CRRL-Con returns to library, artist Steve Ogden featured speaker
Fredericksburg, Virginia, May 8, 2018 - CRRL-Con, Central Rappahannock Regional Library's comic convention, returns to Howell Branch (formerly England Run) for the fourth year on Saturday, May 19, 1:00-4:00 p.m. Unleash your inner superhero while enjoying an afternoon featuring cosplay, a costume contest, free comics, artists, crafts, gaming, a balloon artist, face painting, photo and video booth, films, and much more! All ages are welcome. 
Artist, animator, and writer Steve Ogden will be the featured guest speaker from 2:00-3:00 p.m. He will share insights on making it as an artist in the game industry and as a comic writer. Steve will also be signing copies of his books.

Steve Ogden has been a professional artist, animator, and writer for almost 40 years. He’s worked for a variety of game companies, including Cyan (maker of the 1990s hits Myst and Riven) and currently works for Sid Meier’s Firaxis ( Civilization, Railroads, and X-COM) just north of Baltimore. He is the creator of several comics: Croaker’s Gorge; the award-winning graphic novel Moon Town; his most recent, Madigan’s Guide to Acting Human; and Magnificatz, which is syndicated through Universal/Andrews & McMeel. 

He also wrote Headstones and Monuments, which he terms “a slightly bone-chilling collection of short stories”—tales from a haunted childhood—based on his experiences growing up in a haunted 200-year-old house in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
