Cristina Vargas Art Piece was submitted to "Black Age XVIII " High Rise projects
 Comparison between C2E2 and "Black Age XVIII "
When the officers of the graphic novel club first arrived into the Comic Con community I was a bit overwhelmed by all those awesome cosplayers and amazing artists. 

Not only was I able to interact with many interesting people that have common likes like me, but also I was able to witness hundreds people of all ages coming together and acting like themselves while enjoying Comic Con. 

In contrast to the exhibition named Black Age of Comic Convention, where I felt calmer and intimate with a small amount of talent people. While exhibiting my art I felt like I had a better chance to interact more with a less crowded location. 

I was able to actually finish to whole exhibition unlike Comic Con where It was easy to get lost yet had a lot more view such as videos, panels, art, games, collectable toys, and much more.

-The moment I stepped into the art area of C2E2 was amazing. My experience at C2E2

was an experience that I have never had. There were many great artists in the Artist Alley

along with people who were cosplaying. Compared from a big Artist Alley to a small Artist

exhibition that I attended was still the same feeling. The Black Age XVII exhibition was still

great. Both of these exhibitions contain great artists that had an amazing amount of

artwork displayed. The only difference is the size of the area.

Other than the size, the experience I had with these two locations was a new way for me to

interpret the Art world.
