Like everything else, things completely changed in 2020. Among the losses was the annual CrockerCon––the pop culture convention held at the world class Sacramento art museum, the Crocker Art Museum. Sadly, COVID brought me the distinct honor of being the poster designer for the last in-person CrockerCon in 2019. With time, patience, and vaccines, the Crocker and the con organizers feel it is safe enough to bring the event––my favorite event––back into its hallowed halls. And I couldn’t be more excited!

I should say up front that the Crocker is taking COVID very seriously, and attendees are going to be required to provide proof of vaccination for entry and have required its exhibitors to do the same. They’re being as cautious as they can possibly be and I am incredibly thankful for it.

Of course, what I’m most excited about is to see all my local artist friends again, to catch up and hope, if even for a single even, to feel like old times again.

CrockerCon 2022 will be held on Thursday, April 14, from 6-9pm. Register for tickets at
