Scouting for Artists At MOCCA Fest 2016

| Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on


As scripts for our Eco-Friendly Horror tale Beth are nearing completion, I decided to wander through the Mocca Fest this past Saturday to see if I might just stumble onto the perfect artist that could help us pull this crazy story off. 

A show like the Mocca fest is really a treat to behold.  Every single artist presenting their wares were vastly different from whomever sat at the tables to the left, right, or anywhere around them. 

Every voice I heard was original and sincere.

Every story was a story that the creator truly needed to tell.

Simply put, it was the most optimistic group of people at a Con I had ever met. 

At the more massive Mega Cons like NYCC, C2E2, SDCC, etceteraCon, its more difficult to meet and converse with creators, because its really just a million square feet of fans queuing up to watch a preview of the Walking Dead (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with that) which makes networking difficult.

At Mocca Fest however, there was no problem striking up a conversation, getting to the heart of why they do what they do, discussing hopes and dreams for projects, and as a result I find myself in a quandary.  I met too many artists with too much talent for me to possibly wrap my head around this.  Some would bring an ironic style to the book, a realistic style, or even a 1980's cartoony style.  I met an artist that did amazing sequential water colors. I love watercolors!

Fortunately, I grabbed a very large stack of comics and corresponding business cards to refer to. 

I guess it is time to get reading.

A Feature Comedy is in the works for 2016!  I guess you could call this a thematic sequel to For the Love of Pudding and the Independent.  All I can tell you at this point is the title, "Happy Birthday America!" If we got Steve Carell for this film, it would make about a billion dollars!

The Independent

The 2006 Senate election.  Control of the Senate was for the taking with 33 of the 100 seats being challenged.  Balanced hinged on one independent.  This is Senator Ronnie Pudding's campaign commercial as seen in the upcoming series, "The Independent," a political mocumentary starring Joseph Small, Cynthia Foster and Kimberly Robertson.
