Hi everyone,  

Hope you all had a GREAT weekend!  

My weekend was all about fun-filled work...

I was excited to be a guest at at Star Wars event in Rancho Cucamonga Cultural Center on Friday May 29th.  

It was quite an honor for me being invited to do a meet & greet along with an art demonstration. 

I am truly grateful for the invitation! 

The guest list was BEYOND cool~Kyle Newman & the crew from "FANBOYS" & my partner Randy Martinez, the 501st were among the invited guests. Kyle is sooooo nice! It was cool being able to hang out with him in an intimate setting before the crowd arrived & I'm looking forward to hanging with him at Star Wars Fan Days III... I posted a photo of Kyle, Randy & I here... 

I approached a contact I made with SAKURA at "Wonder Con" about sponsoring our portion of the event. "SAKURA" ROCKS!!! They were kind enough to donate 100 Manga Start Vol 2 & 3 Booklets for me to hand out! In addition to the booklets, SAKURA also donated 1 set of Pigma Sensei, 1 set of micron black, 1 set of Pigma Brush, along with Literature w/prizes: Pigma ink story, Sakura product tri-fold, Manga Start volumes 1-4 for our Star Wars Trivia giveways...


That was soooooo much fun & the SAKURA sets were a HUGE hit!!! 

To find out more information about Sakura, be sure to visit their website

We had the biggest turnout for our Art Demonstration segment... My partner Randy Martinez & I did a show & tell featuring our art that we had set up on display for all to see... 

Then we did some Star Wars trivia...some of the youngest children REALLY impressed me with their Star Wars knowledge!!! The trivia winners received either SAKURA packages or some artwork by Randy Martinez or myself... Randy ROCKED the house with his "How To Draw Star Wars" lessons! 

A nice surprise during the event happened when we stopped to take a short intermission...

My partner Randy Martinez & I BOTH were inducted as "Honorary Members" to the INLAND EMPIRE FAN FORCE! Thank you for the honor!!!

We REALLY had a GREAT time!!! I am sooo grateful for the opportunity to share my passion for art, Star Wars & meeting new people with the same passions from all walks of life=pure joy!!! 

I will forever cherish the smiles on everyones' faces, while embracing the smile deep in my heart!
