed to comic books/pop culture, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The experience was both good and bad, actually. First, the downside. The convention itself wasn’t profitable enough to return next year. Seems as though “Internet Culture” just isn’t my crowd. The upside however is Onezumi and Hartnell have cultivated such a positive and sociable atmosphere that networking was easy and fun, and the creators were made to feel very welcomed with an even playing field among other guests. The hotel was beautiful and everyone was friendly and helpful. The webcomic-creator dinner I helped plan for 16+ people at a nearby brewery restaurant was the cherry on top. I had a blast. And I wish everyone involved with Intervention Con in the future the best of luck, I really hope this convention can flourish as the people in charge certainly have their heads and hearts in the right place.
A huge shout-out to my Intervention buds— my table-buddy TL Collins of Bullfinch, my other table-buddy Chris of Capes and Babes, Liz Staley of Adrastus, Will & Kate of Binary Souls / Other Dimensions, Eric and Brittany of Snow by Night, Travis and Jennifer of Hainted Holler, Carolyn of Curls (among other things), Jennie Breeden of Devil’s Panties, Chris & Ben of A Dog’s Life, plus many more I am failing to list (sorry!). I had a great time guys… oh, and by the way… “I read your webcomic…. Penny Arcade Sucks!”
OOOooooo… Video Footage…
Check out this great video tour of the floor by Tony DiGerolamo of Super Frat! Includes interview with creators (Such as ME!), after party events and lots more!
