I was honored to be asked to be a participant in the Calgary Expo at the end of April 2009 in beautiful downtown Canada. I was asked to submit a piece of artwork that will be auctioned off for charity to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Calgary on the last day of the show. This was my submission.

I will be teaching a NEW class at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Arts (LAAFA) in Van Nuys, Ca. This is a nice opportunity to open up the class and my teachings to the public. The other class I teach at the moment is solely for the Walt Disney employees only. So this is a nice way to let people have access to the teachings of the studios that is open to anyone interested as well as the general public. I will be instructing on Sundays, which was a request that some of my students asked for due to the work week being too hectic. It's a trial run, but if anyone is interested you can contact LAAFA @ 818.708.9232.
http://www.laafa.org/ - (It is listed under the "Sessions" section on the right).
If you are interested, just tell them I sent you over and I am sure they will be nice enough to fill you in on the details and give you the packet of information I supplied them with.

These series of sketches were done as a demo in the Walt Disney Class I teach focused on experimentation with different mediums - in this case experimenting with Pastels as an aide to help add more mood and contrast to costumed gesture drawings and/or development work.
[I will be selling these and many of my originals at my book signing that is being narrowed down to three places at the moment. I will keep everyone informed as soon as I know the final dates and venue(s).]
