Saturday's Pin Event

Hey everyone, my pin signing this weekend went really well! Thank you so much to those of you who might be reading that came to support me and pick up a pin or two of mine despite to rain and gloom that morning! I was really surprised to see the crowd. While walking through the store to the tables they had set up for us to sign at, I glanced outside and saw a line at the 1/2 way mark of the World of Disney store! Now I'm not sure if anyone knows or has been to this store before but it's a looooong store. Just seeing that was really surprising especially since I had heard that releases of Cast Create-a-Pins were usually less attended than regular pin events. But more surprising was that I heard later that the line I saw actually extended nearly to the end of the building! Now I know it wasn't just for me but it was really amazing to see such a turnout and a wonderful experience that I hope to have again someday (I'm working on my design for the next Create-a-Pin contest now!) Here're some pictures from the event, thanks so much again to those of you who came!Even my fiance stopped by...The three artists together again...Here's a close-up of the pin itself. (Sorry for the poor quality, because of the size and the metal I was having trouble scanning and photographing it.)Afterwards we took some more pictures of all 3 of us pin design winners and they gave me this framed picture of my design which includes my original concept I submitted, an early color version of the pin and an artist proof copy of the pin, along with 4 other artist proofs of the pin. I was so thrilled! It was more than I had expected!I haven't taken it out of the wrapping as of yet, unfortunatly I don't have a place to hang it right now...

Pin release this weekend! Update: January Sketch of the Month!

Hey everybody,
Don't forget to come down to World of Disney this Saturday to pick up the Haunted Mansion pin that I created. The number of pins made is limited to only 500 so it will probably sell out this weekend, maybe even that same day! I'll be there along with the other two pin design winners signing pins from 9:30-11:30am this Saturday the 24th. See you there!

A little more info here:

Update: For some reason I forgot to mention that my Sketch of the Month for January is also avaliable right now at Off the Page in Disney's California Adventure.All the info on it is listed here! Come on down and pick one up, there's a very limited number of these made!
