Had a fantastic week in San Diego, attending Comic Con for the very first time. It was a thrill to see my work displayed at the massive Warner Bros. booth on the show floor. They featured all the art from the exhibit on the walls of their gigantic set-up. My image even flashed across the many video screens they had up displaying all the different franchises they were featuring. As part of The Big Bang Theory artist series, we were invited to attend the very cool Warner Bros. party atop San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel. This was an invitation-only event celebrating WB Television and 75 years of DC Comics. Lots of industry folks and celebrities were on hand and we even got to shake hands with a few of them. Said hello to Kevin Bacon (The Following), Topher Grace (That 70’s Show), Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight), Micheal Emerson (Person of Interest and LOST), Maggie Q (Nikita) and the Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill. Took a photo with Supernatural‘s Jared Padalecki and Paul Wesley of The Vampire Diaries. We were star struck to say the least. My thanks to the great folks at Warner Bros. for inviting me to participate in this art show and including us in the big soiree.

My thanks to Huckleberry for selling prints from the show. Got to spend some time with the super-talented Martin Hsu who also has a fantastic piece on display. Thank you to everyone who came by to say hi and purchase a print. I hope to know more about the availability of these prints now that Comic Con has ended. I’ll post more about here once I know if and when it will be available online.

Good Vs. Evil At The WonderGround Gallery

The powers of good and evil have taken over the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District, Disneyland® Resort. I was so excited to return to the gallery on Saturday (Dec 15) for the opening of this brand new show. It’s always a blast to be a part of the festivities. It’s inspiring, humbling and exciting to meet the many Disney fans who come out to these event. They are always fun to talk to and so enthusiastic about the artwork.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate their kind words and generosity. My sincere thanks to everyone who came out to the show to say hello. And a special shout-out to the great folks who purchased my Pinocchio (or “Pokeynose”) giclee.

The other great part of these gatherings is the chance to mingle with some fantastic artists. I’ve admired many of these talents for some time and it’s so great to stand beside them for this show. It’s always inspiring to hear their stories and experiences. So great to see Noah, Michelle Romo, Martin Hsu and Sean Chao once again. Thrilled that I finally got to meet Miss Mindy, Stephanie Buscema, Kristin Tercek, Ming Ong and Jackie Huang.

As always, the great folks at Disney made this a day to remember. Thanks to everyone who makes these events and this Gallery possible. That includes the wonderful staff at the gallery. Your endless energy and excitement for the art is such a big part of the WonderGround experience and I thank you for your efforts. Also, a shout-out to the Disneyland Ambassadors who are just so fun to talk to. I am honored to be a part of this gallery and so thankful for the experience.

There are some really fantastic pieces and merchandise in this new show. If you’re in the area, please stop by and check it out.
