Virtual Art Contest: Animal Companions


Whether it's Hedwig from Harry Potter, Mushu from Mulan, or Epona from The Legend of Zelda, great heroes (and even some villains!) always have an animal companion they can rely on. Draw your favorite animal companion and share it with us!

Entries will be accepted either in person or by email from July 26-September 26 in three age categories: Tweens (grades 4-8), Teens (grades 9-12), and Adults (18+). The link to vote will be posted on our ComiCon website for the duration of ComiCon Week. Prizes will be awarded to the winners in each category.

Come to the Questions Desk for more details. Voting will begin on October 10.


Artist Alley

Check out some of our artists from previous years! Due to the pandemic, we can't have our usual Artist Alley where attendees could see some cool art and meet with the artists. We've tried to recreate that as much as possible, so enjoy the websites below and take a look through their work and see all the cool things they have done!
