Comic-Con 2005 - Marshall Vandruff
On last Saturday afternoon, illustrator Marshall Vandruff's promo chat of his new published sketchbook, "Forsaking The Bakery", turned out to be a full-on seminar, based on Marshall's personal experience, of how and why to keep a sketchbook, with practical examples of how his work evolved through using his own sketchbook. You hear over and over again that if you want to improve your drawing you must practice, practice, practice--but it's good to get tips, based on another artist's experience, on exactly what to practice, and how. Marshall Vandruff teaches in the Southern California area and I intend to seek out his workshops. At the beginning of August he will be conducting an "Animal Drawing Crash Course" that I badly need. Marshall's sketchbook presentation show-cased his skill as an artist, but also revealed him to be a superior teacher.
And so, in conclusion, I would like to restate that I enjoyed Comic-Con 2005 a log...I meant to write "a lot" there, but I feel that "a log" describes how much I enjoyed Comic-Con 2005 even better. So yes, yes, I enjoyed Comic-Con 2005 a log. And, I suspect, if you yourself attend the Con next year, you too may find that you too enjoy it a log. Perhaps even quite a log. Perhaps a whole great big log.
