Budding artists will be given a chance to share their original and unpublished Marvel-theme artworks to fellow enthusiast and consult featured Marvel artists for some tips as well.

Guests can also look forward to live art demonstrations, Marvel artists creative booths, and a collaboration wall open for everybody to express their art.
