On Saturday, Larry Blake was at the second Ratha Con, Athens' annual pop-culture convention, and his appearance landed him on the front page of today's Athens News. The convention took place this weekend, on May 11, 2013, in the gymnasium at the Athens Community Center. As always, Larry had his original art and hand-colored prints available for purchase. In the front-page photo of The Athens News, Larry is surrounded by some of his work, including drawings of The Ramones, The Runaways, and Gene Simmons of KISS. Larry also had drawings of everyone's favorite superheroes and TV stars. The photo was taken by Kate Munsch, and the accompanying article, "For One Day, Aliens, Trolls, Zombies Take Over A-Town," is by Cotrell Loftin. (The headline on the front page and on the web version of the article is "Ratha Con Suspends Local Space-Time Continuum.") You can see Larry's picture and read about the convention by clicking here.
