"In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29."

John Starduck meets Adobe? Frankly, this is a piece I completely forgot about until last Monday. I was travelling back from Tigobo's Meet Ze Artists event in Angoulême to Paris by train together with Adobe's Stéphane Baril (super nice guy btw) talking about this and that in connection with drawing in Photoshop etc. Anyways, this very chat reminded me on this rough piece here below which I did for a live demo for my students in Salzburg. Trying to show how my digital rough sketching process proceeds. The detail with the Adobe logo was just added to make the piece sort of more significant.
Tigobo Animation Studios: Ze team, complete, at least for the most part. Arthur Fong was at that moment already on his way to Paris and Casey Maxwell Clair and Christopher Beaumont took the air.
Here are some impressions of the character design workshop Stéphane Chung and I were giving @ Meet Ze Artists. We were btw using one of Carl Spitzweg's famous postman paintings as reference/inspiration, here.
