Ali Cantarella at C2E2 2019

Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) returns April 24-26 at McCormick Place. I'll be there "On the Beat" all weekend.
One of the artists I'll be seeking out is Ali Cantarella. I have followed Ali's work for many years. She definitely is one of my favorite artists. She even designed a Johngy shirt for me and I loved it.
Her art isn't limited to my silly requests though. It also isn't limited to pet portraits (although she is awesome at those, too). Lately, she has been working all over Chicago, making the city more beautiful one wall or one building at a time with her murals.
It's pretty cool watching Ali create her murals on her social media videos. Then seeing them in person is even better. I have sought out many to see, but a  few times, I accidentally found myself right by one. I think those times are actually more fun. "Hey that's Ali's work!"
She really is as cool as her art and I encourage everyone to check her work and see for themseles. I also encourage all to come to C2E2 2024 and fins both of us.
Go to for more info on Ali. Also follow her on social media. She is a blast there. Go to for all the info and updates on C2E2 2024.
