Wow! I just returned from my trip to the Netherlands, spending much time drawing with many of European’s finest artists. I attended a minicon, called CU 2008 in the town of Oosterbeeck and later traveled to Amsterdam where I stayed for a tour on my last day.
I surprisingly won 3rd place for Best Cartoon Style. There were so many great and talented artists and I learned very much by watching, listening, and practice, practice, practice! Since I tend to be more of a digital artist, I feel I need to take the time to practice with my live “color” media, so I decided to take a step and start producing more live studio drawings (on paper) within my future.
My wall (window) of art was designed with color copics/colored pitt pens and colored pencils.
Here are many photos of many friends, my art display and drawings. Also, I finally had the pleasure of meeting Marion at the Hotel Dreyeroord, when she stopped by for a visit with her son and daughter! She is an amazingly talented artist!
Mick did a fantastic Photoshop rendition of me! Thanks Mick!
What a great and adventurous experience! I had so much fun and laughter with EVERYONE!
I will post more photos, hopefully closer and clear photos, later this evening!
