Coming to an Office Depot near YOU!

Maybe I should order a deli sandwich for lunch?! This is the “romantic” part of extensive travel! After 40 years of travels I’ve developed a real talent for finding unique places to set up and work, Office Depots are always a GREAT place for a quiet desk. The trouble is trying to choose which one and which chair from the 12 on display! 😳

Hope to see you at ACE Comic Con this weekend at Chicago’s Navy Pier….or at an Office Depot near YOU!

Chicago!!!

I’m in Chicago! Wahooooo! ACE Comic Con starts tomorrow! I’ll be in Artist Alley autographing my art, and on SATURDAY 1:00-1:45 on the second stage presenting “You Can Draw In 30-Minutes!” Come Draw In 3-D with ME?! Thanks Alex Rae and Thor and the ACE team!

East Coast FUN!!!

I tell people that 90% of my teaching career of presenting assemblies at 7,427 schools around the world is spent…..sitting under a basketball hoop! Today was no exception🤪

I so ENJOYED the students and staff at Merritt Memorial School in New Jersey! What a perfect way to finish off 10 days of events on the East Coast!

I started with 3 days with 500 of my tribe of fellow art teachers at the New Jersey Art Educators Conference! Then I drove to Bronxville New York to present my school programs to the artistic geniuses at St. Joseph School. The following day I drove through Lincoln Tunnel into Manhattan at 6:00am (a traffic NIGHTMARE), to spend an hour trying to find parking ($70 for the day😳), to get in to New York Comic Con early enough to set up. Some cool fans told me not to be crazy stressed and to park across the river and ferry in, what a fantastic tip! Turned my commutes into little boat ride adventures with a relaxing cup of coffee, sitting with a few hundred Batman’s, wonderwoman, and other assorted cosplayers 🤪

Now I’m off to Newark airport where Robert Neustadt Lois Bernstein Neustadt are picking me up for my week long visit at their house while I participate at Chicago ACE Comic Con!

Maybe I’ll see you at the Comic Con on Navy Pier?

This wonderful watercolor portrait of My son Mario and I was painted by an amazing student artist Jennifer Martinez. I met her and her family at Chicago Comic Con, she is so BRILLIANT. I’m so impressed how hard she works in developing her natural talent! If you like her work below, Commission a piece from her, help her in her creative journey!

Keystone!!!

After 3 exhausting fulfilling days at Keystone Comic Con, my new BFCPF (Bestest Friend Comic Pal Forever! Lol) Dan Fraga Basically he sat at his artist table next to mine for 9 hours a day for 3 days, (and I’m VERY loud, and VERY over the top enthusiastic with EVERYONE walking in front of my table) co-presented 2 family workshop panels, and still had the fortitude to have dinner each night with me. Dan is hilarious irreverent and so darn polite to every service individual!

On Saturday Genese Elisabeth Davis and Jack Moore and Patricia moore co-hosted a wonder NASA PANEL: “Visualizing the Unimaginable!”
