My pieces for the Meatball Head/Sailor Moon gallery show at Meltdown Comics, this Saturday!I really wanted to make a larger piece that included all the scouts, but just didn’t have time.Makoto “Cooking with Lightning” is in a 5x7 frame, “Mini Moon Me” is in a 9x12.It’s going to be a great show!
This piece by my secret lover @perinm is so glorious that I shit my pants. You can see it and much more great artwork at my Sailor Moon #MeatballHead art show, next Saturday the 16th at @MeltdownComics. 💖🌙
So its nice Cartoon Brew mentioned Star, but I am a little disappointed the article didn’t focus on the show at all. http://www.cartoonbrew.com/tv/disney-tries-something-new-with-star-vs-the-forces-of-evil-a-woman-creator-102477.html We were talking about it at lunch today, by we I mean 10 female creatives currently working on Star and one male creative, Matt. So we decided to take this joke picture. Male industry huh?
Haha : )
Gotta love how out of touch Cartoon Brew is with this industry, claiming how few female creatives there are. So here are my good friends Daron and Cheyenne, and the Star crew, posting their response to that.
TA-DA! Here’s the full color, finished Pig Goat Banana Cricket poster we’ll be signing in the Nick booth down at San Diego Comic-Con!
J. Ryan and Dave Cooper will start signing at 11:45am PST, shortly after the New Animated Comedies panel ends. Come and get your poster if you can!
Unfortunately no, save for a couple of artist pieces that are being used for promotional material, most of the artwork in this show will not be shared online until after the gallery. We’re keeping this exclusive and local to LA!
BUT, my best advice is either to come in Thursday or Friday while we’re back there hanging artwork and see if anything catches your eye, or to just show up to the opening gallery night promptly at 7pm.
All ages are welcomed to the gallery opening night! But if you’re under 21, you best get your hand stamped at the door ‘cuz no booze for you!
SDCC ‘14 was a crowded, obnoxious, alarmingly smelly, overwhelming mess. But thanks to hanging out with tons of my wonderful friends, a great hotel location, getting to meet some personal heroes of mine, and a few truly amazing industry after-parties, I’d say this was probably my best Comic-Con yet. Great weekend!! Here’s the batch of weekend photos I took, if you feel like looking at them!
About 2 years ago when I first started planning art show curating, one theme in particular was at the top of my list. And now it’s finally happening!!
