This weekend is the CTN Expo, a time where artists from all over gather to trade/sell artwork, have presentations & give talks, and just in general get together and have an amazing time. I plan on hitting this up next year and cannot WAIT to go!! To see friends that I haven't caught up with in awhile and to also meet some of the artists that I've admired... it'll be incredible and such a wonderful experience.
Anyway, a good friend & all around awesome person, Rachel Tiep-Daniels, will be there at CTN to debut The Picture Book Project!! She and Margaret Wuller, both Dreamworks artists, created the PBP Foundation which helps raise funds to support children and families around the world. For the Picture Book Project, Rachel, Margaret, and Pixar Producer Karen Dufilho-Rosen collected artwork from 66 animation artists to create a coloring book that will raise funds to support orphaned children cared for various organizations in Africa, Mexico, and Cambodia.
Cartoon Brew did a fantastic post about the book and event, which you can find HERE! And then here are the two pieces that I contributed:
I feel very lucky to have been a part of this. Congrats Rachel, Margaret & Karen, and have so much fun this weekend!!
