Yesterday, I went to the Steampunk and Robots opening reception at Artworks in Kenosha. Considering I had a piece in the show, I took a couple of pictures of the event. They are below.
On January 11th, I taught a class over at Bucketworks in Milwaukee. It was a class on how to create cartoon characters. It was pretty much an easy-going class, considering I’m not like a professor or anything. I went over some of the basics of creating a cartoon character, as well as ways to create atmosphere for the character. Here are some of the drawings I made for the class:
Although only two people showed up, they seemed to have a pretty good time. I’m hoping next time will be even better. I might host another class within a month or so, so keep an eye on this page for news about that.
Just wanted to inform you all that the class I’m teaching on how to make cartoon characters is coming up very soon on the 11th. If you want to sign up for it, click here. There is not a whole lot of time left. In the meantime for some other content, I’ve uploaded a new image to the Miscellaneous section of the Portfolio tab, plus these pictures I took last Friday at an art show at the Racine Arts Council.
Hey there, anyone looking at this. I’m hosting a class on how to create a cartoon character. It’s $20 per person, and it’s limited to 10 people, so check out the link below for more info.
I attended the Monster 2012 show at Artworks in Kenosha. I have two things up there, and it is going on until the 31st of this month, so if you want to see my stuff, now’s a good time to go see them. Anyway, in addition to the art show, there was a puppet show going on in the basement, much of the material comedy, and Artworks had their traditional “big custom-made Halloween cake”. Not only that, but I sold two copies of my “Drannik & Lizzep” comic book that I have on display there, so I also made an eight dollar profit. Here are a couple of photos from the event.
I went to the Drink & Draw October event at Frank’s Power Plant in Milwaukee on October 12th. Because it is primarily a drawing event, I’ve dedicated the rest of this post to the things I drew there. Enjoy.
Last weekend, I went to the Kenosha Festival of Cartooning. Unlike last year, most of the presentations were at the Kenosha Public Museum, but this year was extra special, as one of my favorite cartoonists made an appearance: Stephan Pastis of “Pearls Before Swine” fame. I gave him a copy of “Drannik & Lizzep” while I was there. Whether he’d be into the comic or not is another story. Anyway, here are a couple of photos from different events that took place:
Last Saturday was the first Artwalk I had been some sort of part of since I took a trip to Los Angeles back in July. Unlike that Artwalk, however, this one didn’t turn into a riot.
In all seriousness, though, I had a good time at the event, despite only selling one comic and not staying the whole time due to weather. It was very cool and windy because it was right next to the just-completed Wisconsin Ave. bridge, and later on it started to rain. Despite this, I made my presence known, and I got a few photos from the event as well.
I’m going to have a table at this event, selling my comics, making some sketches, and just chatting up everyone. Feel free to take a look at the details provided below.
