Kane Gets A Mention
The other day an artist named Erik Petri left a comment on my blog. He informed me that he attended an illustration conference called ICON6. Speakers included the likes of Istvan Banyai, Tim Biskup, The Clayton Brothers, Jeff Soto, Gary Taxali and Todd Oldham. At the conference, one speaker in particular named Dan Santat gave a workshop on promoting oneself on youtube. As an example, Erik said he showed my youtube video that I did of myself drawing on the streets of Brooklyn. It's too bad my early attempts at film are so junky. That one was before Butch Belair made that cool squirrel opening for me. Anyway it's nice to know that somewhere other artists are appreciating my little art projects. We can all use an ego boost now and again.
By the way, check out this video Dan Santat did of his portfolio. It's genius. Also he's the creator of the Disney show, The Replacements.
