Finally I'm able to post about the 2006 National Caricaturist Network convention held recently here in Orlando. The con was a huge success, with the largest artist turnout ever. The guest speaker this year was David O'Keefe www.davidokeefe.com . Inspired by his work, I sculpted a 3-D piece for my studio submission this year.
I got to talk extensively with David (he's a great guy), and hope some of his immense talent and wisdom will rub off on me.
This is my wall space.
I only ended up doing 4 pictures, a new low for me. Good news is, I still won an award Best Cartoon Style, Second Place. Here's me with newcomer Jessica Plummer (who had a rockin' sketchbook) and Spumco artist Marlo Meekins. I'm the dumpy one in the middle. Needless to say, I'm all pumped up for 2007's convention, which will be in Reno the first week of October. My plan is to have some Black Cat Bone books to sell there and a very unique studio piece that I'm already planning...Stay tuned!
