Springfield Book Signing






Freestyle Komics is so proud and excited for our first book release in another city, Springfield Ohio at Main Street Comics and Games. It only makes sense that the city where Sketch Battles were inaugurated is the city to host our first out of city book Signing.
Due to it being the first signing out of the greater Columbus area we have big plans for the event. We are taking orders on color commissions of freestyle Komics Characters, selling posters, releasing exclusive new prints from FSK, selling issues 0-3 of Hotshot, Sketch Battles, contest and Portfolio reviews.
We will be doing commissions, not just sketches but full fledged commissions. Tools used will be pencil, inks, white acrylic, markers, sharpies and these commissions will cost 5 bucks! It will be a limited run you will have to hit the blogsite and leave comments under this article requesting your character you want us to draw. You can choose from Hotshot, Vigilance, Void, Justice, or Carla.
We will have the "Hotshot Kills Broad and High" Poster for sell. It will be 18 x 24 in. full color poster selling for 10 bucks. We will have exclusive new 11 x 17 prints featuring new and old artist from FSK. We will of course have issues #0-3 of Hotshot to sell and sign for fans.
The epic return of SKETCH BATTLES to the city that made them popular. See us battle it out to see who can create the better freestyle art off the top of our heads. You pick the character and we draw it with no reference.
FSK is looking for new pencilers, inkers and colorist to join or crew to make komics, go to conventions, and most of all get our names out there to the komics community.
Do you want to win the "The Hotshot Kills Broad and High" poster for free, check the blogsite on November 10 2009 to find out how you can win it.
