We were watching a silly video on my wife’s laptop when I looked up and saw all three kids hugging while watching. I had to sketch them. (I still can’t believe they’re all teenagers now.)
Our annual pilgrimage to the San Diego Comic-Con by train. This time I took all the kids, giving Joan a bit of a break for a day. My good friend John who went to Art Center with me rides with us on the train every year too. This year we met up with one of my wife’s good friends from high school and his two boys as well as her cousin’s kids who drove down from Santa Barbara. It was quite a group. The kids really look forward to it, and the 3-hour train trip is at least half the fun. I’ve been going to the Comic-Con just about every year since 1989. I didn’t do as much drawing as I’d like, but there were some great things to see and buy — and keeping track of the tribe was an immersive experience too, especially since the event sold out for all four days and was quite crowded.
