If you’ve never been to Intervention, maybe consider trying for it next year. Its name stands for “Internet-Convention”. It is the brain child of Onizumi Hartstein and James Harknell and is basically… an internet culture convention with an emphasis on creative works we share with the world at large over the internet. It’s one of the best conventions around for anyone, and I do mean anyone, who is looking to get started in webcomics, writing in general, making and playing games, using and learning about marketing strategies and networking.
We had a fun weekend that started out not so fun on Friday when we had to miss our first panel because of several accidents on the beltway around DC. But we made it and enjoyed hanging out and doing panels with Jen Zyren Smith of LaSalle’s Legacy, Pete Abrams of Sluggy Freelance, Robin Dempsey of Ley Lines, and Shaenon Garrity and Jeffery C. Wells of Skin Horse. We were so busy the whole con that we only got the last two hours or so on Sunday to actually look around at any of the other vendors’ tables.
Other awesome artists and writers we ran into:
Liz Staley of Adrastus
Monica Marier and Rachael Hixon of Tangent Artists
Eric Menge of Snow By Night
Darrenn E. Canton, Illustrator
