Video: Otakon 2013 Chalk Art

Above is the time lapse video for my appearance at the 20th Annual Otakon in Baltimore, MD.

I have become a regular in the artist alley section at Otakon over the years, but this show was something special as it was their 20th Anniversary. The mural I was asked to make was the cover for the program illustrated by Del Borovic. The artwork featured the Baltimore Convention Center in the background, the Otakon Mascots (including Crabby), and a whole assortment of Otaku.

Video: C2E2 ‘Revolution’ Chalk Art Time Lapse for NBC

The streak is alive!!!

April 26th – 29th, I attended the C2E2 convention in Chicago, Illinois. This officially makes me 4 out of 4 on appearances at that show. I love C2E2, it has such an open, welcoming feel to it. The crowd is always enthusiastic, the venue is awesome, and the show never fails to go above and beyond your expectations.

Video: Toy Fair 2013 Chalk Art Time Lapse

Way back in 2007, I was invited to appear at the International Toy Fair in New York City to create a chalk mural inside the booth space of Peru Meridian Studios. Five years later, and I finally get to return to this awesome convention, brought in by The Creative Factor a group showcasing the artistic talent that goes into the concept and design of the new toys coming out each year. This is also one of the few times I was able to create an original illustration as the basis for my chalk art, rather than reproducing an existing artwork.

Video: Star Wars Celebration VI Chalk Art Time Lapse

A few months ago, I had the honor of appearing at the Star Wars Celebration VI Convention at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Little did I know at the time that Star Wars was just a short while away from becoming MAJOR news again. Now that Disney has purchased Lucasfilm and Star Wars Episodes VII, VIII, and IX are planned, I am kind of glad it took a while to get the approval to release the time lapse video from my chalk art at the show. It ends up being pretty good timing.

Video: Star Wars Celebration VI Interview with digitalgamebreak.com

Back at the end of August I appeared at Star Wars Celebration VI where I created a chalk mural for the newest season of The Clone Wars. The mural took 36 hours to make from start to finish and left me with some very raw and bloody fingertips.

Another year, and another Otakon has come and gone. I seriously love this show with all of it’s Manga, Anime, J-Rock and Cosplay inspired crazy goodness. Once again I was asked to take up residence in Artist Alley in the lower level of the Baltimore Convention Center, and spend 30 hours creating a massive mural, this time based on the work of artist Del Borovic.
