Our Mission

Have you noticed that costs, including those at comic conventions, have been on the rise? Well, we have too, and that’s why we’re excited to offer an affordable alternative.

Our goal is to provide a platform for talented indie artists to showcase their amazing work while keeping costs low for both exhibitors and attendees. We’ve taken great care to calculate our expenses to ensure that everyone can have a fantastic experience without breaking the bank.

We believe that art should be accessible to everyone, and we’re thrilled to work together to make that happen. Our passion lies in the world of old school storytelling and indie artists and comics, and we’re excited to help you discover stories and comics you might not have known before. So why not take a break from the everyday Marvel fest and dive into something new with us at the InkBlot Independent Creators Expo?
