Latest sketches for KPCC's Off-Ramp titled "Sketchbook: Elvis Costello at the Hollywood Bowl" is up. Full article and all the sketches here: http://www.scpr.org/programs/offramp/2014/09/11/39301/sketchbook-elvis-costello-at-the-hollywood-bowl/

 

I have a workshop scheduled in San Pedro, California for October 5th at Angels Gate Cultural Center. This will be four day intensive "Illustrating for Kids" class. This will cover children's books as well as anything related to the kids market. This is gonna be all traditional media and I'm really looking forward to it. It can also benefit illustrators in general as well as concept or character designers.

I'm really excited about this location. It's on the bluffs overlooking the ocean, has outdoor tables under the trees and great rooms. It's a seriously great spot. Contact me for registration info. I'm doing this one on short notice so I have to get a minimum head count soon.

 

I'll be doing a three day fast sketch workshop at the Riverside Art Museum. It will be on consecutive Sundays. September 14th, 21st and 28th. They have great facilities and it's right in downtown Riverside, a perfect sketch area. Here is their link:
