Sean has produced a special Kidz Day Sketch Book that he will be giving away to the first 50 Kids at his booth on Sunday. If any other artists or vendors would like to participate with their own KIDZ DAY Promotion, email your promotion to pcomicon@... and indicate in the subject line that it is a Kids Day Promotion.
I will be listing all the Kidz Day Events and Participant in the 2009 Program Book
(Again, all I ask is that your kids day promotion be AGE APPROPRIATE.)
