San Diego Comic-Con 2014 DeviantArt schedule and mega meet up

The comic-con of our dreams, San Diego Comic-Con, is July 24-27th 2014. As always, promises to be brimming with the very best of geek culture (watch the video above for a SDCC history lesson). Many geek groups use San Diego Comic-Con as a prime time to meet up and share their common (and uncommon) fandoms and hobbies. DeviantArt, one of SDCC's sponsors this year, will be in attendance with helpful how-to panels and their very first San Diego Comic-Con meet up.

Wednesday, July 23 at 10 to ?, the DeviantArt meet up will take place at the Analog Bar and is for 21 and up only. They instruct you to bring your ID, phones/tablets, sketchbooks, cameras. According to the event info (seen here), the meet up will be a place to:”… rock out with the artists and creators who make the entire industry possible!”

A gathering of ‘Deviant” geeks, sounds like my kind of party, how about you?

Here are the dets on the panels (quoted from here):
