Kettle Art is located at 2650 Main St., Dallas.
On Memorial Day weekend, NCS/Texas Chapter member Davy Jones will be appearing at Alamo City Comic Con in San Antonio, but so will legendary cartoonist GUY GILCHRIST!!!!
I am so excited. The news just broke late yesterday. I have already sent a message to the promoter asking if I can have my table next to Guy…. which more than likely won’t happen, but it was worth asking.
Also on Mother’s Day weekend, I will be at Comicpalooza in Houston.
I cannot wait to meet Guy!!!!!!
Miguel Aguilar is our newest chapter member. “Miggy” brings a fun underground art style to our group as well as his great caricature talents!
