Commission...Calgary Expo 2007


I recently was invited to exhibit @ the Calgary Expo 2007, on April 29th..... I was contacted previously to do a commission of an attendees characters...of course I went for it when I saw one of his characters was a tiger.... Here is a scan of the commission, I actually really enjoyed doing this one, hopefully Erik enjoyed it just as much....

Pictures of my time @ the Expo will soon follow...

She has wings so she probably doesn't need to ride the tiger... but why fly when you can ride a frikkin TIGER!! I tried to ride a tigger once. I'm no longer allowed at any Disney parks or resorts.

I saw your book from Marcelo and I saw very exciting character designs, David. Beautiful pieces. Sorry I missed you when you visited us in the studio. Hope we'll have a chance to meet when you drop by again sometime. Thanks for the comment on my blog and keep it up.

Coh,

I like the faerie and tiger...nice.

I keep your book "The Art of Animal Character Design" perched up on my book case, as on-display for anyone who comes into my office. It's the first thing they see when they come in. And, you wouldn't believe the comments I get and interest in your book.

The Bev says hello!
