I'll happily be a part of Comic Con 2014 with a new book: Oodles of Doodles - Vol.02 and being a part of the "Disney Master Instructor's" panel on Sunday, for which I was newly minted a Disney Master Instructor. If you're at the show, please stop by and say hello and the panel will be well worth it as we're all excited to share the industry knowledge and insight into some of the most exclusive teaching practices of the Animation Studios, from Disney to Dreamworks and beyond.
I'll be happily attending Comic Con again this year with a BRAND NEW BOOK:
Oodles of Doodles - Vol. 02: A Design Exclusive (R.O.B.O.T.s)
On top of that I've recently been named a DISNEY MASTER INSTRUCTOR, which is embarrassing, but I'll be at the show speaking on a panel - Disney Master Educators on Sunday at 1:45 P.M. if anyone is interested. It's going to be a GREAT show!
It's been pretty crazy around here in the last few months. I just wrapped on a show I was working on just in time for COMIC CON 2014, so hopefully afterwards I'll get a little sleep....but not likely. Which is a good thing. I've been hiking quite a bit on the weekends to get a little break and have been finding new "animal friend's" along the way to break up the day.
As an artist, I've learned a lot over the years from a great many talented people. None more than the superbly talented Karl Gnass: a mentor, friend and drawing buddy over many years. A true MASTER of his craft....worthy of such a grand title, truly. He is one of the most intelligent and purposeful creative spirtis I have been lucky enough to meet along my own artistic journey.
Check him out if you don't already know, (and even if you do), be amazed again @ www.spiritofthepose.com and gaze in wonder at his amazing new book - "Spirit and Force in Figure Drawing!"
I was very humbled and lucky to be bequeathed a DISNEY MASTER INSTRUCTOR a few weeks ago and then to be a part of a panel discussing the heritage and teaching styles I use along with Karl Gnass, Dan Cooper and Bob Kato at the Studio. It really was a treat and I was honored and very happy that Susan Karlin asked me to be a part of the show in addition to being at a booth for Wonder Con 2014!
