Fall 2007 Upcoming Creative Events

Some local events that Dallas sketch artists might want to check out:

Wizard World Texas
This fun comic book convention will be taking place November 16-18, 2007 at the Arlington Convention Center. Read this article for a review of last year’s successful event and hear about some of the professional artists that had booths in the Artists Alley. It should be a great place to get some creative inspiration.

Edit: You can also read more about this year's WWTX here. Thanks to Aron for the additional info.

Waxahachie World War 2 Weekend
Apparently Waxahachie is turned into an occupied French town and is recaptured by the Allies for the weekend of November 9-11. Also includes other events honoring veterans. Might be a great opportunity for some life drawing or possibly reference photography for future projects...

If anyone has any additional event info they'd like to share, post a comment to this entry with link to the event website (if there is one) and we'll get it added.
