New Zealand. We’re known for producing some pretty impressive things. Lord of the Rings, Pavlova, Zorbing. But what if I told you that some of us were pretty keen artists too? Don’t believe me? You don’t have to. You can see it for yourself this Sunday, at New Zealand’s newest arts festival: Chromacon.
Chromacon is an annual event aimed at showing the world our best and brightest. Over 70 New Zealand based artists – illustrators and comic artists alike – will be in attendance this year. People like Tim Gibson, creator of Moth City , Faction Comics and more will be available for workshops, demos, and just being available to talk all day, giving you the chance to get close and personal with some of our most impressive artists we have to offer.
Chromacon 2013 is this Sunday, May 12th, all day, taking place in the Aotea Centre in Auckland. It’s free entry, so you really have no reason not to check it out. You can find out more information from their website www.chromacon.co.nz, or through their Facebook and Twitter.
I’ll also be in attendance, so if you want to put a face to the name, hit me up on my Twitter, @Pipes815. I’m not nearly as exciting as these people are, but I promise I’ll say hello.
