Scared? Nope. But I had plenty of laughs. I drove through the night and early morning to leave San Diego, after a week long engagement at LegoLand, California. So maybe, i looked a little dead. But nothing livens my life party than drawing caricatures. I feel solid about every piece I created throughout the night. Some were hilariously funny to me. Gross, gore, and lots of blood. Don't judge me, I just have a wild imagination and really enjoy the horror genre.
If I missed you, you can order an Undead artpiece here.
No, the West Wind Sacramento Drive Ins did not show the NWA biopic. But the music of DJ Rob was reflecting the great hiphop scene. I met people from all over the Central Valley. I especially appreciate the folks who are becoming a regular part of my caricature scribble portfolio. Thanks to Maddy and her dad for welcoming into their cartoon home. Until we meet again.
It was another great event, more fans came out than last year. Jagged Lines of Imagination was able to again lead the Kids Drawing Zone. I had the opportunity to sit with so many artists of various ages, give them encouragement in their creative pursuits, and share my intense passion for the graphic arts medium.
I did lead a panel that was amazingly well attended. I believe it was a full house, or maybe I just imagined it that way. For all those who joined me, we continued a series that I began a few years back. We are developing a group developed comic. Now we are looking forward to writing shorts based on these characters. More details to come.
I want to give a special thank you to the Admiral for providing media and the Bey Max donation. A great teaser to those who came to participate. How cool are Xavier and Ashley for volunteering to become victims in the comic? Thanks to Kristen and David, and the JLI crew for all their help. Those amazing Stockton-Con volunteers in their yellow shirts. Oh, and my kids, Nicolas and Trinity, for working with me, and not being embarrassed that their dad is totally insane!
Author Trina Bradford Phillips has contracted JAGuerzon to illustrate her next book, A Lil Bug Named Flu. This is TBP Publishing's second foray into children's books, after the release of Twas The Night Before Christ. We look forward to sharing the books process, and give production snapshots for a book that is sure to be a must in every classroom. Pre-orders for A Lil Bug Named Flu are being taken at the TBP Publishing website.
Now I'm working on long sheets to improve my sketch speed. I'm at about 2 minutes a face or less with just line work. They are fun, I even had a family ask for two separate art pieces. I was able to draw them in two different styles.
Thanks Cliff for the fun commission with the Ukulele, and little yellow guy.
I was a bit afraid of the dark as a little guy. That was until my Mom introduced me to Fangoria. Have you ever seen it at the newstand? Well, I remember looking through them, and being disgusted. Yet it reminded me that the movies were just makeup and ketchup packets.
The world is a scary place. Get lost in a good book, or magazine.
