Manhattan’s largest independent comics, cartoon and animation festival, This two-day multimedia event draws over 7,000 attendees each year. 500 exhibiting artists display their work, award-winning honorees speak about their careers and artistic processes and other featured artists conduct demos, lectures and panels. The Fest’s mission accelerates the advancement of the Society’s effort to serve as Manhattan’s singular cultural institution promoting all genres of illustration through exhibitions, programs and art education.
To promote this year’s Fest, the Society asked previous MoCCA Arts Fest exhibitor and Award of Excellence gallery artist/creator Yadi Liu, to create a colorful, celebratory image for the cover of the Souvenir Journal. The images are featured prominently on all advertising and promotional materials, as well as a selection of merchandise available to purchase at the SI Booth.
Said Executive Director Anelle Miller, “Yadi’s art really captures our excitement for the return of the Fest. After several years of challenges and disappointments, we are so happy to welcome everyone back.”
In addition to Liu’s art, the Society also engaged other notable artists to create work for the show. Natalie Andrewson’s whimsical creatures will be displayed on the badges, and Patrick McDonnell’s quirky MUTTS characters will be featured as spot illustrations found throughout the Fest. These featured artists will be attending the Fest, and their schedules and table locations are available.
