Back in late May. Philly Comic Con was amazing! To sum it up I got to see Beatlejuice, Lou Ferigno, and The Iron Sheik and watched ridiculously absurd Light-Saber war. To top it all off I met my new Friends Bobby Chiu & Kei Acedera. I talked Bobby’s ear off about the Digital Painting class, Caricature and his work. Very awesome time! I was so excited and “Idol” struck that I fumbled through most sentences. This in is not unusual if you know me. I couldn’t stop pestering him with questions. The best part after geeking out was getting to see his personal sketchbook, signed print and personal samurai sketch. Bobby and Kei were exceptionally nice and could not have been more inviting. They are truly tremendous role models and very down to earth.
June: Went to Fleisher Art memorial for a sweet figure drawing class called “ Dr. Sketchy”.
Every third Friday you bring your sketchbook, and draw cabaret models dressed in elaborate pinup costume with props. Plus there is a DJ and Drinks! Drink and Draw for cheap!
August: The month of August was great. My friend Jay Secoda, a talented balloon artist, invited me to do Caricatures & Entertain an amazing party at The Barwicki House. The Barwicki's are some fantastic folks so I wanted to thank them for giving a new guy at Caricature an encouraging reception to the scene. Here is some work from that party…
- (shameless plug) to hire for your next Party or Caricature contact -
…Since then I have taken on a few projects that I will be posting shortly that I am really excited about. Until then here are more from the subway sketches and recent work. More to come!
