While I sat in the Dante Buford panel, I met Matthew Bordenave who is a Storyboard artist and up next was his panel. He was very funny and had a great stage presence.

We’ve made it another year! This year has been one of our best years with all the content we were able to get out and all the adventures we had at every convention we were able to attend thru out the year. Our year was full of fun, hard work and we’re happy to welcome a new year with all of you.
