Topic: Other Cons
Katie Cook... Just notified her Facebook Friends that she would be attending the 'Midwest Nonsports Card Show' in the Toledo, Ohio area this weekend!
She will be having a table at this show, which though it is a smaller show, and not a 'comic con', will have several guests, dealers, artists, and of course other collectors in attendance!
I have been to several smaller shows / cons in the past, and have found items to purchase at them, that the dealers wouldn't take to bigger shows because of the high cost for limited table space at the bigger shows / cons. Dealers can only take so much! So if you are into non-sports cards, and in the Toledo, Ohio area, you might want to check this show out that is run by Paul Maiellaro!
What got my attention right off the bat about Katie going to this show, was when I followed her link about the show. I found her Fantastic Four card that is shown at the top left of this blog post which jumped out at me! Being a long time FF collector, I also collect other FF items besides the comic book series. The card shown above is her second artist proof for the Rittenhouse Archives Fantastic Four Trading Card Set!
Katie has also created sketch cards for other series including: Topps NBC Heroes, Topps Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Upperdeck Marvel Masterpieces II, and several more!
Katie is also currently working on the new 'Star Wars the Clone Wars' webcomic for www.starwars.com!
You can catch up with other artwork at her own web site at:
