My son has gone to this for years, and now that he isn’t going anymore, I get invited! Very exciting, and I am looking forward to what I’ve heard described as crazier than Mardi Gras.
I’ll be there as part of a panel discussion titled Masters of the Illustrated Poster on Friday July 19th from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. It is being presented by ASIFA-Hollywood and Paul Shipper Studio in Room 23ABC.
ASIFA–Hollywood and famed illustrators who have worked on entertainment art for the last 50 years will discuss their craft and what inspired them to pick up the baton and follow in the footsteps of their mentors. Moderator Stephen Kramer Glickman (actor, Big Time Rush, The Night Time Show) is joined by panelists Steve Chorney (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Quigley Down Under), Robert Rodriguez (The Jewel of the Nile, City Slickers 2), James Goodridge (Deadpool, Book of Henry), Matthew Joseph Peak (Nightmare on Elm Street films), William Stout (Life of Brian, Wizards), Paul Shipper (Avengers: Infinity War, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Akiko Stehrenberger (Kiss of the Damned, The One I Love), Rory Kurtz (Baby Driver; I, Tonya), and Jason Edmiston (Evil Dead 2, Texas Chainsaw Massacre).
Hope I might see some folks I know….be sure to say hi!
