Local Artist, SpoCon Attending Professional, and creator of Catbeard the Pirate, Matt Nelson needs your help. Matt has lost his home to fire. An icky fire. Sadly, Matt has 'lost' his orginal artwork - the good news is his back up drive of his scanned works survived! Better yet, his four footed feline pal Jiji is alive and well. Our friend Nathan O'Brien, artist and founder of Lilac City Comicon has kicked off a GoFundMe to help Matt out: http://www.gofundme.com/yp5e58r
Here at SpoCon we love our Cosplayers. Each and every one of them. Why? They are what really makes SpoCon what it's all about -- expressing creativity and celebrating fandom. A few years back, photographer Corey Hayes went to New York Comic-Con and... well, basically fell in love with Cosplay. Not just the costumes, but the people in that costume. The same thing happened to SpoCon -- we fell in love with you.
