An awesome weekend full of artists
This weekend, I had the great fortune of meeting two amazingly talented artists. On the top is Richard Thompson, the cartoonist behind Poor Richard's Almanac for the Washington Post, as well as the great strip Cul de Sac, recently picked up by Universal Press Syndicate.
Proudly, The Press of Atlantic City picked it up at the beginning and has been running it daily.
(Also, check out this cartoon by Thompson. I got to see the original at the Writer's Center in Bethesda, Md., and man is it awesome!)
Below him is James Gurney signing copies of his latest Dinotopia book at the Delaware Art Museum. My roommate in college, Bruno, was a huge admirer of his detailed and imaginative work, and I was fortunate enough to check out some of his originals at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Massachusetts.
