A couple of weekends ago now–moving in caused some major disruptions in my schedule–I got to hang out with my friend Miguel Angel Cardona. We met in college and have reconnected this summer since we are both in the Bay Area. It has been great to hang out and sketch together.
The last time we visited he was kind enough to add an Octo-Puss In Boots to our book!
Miggi doesn’t consider himself an illustrator but, I think that is clearly a part of him. We are so happy to have his work as part of the Octo-Puss in Boots book.
It was great to get to sit, sketch, have coffee, and chat with a friend. I enjoyed the working together element, as we sketched we almost challenged each other to get more and more creative. I hope we can continue our sketch meet ups! Check out his recent coffee cups project.
On another note, we have moved into our permanent place in San Jose. We are almost all set up and a day to day schedule for time to draw should be falling into place soon. Hopefully this also means my regularly scheduled blogging will begin again. I’m clearly not as organized as some bloggers. Since, I didn’t set up automatic posting during the time I couldn’t ensure a weekly update. Maybe that will be a future goal! Pictures of the new studio to come, it’s not completely decorated yet, probably by next week. Until then.
