Though it's not official yet (meaning, not yet shown on the SCAD scholarships site) we've been notified that the Mike Wieringo Scholarship is now $3,000 annually! We're very excited. Thanks to everyone who has donated, purchased something or otherwise contributed. This is all because of your efforts. We're looking forward to getting the total even higher in years to come.

Eryk and Nicky at the Baltimore Comic-Con

We'd like to thank Marc Nathan, Brad Tree and all the generous folks at the Baltimore Comic-Con for their continued support and unparalleled hospitality this past weekend. This year, they not only donated space for us to set up a booth for The Mike Wieringo Scholarship Fund, they also made room for our two most recent scholarship recipients, Nicky Soh and Eryk Donovan (above). Nicky and Eryk were the main attraction at the booth, drawing crowds all weekend, including Eryk's proud parents.

Nicky's and Eryk's work was also included in the first Baltimore Comic-Con Annual which featured interpretations of Frank Cho's LIBERTY MEADOWS characters by such comic industry luminaries as Jose Luis Garcia Lopez and Mark Schulz.

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the fund with purchases and donations. The fund continues to grow every year because of you.

Thursday, August 23, 2012

The Mike Wieringo Scholarship Fund will have a booth at this year's Baltimore Comic-con on September 8th and 9th, 2012. We will be raising money for the fund through donations and the sale of Mike's original artwork, prints and sketchbooks.

We are also very excited to announce that 'Ringo Scholarship recipients Nicky Soh and Eryk Donovan will be appearing as show guests. They will be available for sketches and answering questions about their experiences as 'Ringo Scholarship recipients.

We will also be debuting 'Ringo! T-shirts that will be sold to raise money for the fund. Shirts will be available in sizes M, L, XL and 2XL. Supplies are very limited so get yours early. Shirts are $12.00 (USD) each.

We hope to see you there!
