Each year we sponsor an artist to attend San Diego Comic Con International, which unless you've only recently been decanted from a Carbonite slab you'll know as the most storied and sought-after convention of its kind in the known universe. The Foundation's program provides a Sponsored Artist with up to two (2) 4-day badges for access to the sold out convention along with an opportunity to showcase their portfolio, sell product, and network from the KWF booth. For more details, check out the Sponsored Artist Program overview, and be sure to read the FAQ. Keep your hailing frequencies open and join our mailing list to hear the latest. But most importantly:
If you're an artist, a fan of an artist, or friends and family of an artist, we want to hear from you! Go here to submit an application or nomination.
And as we pause here, in late November, to consider the approaching holidays, let's also be thankful. Let's be thankful for all the artists and their creations that have inspired us.
Look around, watch the news. Our planet is a big, sometimes rough, often chaotic place, where too few of us sit high enough on the rungs of Maslow's Hierarchy to regularly create and appreciate art. In too many places, the season is neither happy nor abundant with reasons to be thankful. With so many pressing needs, we might wonder, why focus on art? Well, to get that answer, we have to start at first principles.
