High End Market Place sponsors inaugural I Like Comic Con event at the Clark County Event Center February 10th & 11th
We love being part of a thriving, fun, and welcoming community on Broadway in downtown Vancouver, WA. So when our friends from I Like Comics asked us to be part of the very first I Like Comic Con event happening just north of Vancouver in Ridgefield at the Clark County event center, we said YES. We are honored to sponsor this event with Dark Horse Comics and Loowit Brewing co.! The guest list includes comic legends, creators and some of the best local writers and illustrators around. Check out the full guest list here. The tickets for the two day event are only $25, so be sure to purchase yours today. Feel free to dress up as your favorite comic book characters, as there will be a cosplay contest on Saturday the 10th! Drop by our booth to say high on February 10th and 11th and feel free to ask any questions about our dispensary, the cannabis products we sell, and the state of the recreational marijuana and medical marijuana industry here in Washington State!
This type of event has never happened in our area before, and it pushes the limits of what is possible and showcases the amazing things that transpire when a community comes together for a common cause. We are proud to sponsor this event to help nurture and grow the arts scene here in Vancouver and to support our friends at I Like Comics!
Purchase your tickets today at these locations.

Also this month, we’re excited to host JV Ranch for a vendor day at HEMP on February 16th. We’ve partnered with JV Ranch since we opened our doors in January 2015, and JV and the team continue to impress us with their consistent, responsibly produced cannabis products including flower, joints, RSO, hash, and kief. Stay tuned for the time of the event, and we hope you join us!
February Featured artist: Coty Keller
This month, the walls of HEMP feature works by local painter, Coty Keller.
‘The Celestial Seas’, is a cosmic re-imagining of our most alien, yet terrestrial sea creatures. It’s also a reminder that our (one and only) home is an island oasis amongst the in-numerous uninhabitable islands in the unfathomably vast sea of space.
Coty Keller has been moved to paint and draw since the moment he was able to hold his first crayon as a child. With the support and encouragement of his family, this interest grew into a passion. Coty’s been inspired by and has an appreciation for a wide spectrum of artists and art styles. Several of those artists include (but are not limited to) Alex Grey, M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali, Frank Frazetta, and H.R. Giger. He also has a deep admiration for the Renaissance Masters, and in particular, Leonardo da Vinci, whose many contributions to the arts and science Coty’s always found amazing. Coty attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for a Media Arts and Animation degree through their online program for two years. He has however continued to study independently to develop various skills in drawing, painting, and other art forms. Check out more about Coty and his incredible work here.
Cannabis inspires artists of every caliber, and we are beyond excited to have the opportunity to showcase local work by some amazing creators in Clark County and Southwest Washington. If you would like to be a featured artist, or are interested in learning more about our involvement in the arts community in downtown Vancouver, WA, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
