Streaming Content

Ink Tank

Ink Tank is an interview show in which artists chat and sketch — LIVE! A host will provide these artists with various prompts, and they’ll chat about their style, decisions, and art as they work. Tune in for a relaxing stream full of conversation and gorgeous drawings. Ink Tank guests throughout the week include Kristopher Meadows and Orlando Arocena.

Artist Interviews

If you want to learn more about amazing artists, look no further than our Art Print Expo interviews. During the segments, we’ll ask questions about the creation process and art style. Plus, get history and highlights from these artists’ impressive careers.

Sideshow’s Art Expo 2022 interviews include:

Bingo

Bingo is a classic game of chance where players have cards with certain numbers and try to get a full row of numbers called by the host. Sideshow’s Bingo is an updated, virtual experience. Show up when we go live for a chance to play and a chance to “Bingo!” your way into some sweet Sideshow Rewards.

Gallery Tour

It’s like a booth tour, but on the walls! Join Sideshow hosts as they tour an extensive gallery full of art prints from all your favorite fandoms. You’ll be able to get detailed info about the art, printing process, the characters represented in the piece, the artist, and even specifications about the specialized custom frames Sideshow uses.


Game Shows

The Sideshow Art Print Expo 2022 game shows include Cobbled Cosplay and Win, Lose, or DIE.

Win, Lose, or DIE

If you like Dungeons and Dragons and horror stories, Win, Lose, or DIE is the game for you! This is a cutthroat choose-your-own-adventure style game that results in somebody — or everybody — going home with all the glory (an awesome prize!) or DYING (losing their shot at the prize). Audience members have to correctly make it through all 10 steps of the game to reach the final step and if you die, you’re out of the running. The last person playing gets an awesome amount of Sideshow Rewards. If every single player dies, the Sideshow Reward pot gets split among all participants.

On Wednesday, Amy Chase will be presenting her original story “You’ve Been Framed.”

If the Win, Lose, or DIE game show sounds fun to you, you can play along live! Look out for an access code and link during the stream. We look forward to playing with you!

Cobbled Cosplay

Are the clothes your favorite part of an art piece? If you’re into costumes, makeup, and watching people stress out over time constraints and fashion faux pas, Cobbled Cosplay is the one for you to watch.

During Cobbled Cosplay, contestants are tasked with recreating a surprise costume in 10 minutes using only household objects and found materials — winner takes home the prize, or in this case, art print, that they are cosplaying as.

We started our Fan Edition episodes with our Fan Week Cobbled Cosplay Supersized Showdown: Fan Episode and couldn’t be happier with the way you geeks turned out to test your costuming prowess. We are always in need of Cobbled Cosplay contestants for future events. Learn how to audition on our blog, or submit your audition tape through this Gleam platform.
