Between all of these events I’ll be wandering around the show. I’m short, but I’m easy to find with neon orange hair and big, librarian glasses. Feel free to talk to me about colors, if you have a portfolio, etc. Also, I will be selling #coloristilluminati enamel pins for 10$ (cash only) at the show. As a reminder– I will not have a table– you will have to find me to purchase one. If you will not be attending SDCC or RCCC then you should totally purchase one online here: http://www.kellyfcolors.com/shop/colorist-illuminati-pin
