In less than two weeks, Comic-Con descends upon San Diego. It's probably the biggest and most publicized pop cultural event in the world, and it only gets bigger each passing year. I've gone a number of times -- as a visitor, a panel participant, and as an artist -- and there's nothing else quite like it. It's fun, exciting, but also exhausting, expensive, and claustrophobic. All qualms aside, it's always a memorable and worthwhile experience.
This year's event includes a very special panel that's dear to my heart, and some of its key players are featured in my documentary.
MASTERS OF THE ILLUSTRATED FILM POSTER takes place on Friday, July 19th, from 1-2pm in room 23ABC at the San Diego Comic-Con Convention Center. Presented by ASIFA-Hollywood and artist Paul Shipper, it's sure to be worthwhile for any art or movie lover!
I'm honored to know Paul, whose been a big supporter of the film since its inception. He and William Stout both did amazing interviews for me on camera, and I can't wait for you to see them.

Here's wishing Paul and team the best of luck!
UPDATE: Here's the full video of the panel. Glad to see that Richard Amsel's influence is mentioned.
