Doug was a guest at the first C2E2 (2010) as well as in 2014 and this year; this is coordinated through Mike Negin, Artist Alley and Creator Coordinator/ReedPOP. In addition to this responsibility, he also organizes the annual C2E2 charity auction, which raised $18,230.00 this year to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Typically we stay in contact with Mike by email so it was a nice surprise when he stopped by Artist Alley Saturday afternoon to say hello.
Artist Alley is also a popular area for cosplayers; Mike couldn't resist a photo op with friendly fowl from Malmey Studios, which has been building high quality movie props and custom-made costumes since 2010.
