See you at Anime Expo!

Color with me at Anime Expo
I am heading off to Anime Expo this week and I wanted to keep you up to date. If you are going to be at the convention this weekend in L.A., please come visit me. You won't find me in the Copic booth like usual, rather, I will be hanging out in the exciting

COPIC Classroom!!

You can find the Copic Classroom in room 302, at the LA Convention Center. We are open from June 29-July 2nd, during the hours of the vendor hall. You can find the main Copic booth back in the Artist's Alley area.

We are ready for a weekend packed with events. Check out presentations from lots of fabulous people:

Star Wars creature designer and Tales of Amalthea instructor Terryl Whitlatch will talk about principles of creature design, story, concept art, animation & special effects, product & direction with Gilbert Banducci, and will also be signing her book, “Animals Real & Imagined.”

We are pleased to host some talented guest Japanese artists at AX this year. Two of our guests, Kaoppe & Haruka will share their coloring process and professional stories. This is a wonderful insight into the Japanese comic industry, so check it out!

And finally, I will teach classes on Copic basics classes and Comic Ink & Paper techniques. Paper and products will be available for class use, so come and learn how to get the most from your markers. If you can't make it to the classroom, I will also host a workshop on Saturday, June 30 from 6:30pm-8:30pm in Workshop Room 2.

Very cute drawing, Marianne. Love the way her bow looks like ears.

Actually, they are ears. A common activity at Anime conventions is to make cat ears, buy cat ears, or wear cat ears.
