Hello all! Well I got back from amazing San Francisco a week ago but in a few days I am off again, this time to visit my parents in Germany. We will also be taking a short trip to France.
San Francisco was awesome and so was Azkatraz 2009!! Met up with so many friends and fellow artists and we had a marvelous time. Since the convention is now over I am allowed to post the images I made for the programming book.
The panel went well! I think we were pretty informative. We only had 50 minutes and that’s not much time for 4 people to speak. After we finished, a woman approached us about illustration rights and it turned out she works with Brad Holland over at the Illustrators’ Partnership. While at SVA, my class got to go to Holland’s studio, which was pretty cool. Anyway, I thought it was amusing that she was at a Harry Potter convention (we are everywhere!) and even went to an art panel! (: Unfortunately she gave her information to someone else in the panel so I have no idea who she is…
Here I am in the foreground at my friend’s “Draw Your Own Snape” panel. Awesome idea!
I arrived in SF a few days early so that I could sightsee before all the convention goodness started. I saw quite a lot: Musee Mecanique (awesome antique still-working arcade machines), the SS Pampanito (I like military history), sea lions, Coit Tower, the SFMoMA, Alcatraz night tour, Muir Woods, various quintessential SF neighborhoods, and I even went horseback riding on Ocean Beach. The weather was gorgeous, but then it would get windy and foggy and so so cold. Overall I enjoyed the trip, but I was glad to be back in NYC. I am definitely an East Coast girl!
