So yeah. I hate teasers if that hasn’t been made clear enough over the last couple years.
Bigger and better things though! You know how we are going to Emerald City Comicon this weekend? Well, how would you like to join the team while we are there?
Starting with Seattle, at each of the shows we put up our shingle this year, we will be hiring one reader/fan to spend the weekend with us and work as one of the Blind Ferret Crew!
You’ll work behind the booth, sell the goods, run around the show and city when need be and generally do what’s needed.
The best part? The weekend-employee will be compensated. With actual money. Not just the play money stuff we have here in Canada!
Your work day starts one hour before the convention opens and ends one hour after it closes. It may seem like a long day, but it will fly by as we tend to have a wee bit of fun at these events that we want you to be part of.
So who are we looking for? Well, you must be over 18, pretend to find Sohmer amusing, have a somewhat morally… casual, attitude and that’s about it.
What do you get? We will cover your Weekend Pass for the Convention, give you an Hourly Wage and take care of a couple of expenses (not including travel, or lodging).
How does one apply? Simply send an e-mail to SOHMER at BLINDFERRET dot COM with your name, age and why we should hire you. Please note that nude selfies will not be considered in this contest (but couldn’t hurt).
Also, we are only accepting applications for Seattle right now. Applications for other shows will come as we get closer to those dates.
If you’ve got any questions, fire away in the comments! We’ll do our best to notice them!
Now, with all that out of the way, Today’s page comes to us from the one and only Mike Decarlo:
Mike DeCarlo was born on March 14, 1957 in New Haven, CT. After graduating Notre Dame High School and studying art for 2 years at Southern CT ST College, he began his professional career as sports cartoonist for The New Haven Register in 1977. He left that position in 1979 to begin apprenticeship with the legendary Dick Giordano and after 18 months branched off to begin a solo career in the comic book industry. Over the next dozen years, he worked primarily as an ink artist on such titles as Batman, Teen Titans, Green Lantern, Thor, Iron Man and Conan the Barbarian. In the mid-nineties, his focus changed to the cartoon/animation genre and worked as an artist on Looney Tunes, Powerpuff Girls, Ben-10, Scooby-Doo and Pinky & the Brain among others. In the last decade, in addition to the work he now does for The Simpsons comic company Bongo Entertainment, he works for Disney Worldwide Publishing on Phineas & Ferb, Marvel Superheroes Magazine and Spider-Man Magazine. Mike also has extended his repertoire into the digital field, becoming accomplished at digital inking in Illustrator and coloring in Photoshop. He also has an active commercial website www.fancommissions.com which engages the general public in personalized drawings. Mike is happily married since 1981 and has raised 4 children and currently resides in Stratford, CT.
Have a great week, friends! See some of you in Seattle and all of you back here Friday!
