Just wrapped up at comic-con and had a great time. After hanging out with Playboy cartoonist Doug Sneyd. Who I am fortunate enough to call my friend, I got inspired. I have never really done water color and found some paint in the back of my draw in my studio, while at home today, I decided to give it a try again.

I attend this convention every year, it is a great way to learn and have fun.
For those of you who may not have heard, the National Caricaturist Network has a new name. We are now ISCA, which stands for the International Society of Caricature Artists. So now the NCN Annual Caricature Convention will be known as the ISCA Annual Caricature Convention.
Speaking of the convention, I wanted to tell everyone here about the big news. This year's annual convention is taking place at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio from November 2nd through the 7th. And the best part is this year's theme: MAD Magazine! We have four top artists from MAD as our guests of honor: Sam Viviano, Mark Fredrickson, Hermann Meija and Tom Richmond. And also for the first time, we are allowing NON-members to come and attend the guest speaker seminars for a special price. All the info can be found here
