J. Gurney and Alex Ross: two titans of creativity in my book. I would love to meet them personally, someday before I die.

Lamentations! All the great art shows seem to be on the east coast. Maybe we should have passed up Ohio when we left California!

I saw Alex Ross at San Diego Comic Con. Also got to see some of his paintings up close at the Chuck Jones Gallery in San Diego, right by the convention center. Amazing work!

Alex Ross did his own rendition of Norman Rockwell in honor of this event. It is very cool! http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2012/09/first-look-alex-ross-poster-for-his-norman-rockwell-museum-exhibit/
