Wow, we ALL have a chip on our shoulders about art schools, hmmm? I wanted to keep my "ART SCHOOL RANT" up longer (it has about 150 VERY LOOOONG comments as of now- btw, I've read them ALL too) but I wanted to get this info out before I forget to post it!
I've finally solidified my "Appearance" schedule and I want you all to come see me at one of these conventions! Its like Tommypaloosa, only no music. The BIG surprise is my wonderful, beautiful, gracious wife has relented....Uh.....allowed...um...given permissi.....geez....AGREED that I should attend HEROES CON next month so if you live in the SOUTH (like me), come on down to North Carolina and buy my new book, old book, my 2012 sketchbook (this will be the first place I sell it in the U.S.- only 50 left!), original art, sketches, AND my new workbook (more on that below)!! See below.
SECONDLY- I have a new product that I am just now releasing to go along with my new book, Character Mentor. Its called the Character Mentor Studio, Workbook 1! (The first of 4 planned.) What is it? One part sketchbook, one part workshop- aka a "workbook". Workbook 1 is super simple but priced in expensively. It's 50 pages of different shapes (usually 4 or 5 per page) for you to make into all kinds of character faces! Its supposed to be a "juices" starter to get you to try new things and create characters you never thought you had in you! I give some instruction/examples in the front pages and the rest is yours to create! Go to my website, Character Mentor Studio here ([link]
) and hit the link. You will be taken to Amazon.com where they will take your money and ship it to you! (BONUS: Add it to your order of my CHARACTER MENTOR book and you will just hit the "free shipping" amount of $25!) Wow, the internet is cool!
