Thank You Vroman’s Bookstore!

I would like to thank everyone who came out for The Drawing Club book signing and talk at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena on Monday. It was a lot of fun meeting everyone and seeing a lot of old friends. I would also like to thank Jeffrey Smith, Chris Turner, Mike Barry, Will Martinez, Forrest Card and John Musker for joining me for the talk and signing. I know how busy you all are, so it means a lot to see you to make time to participate.

The Drawing Club is Moving!!!


Hello Everyone,

I am excited to announce that The Drawing Club will be moving to our new location at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra starting in January 2015. We will be taking the month of December off to move and get settled in.


As many of you already know, Gallery Nucleus has an international reputation for having great shows featuring original contemporary, graphic, commercial and narrative art as well as one of the finest art book stores in Southern California.

We will miss our original location of 12 years, but our new location offers several benefits.         – Attendees get a 15% Discount on books and merchandise during the workshop.                       – Great restaurants near by.                                                                                                               – Plenty of free parking.                                                                                                                           – Air conditioning!

Our first workshop will be on Thursday January 8, 2015, 7 to 10pm. This first one will be free! We will also have a book signing for The Drawing Club Book that night and I have invited ALL the artists in the book to be there!

I hope you can make it!
