C2E2 & Drawing Dreams 2018

For those of you that didn't win in our C2E2 ticket giveaway, there's still plenty of time to get your tickets.

Thanks to Reed Pop, we'll be back at C2E2 this year, in booth 641. For the 6th year in a row, Chicago Loot Drop will be running "Drawing Dreams"!

Once again, we’re partnering with local artists at C2E2 to bring to life the creative visions of seven very special patients from Comer Children’s Hospital. We’ve asked these children to describe themselves as a superhero: What sort of power(s) would you have? What would you do with those powers? What would your superhero name be?

We took their responses to the following artists, who are creating original artwork depicting the children’s ideas. We'll be taking a sneak peek at the art next week!
