I bet you're wondering where I've been off to, since it's been so long since I updated my blog. Well, I've been a lot of places and been busy doing a lot of things, writing books, drawing pictures, coloring with markers- you know, the usual.
This week I am in Winnipeg, Canada, doing demos with Artists Emporium. Their open house theme this year is Medieval, so of course I'm drawing and coloring cool things. Last night at their open house I had the fun chance to color this image of a dragon and wizard. I think today I'll draw a castle of some sort, since I love castles.
This whimsical picture was colored with W1, W3, W5, W7
BG02, B05, B95, B29, B39, B00, B02
V22, V25, E31, E33, E35, E39
Y11, y02, Y28, Y35, Y38, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG06, G20, G24, G28, G07, Colorless blender, R22, R24, R29, RV69, and probably a few more I forgot to list!
It took about an hour to draw the picture, then it took about 4 hrs to color, since it is a full sheet of paper. I used our new Art Paper Pack paper for coloring my final illustration (same paper as the Copic Sketchbook), but I drew it on a piece of Alcohol marker pad.
So, where in the world will Copic be over the next few months? Lots of places! Did you know that you can find a list of all sorts of events and workshops on our website?

For instance, I bet you didn't know that we now offer Fine Art intro to Copic workshops, and they will be coming to a city near you! Seattle fine art workshop is a few weeks away, May 30th, and more locations will be added this Summer. Fine Art workshops are only $99.
If you are looking for Papercrafting workshops, we have a great variety of those as well. Just look at our site for more great locations, one hopefully near you.
If you haven't had a chance to visit the Copic website recently, I think you should take a moment and see what's on there. We are constantly adding new products, running great contests, new tutorial manga from Chihiro and Alisa, and much, much more!
So, if you are in Winnipeg, I hope to see you tonight. If you are somewhere else, then I hope to see you sometime in the future. Meanwhile, enjoy the Copic website!
