This unconventional convention will feature local artistic luminaries incuding Edward Beardsley, Terry Givens, and Matthew Hill discussing their work and the graphic works of others. Breakout sessions, panel discussions, a 'zine-making workshop with Uncle Bacon, and a Shakespearean reading of Star Wars are all topped off with a masquerade ball/parade at the end of the night. 3 days of convention activities in 4 hours. That's compressed fun, and how!
