Visiting Kei Acedera & Bobby Chiu from Imaginism Studios

When in San Diego a visit with Kei Acedera and Bobby Chui from Imaginism Studios is at the top of our "to do" list; Doug and I met them on a July 2007 Toronto to San Diego flight. 

In addition to specializing in movie production and children's books,  Imaginism Studios offers online art classes, such as Drawing Fundamentals, Character Design and Gesture Drawing.  After visiting Kei, we went to see Bobby at the Schoolism booth.

Pierre Bernard Visits Doug During SDCC

Doug and I met Pierre several years ago at SDCC; we always look forward to his stopping by the Big Wow Art booth.  This year he couldn't resist buying one of Doug's 11 x17 watercolor originals.

Pierre has been a graphic designer with Conan O'Brien for 20 years; he's also been on-air with "Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage." 

Pierre also brought "LaBamba" to SDCC this year to meet Doug.  He's been a member of the house band on Conan's late-night talk shows the past 20 years.

While Pierre and a friend were looking over Doug's 11 x 17 limited edition prints, Lynn Johnson - creator of "For Better or For Worse" and a 2012 Special Guest at SDCC - stopped by Doug's booth to show us one of her convention purchases.

This was Stephanie's first visit to SDCC; she's from Houston, Texas.

Like Stephanie,  this was Charity's first time attending SDCC, but she was familiar with Doug's cartoons in Playboy because she has a subscription to the magazine.

Playboy Reporter & "Avenger" Bunnies Visit Doug During SDCC

Playboy assigned a reporter to cover SDCC events so she naturally stopped to talk with Doug, who's had over 450 full-page color cartoons published in the magazine since September 1964. 

A visit by the "Avenger" bunnies to see Doug at the Big Wow Art booth was so cool!!!
