GOING TO ‘KANSAS CITY’ – KANSAS CITY HERE I COME!

BACK ON THE CONVENTION TRAIL AGAIN

During the month of July, I had no shows on my schedule. I’m not sure how that happened but for better or worse, it was a break in the stream of shows I’ve been attending this year.

CASTLES, CARS, CANETE AND PERISCOPE

PERISCOPE IS MY NEW STUDIO MATE

I first heard some rumbling about Periscope from my friend, Dakota. Not sure if it was during Heroes Con or the Florida Supercon? It seems he was the one having a conversation with someone about it.

Anyway, it’s connected with “Twitter” and is a fantastic app for your smartphone!

CASTLES AND CARS

On my way down to the Florida Supercon I received an email and asked if I could take on a job of “vector inking” for another creative at Disney Design Group.

It had some fun stuff in the brief:

Cars – yes, “those” Cars and the castles from both Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL and Walt Disneyland, Anaheim, CA.

Knowing I couldn’t start the job until after the 4 of July, I figured that this job would be lost to another and so I emailed back my schedule.

Turned out it would work and I got the job.
