NO CUT FOR YOU.
Mite bit stressed,... but mostly ready for battle!
I have some preview images from some of my friends, too, so please read this post!
(SIDENOTE: I'll be going to the Kanon performance tomorrow night 6:30 PM at Royal/T (see Kanon in this youtube vid
SHE IS AWESOME.)
I'll have this new sketchbook for sale (24 pages with 15+ new not-see-before drawings .... including several preview images from "Cosplay Ai" my next book due out this spring!) The new sketchbook is LIMITED TO 50 COPIES
---- and as always I'll have copies of Japan Ai
and my previous sketchbooks for sale. If you buy something, I'll do a sketch for you!IMPT. INFO
MY SDCC BOOTH IS G-9
(row 800...go towards the back of the convention center, right across the aisle from Missmonster
). You can see my banner on the right here. :) I'll be at the convention for the entire time (including preview night), but due to the Doctor Who shenanigans on Sunday, you're unlikely to find me much at the booth on Sunday except a couple hours before dealers' room close. Other than Sunday, if you come by and I'm away from the booth, my fellow booth mates can try to txt me to bring me back. I'll do my best. <3
I'll also have some artwork of Felicia in the Udon Darkstalkers Tribute Book
which will be sold at SDCC booth 5112 and online.

Derek has a new Marishi10 book out this year, too! What can I tell you, it's a female ninja comic drawn by a real ninja.
I heard Eric Goldberg (master animator of the Genie and Fantasia 2000's Rhapsody in Blue, etc...) was going to be doing a lot of stuff this year at SDCC and asked if he'd give us some details::
"Thought I would pass along a pre-San Diego Comic Con plug for my various attempts to become the world’s most hard-to-avoid animator. First, I will be part of the panel discussion, hosted by the illustrious Don Hahn and sponsored by AnimationMentor.com, celebrating the teachings and years of inspiration to Disney artists by Walt Stanchfield, whose class handout sheets are now lovingly compiled into a two-volume tome, Drawn to Life: 20 Golden Years of Disney Master Classes. Alongside me on the dais: Glen Keane, Tom Sito, and Ruben Procopio.
Thursday, July 23, Room 32 AB, 3:00 – 4:00 PM (Note the time change from previously published posts)
Then, my new collection of sketchbook cartoons, Enjoy It While You Can, Kid, is debuting at the Con, courtesy of Stuart Ng
, who also happens to be the publisher. (What a coincidence!) I will be shamelessly signing and plugging it, as well as copies of Character Animation Crash Course!, at these times and locations, all a hair’s breadth away from Stuart Ng Books at Booth 5012:
Thursday, July 23, 4:30 – 6:30 PM, Booth 5022, hosted by Creative Talent Network
Saturday, July 25, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Booth 5022, hosted by Creative Talent Network
