Atlanta here I come … a bit too late for the Olympics … but still in time to eat the famous Georgia peaches and meet the Panda that has won the hearts of the folks in Atlanta.
Seriously, I have been invited as a special guest for Anime Weekend Atlanta 14. It is a huge Japanese Anime con taking place at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel and Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia. And they seriously have a panda in their zoo.
I’ll be in the Dealer’s Room, table 540. On Friday night at 6 pm I’m doing a workshop on how to draw comic books and then on Saturday at 6 pm I’ll be talking and taking questions during a panel session.
And what’s up with Pandas and Peaches? It’s the theme of the official t-shirt for the convention, which I had SO MUCH FUN coming up with! I liked it so much and made so many variants that I think I feel a series coming on …. here’s a sneak peak at some of the sketches and coloured images:
And my friend Glynis from Punchbrand is also going to be there with some Crazy AWA Hats! Punchbrand made my artist series hats too with the cute Panda ears, which will of course be there for sale. So it all comes back to Pandas! Good thing they’re so cute!
I can’t wait to make some new fans, and be bedazzled at this Anime Convention! Come out if you can!!
