What: Goodbye party for “Neighbors From Hell” producer Malissa Caroselli.
When: Wednesday, January 20, 2010
Where: Next Door Tapas Lounge, at 11814 Ventura Blvd, in Studio City, California
Why: To wish Malissa a relaxing and rewarding 3 month hiatus from Bento Box and the animation biz in general
Who: Malissa Caroselli (guest of honor), Phil Hayes and Melinda Leasure (the organizers), Brad Rader (the artist), Jen Coyle, Ryan Corbet, Rocket (?), Brittany Bailey, Myra Owyang, Nathan Chew, Nate Clesovich, Jungja Kimwolf, Kyounghee Lim, James McDermont, Tyler Gentry, Kyung Shin, and several other people I didn’t get a chance to sketch.
Why #2: I have a long-range goal to do drawings of everybody I know.
Why #3: I use it as an excuse to talk to people I don’t normally talk to, although I actually prefer drawing people when they don’t know I’m looking at them.
How: By practicing; people in these situations tend to cycle between repetitive poses even if they’re continually moving.
