Alex Polinsky is a man of many talents and after reveling in the success of Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (he voices the character Control Freak) and spreading his message of character creation at Burning Man, Alex Polinsky is now combining the religion he founded with his other love: Comic Con.
Avatarism is Polinsky’s creation and it’s all about redefining your personal identity by inventing an avatar that you create and control. It’s a role-playing game founded by Polinsky, Dan Gordon-Levitt “Burning Dan” (also Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s older brother) and The Teafaerie that has amassed a coast-to-coast following and spreading worldwide.
Polinsky announced via Twitter that not only will he be joining a celebrity panel at this year’s Ancient City Con, but he’ll also host an Avatarism workshop for fans who want to delve deeper into their own characters and play Polinsky’s real-world role-playing game.
Speaking of Avatarism while on the way to Burning Man, Alex Polinsky shared the following on Twitter.
“The feeling of solitude and possibility is a feature at
#burningman. The inherent permission to embody your secret identity hangs in the air here. The dust conceals you and gives you a veil of psychic shelter making it easier to create yourself… as you never have before. “
Also attending Ancient City Con is Polinsky’s childhood friend and fellow voice-over artist Jason Marsden (A Goofy Movie, Duck Tales, Eerie Indiana), Billy West (Futurama, The Ren and Stimpy Show, Space Jam), Janeshia Adams-Ginyard (Black Panther), and many more.
See you in Florida this weekend for @AncientCityCon I’ll be signing autographs and pictures, including #TeenTitansGoMovie stuff. I’ll also be giving the first #Avatarism lecture at a con on Saturday evening.??❤️?☘️??✨? pic.twitter.com/OgVFqz0Fke
