My retrospective exhibition at the Laguna College of Art + Design (LCAD) looks amazing. The works I selected for this one man show are all beautifully and thoughtfully hung and lit. It is enormously gratifying to me that this is the best attended exhibition in the College’s history.
I gave a lecture at the show last Thursday night. I was told that this was the very first time they had to ask students to leave so that the gallery could be locked up and secured.
The following day I gave an illustrated lecture and sold and signed some of my books. I had a long, long line but the students (and faculty) were impressively patient.
Thank you, LCAD students and faculty — you all made me feel so extremely welcome and appreciated. Everyone had great questions and comments; I hope that you were satisfied with my answers and responses.
Tonight I’ll be giving a slightly different lecture at the Fullerton Museum Center. I have a wall of original art in their current show, CineSaurus. The exhibition is a history of dinosaurs in the movies, from the silent era to the present. It includes some of my character designs for Walt Disney’s Dinosaur as well as my cover for The Little Blue Brontosaurus, the children’s book that inspired The Land Before Time animated feature.
I look forward to seeing all of my O. C. friends at the presentation tonight!
AND I look forward to seeing my L. A. dinosaur fans at my 2:00 – 4:00PM book signing at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles in Exposition Park tomorrow!
Busy, busy, busy…
