Nate took us up to the roof of the Marriott Gaslamp at the Altitude Sky Lounge to meet the Steambot Studios people http://www.steambotstudios.com/ for the reveal of their book - SPARK.
http://www.leboxshop.com/Spark_p/book_spspark.htm If you haven't checked it out already you should - it's full of great speed-painting tutorials and awesome digital art. They're a splendid bunch of folks.
Rassamee joined us later for dinner, it was good times.

Posting this made me reminisce about some other art-trips with friends in the past --- like 2008's REVELATIONS Workshop in Seattle and 2006's INSOMANIA Workshop in San Francisco.
|Ray and I in San Francisco - 2006|
|Tom in Seattle 2008. Sexaaaaay.|
