We are aware that the ever-growing list of events that need to cancel or postpone is having a negative impact on artists and vendors. For many, conventions are their main source of income. As you may have seen on our various social media profiles, we want to utilize our platform to make a space for the displaced artists.
With the rise of COVID-19, we are calling on all fans, creators and event runners to help each other out in this time of need. Beginning today, we will be featuring artists that have been impacted by these cancellations with the hashtag #CreatorVirus on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. This page will feature all vetted events and displaced artists reported to us.
Unlike the Corona Virus, we want the #CreatorVirus to spread. Please help us spread the word by sharing from our social media pages, or share your own artist(s) using the hashtag.
Everyone who purchases an item from a featured* or otherwise displaced artist, through April 15th, will automatically be entered to win a prize, ranging from Steam codes, signed art, and maybe event a 2D Con VIP registration or two. Just share with us what you have purchased on our Facebook or Twitter.
Events that have been impacted can send us a list of the artists that were scheduled to attend and we will feature both the event and the artists on this page.
Want to help but don’t see anything you’d like to purchase? Each featured artist group will be up for 24 hours. 100% of money donated via venmo – @CreatorVirus during that 24 hour block will be split evenly between the featured artists in the group.
Please Note: We will be vetting ALL artist and event submissions, we are currently only accepting artists from the United States.
* Featured artists will be worth 2 entries into our drawing. There will be drawings periodically during the time that we are featuring artists. If you win your existing entries will go away but new purchases after winning can put you back into the competition. This is supposed to be fun lets not take it too seriously!
