Thank you, Second City!

April 22, 2016

A big thank you to Sheena Laird, Rawson Vint and Andy Eninger at Second City Training Center for hosting Thursday’s workshop on cartoons and creativity! (In 3-hours we looked at the philosophy of creativity, worked the creative process, brought new characters to life, studied narrative structure, exercised some basic drawing fundamentals, and drew a bunch of cartoons. Whew!)

An extra big thank you to the participants! You guys were great, and I look forward to seeing the results of your creative efforts.  Thanks also for showing so much interest in my cartoon work, and in The Wonderful, Happy, Cartoony World of Steve & Blueyclick here for the details.
For those who missed the fun, keep your eyes open at Second City — there just might be a cartoon course debuting in June! (Wink, wink; nudge, nudge.)

A very special thank you to Alicia Haywood for capturing the night in photos!
