Imaginism Studios: Artists and Friends

Doug and I met Bobby Chiu, president of Imaginism Studios in Toronto, in July of 2007 on an Air Canada flight from Toronto to San Diego, California to exhibit at the San Diego Comic-Con, the largest comics-cartoon convention in North America.

We've stayed in touch with Bobby, Kei Acedera (art director) and Imaginism Studios' artists and staff; Fan Expo Canada is always a great time to get together - our tables in Artist Alley are across the aisle from one another and we always go out to dinner one evening after the convention closes.

Bobby is always busy during Fan Expo - talking with fans, offering suggestions concerning animation projects or answering questions about Schoolism online art classes.

Doug and I didn't see Kei (left) a lot during the 4-day convention this year because of project deadlines, but she did stop in one day to say "hello."

Lillian, Peter and Jason were across the aisle from us in Artist Alley during Fan Expo Canada; we had a chance to catch up with our lives when we all went for dinner at Dazzling, 291 King Street West. Peter had been to the restaurant before and made the dinner reservation. Great choice, Peter!

Meeting for dinner after a long convention day is a great idea - thanks, Bobby, Kei and Peter for including us!!!
