Ok! So San Diego is finally upon us!! Huzzah.

I'm heading down tomorrow from LA, and am looking forward to spending a large chunk of Thursday afternoon exploring the Indie booths and Artists' Alley. I've also FINALLY thrown together a *rough* schedule of panels I'm hoping to attend over Friday and Saturday (an event in itself).

Friday and Saturday's programme for me will be as follows:


11-12 - How-to with Chuk Wojtkiewicz: pencilled for DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, now lead concept
artist at Blur Studios here in LA.
12-1 - Masterclass with Mike Mignola: Expressionistic Atmoshperes
2.30-3.30 - Focus Features: 9 (Steve Acker, Tim Burton, Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly)
6.30-7.30 - Entertainment Weekly: James Cameron and Peter Jackson


10-11 - How to Get a Job in Video Games
12-1 - Masterclass with Dave Gibbons: The Heroic Figure
1-2 - Masterclass with Jeff Smith: The Art of the Panel
2-3 - Drawing Lessons From Great Masters: Classic principles from great artists of early
20th Century comics and illustration.
4-5 - Paramount: Iron Man 2 (Robert Downey Jr. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett
Johanssen, Mickey Rourke, Jon Favreau and Samuel L. Blackson.
6-7 - Digital Colour Styles and FX with Brian Miller

Sweet, right? A number of these involve bringing a sketchbook, so hopefully I'll have some sketches and samples to report back with next week!!!

See ya then!

  1. That sounds fantastic. I would love to go to any number of those panels. The Dave Gibbons and Mike Mignola one sound particularly awesome.
