NEW YORK CITY COMIC CON 2008!!
Just returned from Booth 841 at The Annual NYC Comic Con at Jacob Javits Center. I was hired by the great folks at Starz Media/Manga.com , to help promote the upcoming 3D animated movie, SPACE CHIMPS due for Release on July 18 this year.

Or just hit the spacebar link on the right side of the blog page.
My job was to draw caricatures of people and turn them into monkeys! Not ONE complaint about exaggerations today and yesterday!
I worked with another very talented caricature artist, Marlene Kryza (http://www.marlenekryza.com/) who worked one side of the booth/space/area while Worked the other end, and boy was I glad she was there! pretty soon we were up to our elbows and eyeballs with many adoring fans, who literally spilled into the booth to get drawn, watch the film trailer, and pick up the promo materials , much to the delight of the folks at Starz Media! At one point we became SO popular that it caused a bottle neck of sorts inside the booth and it was actually TOO jammed! I guess you can say that people REALLY wanted me to make a monkey outta them! this was such a great idea, that I may use this idea for future gigs!
Will post more later
