This Saturday, November 7th from 12 noon to 3 pm Art Baltazar will be on hand for Amazing Fantasy Frankfort's KID'S DAY! Should be a blast!
I've already mentioned this event on a previous post, but now that the event is right around the corner, I wanted to remind everyone.
Why are we calling this "kid's day" and not just a "signing?" We can't call it just a "signing" because it going to be SO much more than that! Art of course will be on hand signing away, and he will be doing FREE quick sketches all day for any fan that shows up (time allowing of course). We also will be giving away FREE balloons to any child that wants one (while supplies last). FREE face-painting by one of our good customers/friends, Brandon. Brandon will happily paint any superhero symbol on your cheek, for FREE. Choose from the classics like Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman, or be daring and challenge Brandon with the likes of the Aquaman symbol (it's a very dated looking capital "A,") or ask him for the Martian Manhunter symbol, I'm sure he would LOVE to paint that one. Or any of the other popular Lantern symbols, I think every child should have a Red Lantern (Rage) symbol painted on their cheek or the Orange (Avarice) symbol, because that would amuse me, and damn it I like to be amused when I come in on a weekend for a special event. There will also be a coloring contest, featuring one of Art's famous Tiny Titans covers. Crayons and table space will be available so the kiddies can color while they are waiting to get their faces painted or waiting for a sketch from Art. Special BONUS: dress you or your child up in a superhero costume and be brave enough to be photographed in it, and you will receive an EXTRA discount on kids comics and graphic novels. Even if you don't wear your favorite superhero costume, there will be special pricing on all kids comics and graphic novels for the duration of the event.
Just look at all the great reasons I have given you to come out to the Frankfort Amazing Fantasy this Saturday from 12 noon-3pm. I hope to see all of you there as well as your kids! This is the perfect event to get your kids excited about reading and comics. Don't have kids? So what, we are all kids at heart, aren't we, otherwise we wouldn't be reading and/or collecting funny books, so why not come on out anyway? Meet Art and get a cool FREE sketch. Art is one of the nicest guys working in comics, and he's absolutely fabulous with the kiddies, and heck even adults like him! If you've never seen Art at a con, next con you go to, be sure to check out his table in artist's alley, he always has a HUGE line because everybody LOVE Art and his art!
Oh Yeah, Awesome!!!!!!
