Inkwell Awards Announces 8th Season Convention Tour
(New Bedford, MA/USA-September 02, 2014): The non-profit Inkwell Awards has scheduled their upcoming convention appearances for the first half of their eighth season tour to support the group's mission of promoting, educating and recognizing the art form of inking and ink artists in the comic book industry.
The first stop the Granite State Comicon in Manchester, NH this September 13-14. The advocacy is making its first appearance there since 2010, with Inkwell founder/director Bob Almond and Anna White as their spokesmodel Ms. Inkwell. Along with assorted merchandise available at their booth, they will hold raffles for original art featuring Batman, Poison Ivy and Thor by industry and fan favorites.
Next is the Rhode Island Comic Con in Providence on November 1-2. Joining Almond and Ms. Inkwell will be several committee members and special Inkwell ambassadors J. David Spurlock and the legendary Joe Sinnott, the namesake of the charity's Hall of Fame Award and its annual Inking Challenge event and book collection.
"The fans love our friend Joe as do we. Since he doesn't do many shows these days, it's a huge celebration when we reunite. The fans enjoy it as much as he does," said Almond. “Meeting a living legend is a rare treat.”
Later show stops will take place towards the end of the season in May and June of 2015 with the Hartford and Heroes Cons, to be announced later.
