This last weekend was one of the best weekends of my life. The artists of Mad Magazine (old school) have been my greatest influences. On Saturday night we honored Jack Davis and Sergio Argones with the first annual Comic Art Professional Society (CAPS) lifetime achievement award Named the "Sergio" in honor of Sergio, who is the co-founder of the association. But on friday night I had the greatest thrill and honor of hosting a dinner at my house with Jack Davis,Sergio Argones and Paul Coker Jr. along with their wives as well as Bill Morrison(Bongo Comics) and Chad Frye(Caps President). It was also the day of Jack and his wifes 56th anniversary. These are pictures of us at dinner, in my studio and at the Banquet. The greatest story of the evening is when Jack and Sergio sat down to draw on my Cintiq, pictures below. Jack drew me and sergio drew a pirate, Paul Coker was a little shy. Jack really loved it and coul'nt get over it, Sergio liked it to but thought it was to slow, and for those of you who know Segio, know that he draws extremly fast. Anyway, that's it for now, I'm still on cloud nine.

Steve, could you do a post or an Artcast on clubs you recommend on aiming for, or qualifications/industry standards for certain organizations with membership? I'm wondering if CAPS is for me, or if I'm for it... Love to hear your take.

Marcelo Vignali said...

Wow! Congradulations to Jack Davis! (Thanks for sharing the photos. I'd love a studio like yours someday: filled with great art on the walls.)

Stephen, what is Cintiq?

stephen Silver said...

Cintiq, is the new wacom screen, you actually draw on the monitor itself. It is really great.
