Shanghai Theater Academy Dancers

On November 17th, I went to a performance of the Shanghai Theater Academy Dancers. The whorls of color and movement were stunning. Lots of traditional costumes and dancing stories from China were showcased. I scribbled down gestures in the dark. The last two drawings feature a set of girls with long feathers for a headdress.

Joann Sfar in Berkeley

Last night, I went to see Joann Sfar at Comic Relief in Berkeley. It was delightful hearing him speak about making comics. He really emphased to "forget beautiful drawings and focus on proper storytelling." He believes the drawing itself is nothing. He wants answers to: What is the voice? What is the character? and What occurs next? in his stories.

The profile portrait looks like him the most.
