With the 2011 Heroes Comic Con (http://www.heroesonline.com/heroescon/) only about two weeks away, The Inkwell Awards (http://inkwellawards.com) have more details to share about their final 2011 Inkwell tour stop and the scheduled ceremony to take place that weekend of June 3-5.
“While this is our fourth annual awards culmination, it’s our first live ceremony, so we want to make it special”, shared Bob Almond, the non-profit organization’s founder and director. “Much of our inking advocacy will be at the show and for the ceremony, which will take place Saturday afternoon at the Charlotte Convention Center at a room and time slot to be announced. We have some notable creators who are graciously involved with the proceedings like artist Dan Panosian who will act as Keynote Speaker. Artist and former Inkwell committee member Tim Townsend will act as our Presenter. Tim will announce the results from the on-line April public ballot. There was a phenomenal response this year at the ballot box and there are some real surprises from our tally of winners. I’ll be hosting the ceremony. Acting as hostess will be our spokeswoman, Ms. Inkwell, who will be portrayed at this venue by model Kathy Taylor. We’d hoped to have Joe Sinnott attend the event as our Guest of Honor, but that wasn’t ultimately possible. We hope Joe can attend in this capacity in 2012.”
