Creative Studio Art Exhibit

The Art Exhibit is one of the main features of this year's Creative Studio event in Las Vegas.  The gallery space will be showing two different collections:  The 2011 AU SketchBook Gallery & a selection from the Art for Hope Japan disaster-refief anthology.

Susan, our curator, reports that all the artwork has been printed, framed, packed and is ready to make the trip to Las Vegas.

"My approach to this years collection was to show the wide range of work that can be made with all the SketchBook apps. I picked some artists that we featured last year... Those who attended AU 2010 and saw our gallery will be impressed with the personal growth and continuity. We’ve also added five new artists that stretch the limits of the apps. I know viewers will be blown away by the diversity of style and technique represented in this year's collection."

The Art Exhibit is yet another reason to attend The Creative Studio!  Don't miss it.

Thanks NYCC 2011

Now that New York Comic Con has come and gone, I wanted to wrap it up with images and highlights from the week.

This was the first time we've ever exhibited at NYCC in our own booth, so we learned a lot... and definitely had a great time!

Thank you to everyone who came by to say hello, to draw, try out 123D Sculpt, ask questions, or simply watch the artists during their drawing sessions. 

This New York visit also had the added treat of visiting Joe Quesada at Marvel.  Not only did I get to meet some of the editors and crew there, but Joe treated me with seeing some of the art he's been working on, including this awesome Spiderman piece that he started with SketchBook Pro! Later, he tweeted the entire process, which can be seen at http://yfrog.com/h7p2leqbj... check it out!

Our booth would not have been possible if it wasn't for the partners & artists that came out to support us.  I particularly want to thank all the artists for sketching their guts out and really making people happy.  Thank you!
