So... I'm back from Comic-con, and over the "Comic-con Plague." Apparently, there was a wonderful virus drifting around infecting people, and I was lucky enough to catch it. Yippee! Wouldn't be a complete excursion to Comic-con without picking up a few deadly germs :)
Again, some colleagues and I from work formed "THE BUNKER: The Art Dept. of South Park," to reach out, meet fans, and sell a few sketchbooks at a booth courtesy of Bernard Chang and his BLVD crew. (Thanks again, Bernard!!) It was a blast to meet everyone, especially the fans! Everyone was totally awesome and sweet! We didn't get one, "Family Guy is a waaaaaay better show!" from anyone! South Park fans are AWESOME!!!
So, here's a few photos from the trip:
|MYSTERION!!! This guy was the sweetest!!! There was also a girl dressed like Mysterion, who we called "Mysteriana." There's pictures of her on our Tumblr: http://thespbunker.tumblr.com/|

So, Comic-con = Success. Yay!
Now that I'm back home, I'm working on my storyboard skills by taking a class with Jay Oliva, who is the most energetic teacher I've ever had. He's incredibly talented. I've been painting a lot lately, too. Here's a sneak peek of something I've started working on:
