For Immediate Release
New York City – 1/30/2012 — Big City Dare2Draw and Museum of Comic Book Art (MoCCA) are pleased to announce Dare2Draw at MoCCA, with up-and-coming talent Josh Adams, Liza Biggers, Jennifer Crute, Giovanni Valletta and Klaus Shmidheiser, who will be drawing and sharing some thoughts about their experiences as professionals, finding their niche. Our talented special guests will give us the inside scoop. We’re thrilled to have these very talented artists talking with our always engaging Dare2Draw host, TJ Glenn, “the Urban Swashbuckler”.

Featuring 90 minutes of dynamic figure drawing, with live-action models & props and our signature Dare2Draw “Quick Draw” Contests, with all art done on Blue Line Pro boards. Prizes provided by our sponsors.

The Dare2Draw is a mentoring and networking platform for all artists, an opportunity to connect each other, face-to-face. Established artists and arts organizations meet in a supportive setting, putting the art back in sequential art. There are contests and prizes, with a fun and engaging game show vibe. We’ll continue to showcase new artists to keep an eye out for!

About MoCCA
The purpose of the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art is the collection, preservation, study, education, and display of comic and cartoon art.
The main goal of the museum is to educate the public about comic and cartoon art, how it is crafted, and how it reflects history. What does the art tell us about the time period that it was created in? How does it stand the test of time? What First Amendment issues regarding content come into play? How does censorship determine what is (and isn't) published?
