May Geeky Must Haves-C2E2 Edition

The Illinois D20 girls spent this weekend at C2E2 the Midwest’s biggest Comic and Entertainment Convention.

We met tons of awesome cosplayers and made new geeky friends as well as buy a bunch of geeky stuff. I don’t know about you but my absolute favorite part of Cons is strolling through artist alley. I always find amazing unique artwork and creative crossovers I never thought I needed so badly. It’s also really great to be able to meet the artists that put in the hard work and be able to show them your appreciation personally. So here are a couple of the artists who stood out to me and lucky for you, they have prints available for purchase online.

Zsombor Huszka

Zsombor is a freelance artist that illustrates comic books and directs 2d animations. He is currently working on: Chasing Rabbits and the series of the ongoing comic book Saint Chaos. Here are a couple of my favorite prints he has for sale.
