This past Sunday, along with my good friend Rommel Ruiz, I had the chance to meet one of my all-around illustration heroes: Pascal Campion.
Pascal is a French-American illustrator and animator living in the SF Bay Area. The way that he is able to capture and communicate intimate moments about childhood, relationships and the beauty in every day life is a true source of inspiration for me. Simply take a look at some of his pieces below, so you can see what I mean!
From June 27th and until Aug 3rd, 2014 you can see his first exhibit in L.A. “3000 Moments” at the Center Stage Gallery in Burbank, CA.
You can see more of Pascal’s beautiful work and signup to receive a daily sketch from him at http://www.pascalcampion.com/about/

This past Sunday May 11th, we got together at the 10th Annual Mother’s Day Walk Against Cancer in San Jose, CA. Walking from City Hall towards the Mexican Heritage Plaza, we were chanting and enjoying each the company of children who are cancer survivors.
Once at the Plaza, we all enjoyed a healthy breakfast, music, raffles and a moment of reflection for those who have passed, those who are going through, and those who have survived the disease.
Many thanks to the many volunteers and Chief Larry Esquivel and his team from the San Jose Police Department for helping us make this such a memorable and successful event.
