Cross Country Comic Con Buttons: Pins for Calgary Comic Expo and Northern Gaming Expo April 23 2018
Buttons at Comic Expos are popular and we are always keen to see the drawings of artists who come through the shop to make their buttons with us.
There are two shows coming up this spring in two different parts of Canada, so we’d like to feature an artist attending each show in hopes that you can get out to a show if you are nearby and support talented artists like these two.
Mackenzie Wagner is a self-taught artist from Calgary who will be attending the Calgary Comic Expo that takes place April 26 – 29. There is a good line-up of celebrities on the schedule too! From Jason Mamoa and Meghan Follows to Chris Jericho, Christopher Lloyd and more!
She works under the name boredlydoodling and more of her work can be found on www.boredlydoodling.com, on Instagram and through her YouTube channel. You will be able to find her and her fantastic pins in Artist Alley.
Danielle Leger is a Sudbury-based comic artist who will be attending the Northern Gaming Expo http://northerngameexpo.com/ at Sudbury’s Cambrian College on April 29th.
Her 1-1/2” Custom Round Buttons feature the characters from the game Overwatch by Blizzard.
Follow Leger to see what she is creating on Tumblr and Twitter.
Both artists also accept commissions if you like their style and would like them to create something for you.
