We are really excited to join this year’s MoCCA festival! We are bringing two Patreon creators to showcase their amazing work in the entrance of the exhibitors hall.
A professional adventure cartoonist working out of Helioscope (formerly Periscope Studio) in Portland, OR. Lucy’s comic projects have covered a range of expeditions, including rafting trips through the Grand Canyon, cutting-edge oceanography in the Pacific, and an expedition aboard the last wooden whaling ship in the world! She also contributes comic journalism work to The Nib and all-ages fantasy stories to Cartozia Tales.
Christopher Grady is an elementary school teacher by day and cartoonist by night. He is the creator of the wildly popular Web comic Lunarbaboon. Chris lives in Toronto with his wife and two kids.
Lunarbaboon chronicles the daily struggles of a 30 something father dealing with depression, anxiety, and raising a family. It is a tribute to the bond between father and child, as well as husband and wife. The comic is meant to be read by mature adults who have playful imaginations and don’t take life too seriously.
The MoCCA Arts Festival is a 2-day multimedia event, Manhattan’s largest independent comics, cartoon and animation festival, drawing over 7,000 attendees each year. With 400 exhibiting artists displaying their work, award-winning honorees speaking about their careers and artistic processes and other featured artists conducting workshops, lectures and film screenings.
Organized by The Society of Illustrators whose mission is to serve as Manhattan’s singular cultural institution promoting all genres of illustration through exhibitions, programs and art education.
