ONYXCON is a 501c3 Non-Profit for creative life enrichment, celebrating the impact, contributions, and presence of diverse representation in the Popular Arts (Comic books, film, gaming, speculative fiction, cosplay, and more!) . We began our journey in 2009 at The SW Arts Center in our home of Atlanta, GA. ONYXCON focuses on edutainment in our approach to the Arts and multipurpose life enrichment. We have an ever growing presence in social media especially on Instagram @ONYXCON that allows us to reach a global audience and curate a vast array of diverse Pop Arts representation. We took a direct hit with COVID-19 in not being able to do our two annual conventions that give artist vending opportunities from all over the nation and world. At ONYXCON the fans and creators meet and sell/present diverse products, we have contest, educational panels, live music and dance performances, and more. With everything being online we focus on our content especially ONYXCON Exclusives - interviews using Zoom, Skype, and IGTV. Some of our guest have been the likes of Turtel Onli (Founder of The Black Age of Comics concept), Neville Page (legendary Hollywood concept artist on Star Trek, Avatar, and Tron), Toni Taylor (Heavy Metal Magazine Fantasy Illustrator), and many more. We also have an ONYXCON Film Festival, and the ONYXCON FISHING TOURNAMENT which was created via our outdoor recreation subsidiary, The OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE WORLDWIDE. This annual tournament is always live online via Instagram. Anglers using hashtag #ONYXCONFishingTournament are eligible for prizes of comics, apparel, art prints, and more. It is all species, all waters, and all tackle as we encourage anglers to stay active in the pandemic and safely enjoy the great outdoors. We say the outdoors keep us in touch as a part of nature and promotes great ART with unfathomable inspiration! We have many plans for 2021 and into the future but we need help to reach those goals. We want to put Atlanta area film makers back to work again on indie film projects to be original content on our YouTube ONYXCON Atlanta and other outlets. We want to do global ONYXCON Fishing Tournament Tours where we juxtapose fishing with interviews of legendary pop arts stars. One such main project is a journey to Brazil planned for November 2021! Our star cast for this Peacock Bass and other native species journey includes actor RICK WORTHY ( The Magicians, The Man in the High Castle, Star Trek, StarGate, and more)! We also have plans to produces original films- features/ shorts/series for our ONYXCON Channel on Youtube. This along with online youth Arts programming with skilled artist in our network and many other workshops and interviews that will sustain ONYXCON as we remain online indefinitely.
