St. Louis Mini Con

In just two weeks (March 2-5) the St. Louis chapter of the National Caricaturist Network (NCN) is hosting an event called a "mini convention". At this convention some great artists like Tom Richmond, Ed Steckley and Court Jones will present feature seminars on broad topics, while others (like myself) will offer small, intimate workshops on more specific areas.

Caricature conventions are amazing events that will inspire your artistic bones like nothing else, and are very worth the time. You can still sign up at the St. Louis Chapter website, and it's not an expensive event, by any means... you don't even have to be a member of the NCN; anyone and everyone is invited!

I will be presenting a small workshop on digital painting for ones self and recording a podcast. It will be a demonstration on how I practice and warm up before I do an illustration (or between jobs), as well as creating a caricature and podcast with the guests' questions and comments included. This podcast will be posted on the web like my other videos, and should offer an insight into the technical side of recording ones own video, as well as thoughts on basic Adobe Photoshop painting, caricature, drawing and the process of practice.

This is promising to be a fun, educational event, so don't miss out.

Sounds great- I'm probably going to save my money for North Carolina, however. I'd like to hear what you have to say on Photoshop painting; I'll wait for the podcast.

I'm curious as to wheather there is a NYC chapter for the NCN? If there isn't we should organize something with all the caricaturists here- there are some good ones who don't even know about the NCN.

It was wonderful to get to meet you. The minicon was great, though not being able to hear your johnny cash was disapointing.
