The Artist #pascalcampionart. _Lily, go to bed honey. _Just one more drawing mommy! _Sigh… just like her daddy. You just can’t stop being an artist… you don’t learn to be an artist, you just are one.. you learn tools and techniques, you mostly learn how to canalize and direct your creative energy, but you don’t learn how to be an artist

Pop and I go fishing,,but not really #pascalcampionart _Pop, how come we are not trying to catch anything? _ We are.. _ What are we trying to catch? _ A memory. _...hu.. we can't eat a memory Pop. _ It will feed your head when you get older . _ Pop? _yes. _ Are you ok? _ Never better. _Ok. _Ok. _ I love you Pop. _ I love you too. You know, one of the coolest thing about drawing , to me, is not just the fact that you can create new worlds, exciting adventures, and fun characters... it's also when you can recreate a memory. This scene never happened, this dialog, as such, never did, but it's all taken from bits and pieces of my childhood and this image , in a way, is one of the best captures of my relationship with my dad. I see so many artists, especially younger ones, always trying to imitate other artists, always trying to figure out how to draw like them, but so few actually try to create life. People will forget the drawing, but they won't forget the emotion in it if they can feel it. Try this guys.. pick a strong moment of your life, whatever that moment is.. it could be a break up or your first kiss, it could be something that happened with your big brother or your grandpa, the first time you traveled to another country..something that has impacted you, and create a series of images about it. The first one should be easy, but as soon as you get your first idea out , you'll realize that coming up with something new will force you to be honest with yourself, and you'll find that you can't just rely on what you know already.. you'll have to develop new skills just for that.. just to get that bit of truth out.. and you will start telling stories. Just try it.

Marvel Covers While we're talking about Disney and stuff.... And because I've been told that I should talk more about what I do outside of sketches, and, finally, because I got too busy today to do an actual sketch, here are some of the Variant covers I've done for Marvel comics... I definitely have a harder time with these because the dynamic style is something I still need to work on, but, boy oh boy.. this is SO much fun to do. So..let me see.. the first two are Guardians of the Galaxy , then Captain America, then Agents of Shield( LOVED working on that one), Thor, Cap and Iron Man( this one was cool because I had to base it off an old Jack Kirby cover and it was like being a twelve year old all over again), Wolverine and a new series that sounds pretty cool. There... That should be good for work news for a day..right?
Starting tomorrow, the Wonderground Gallery in Disney Land will carry these three prints. http://disneyparksmerchandise.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/PascalCampionOutForASpin.jpg http://disneyparksmerchandise.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/PascalCampionPeterPan.jpg http://disneyparksmerchandise.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/PascalCampionDownBythePond.jpg ..If you want to know the little story behind them... the fire truck is because my son Colin loves firetrucks, Peter Pan is for Max because he's a bit of a dreamer( like his daddy) and I was hoping to do Jasmine for Lily because that's her favorite Princess, but that choice wasn't available.. the close second was Mulan( And Mulan with her dad of course!!)

Happy Father's day. Pascal Campion Art. This one is from two years ago( still can't do new drawings yet, but maybe tonight I can do one) This is image is special to me because I use to do this with my dad and now, my son does it with me.. I can't help but think his son might do it to him .. some circles are worth keeping alive I think. In any case..HAPPY FATHER's Day. ( Pop.. I miss you, I love you)

Batter UP! #pascalcampionart. A super quick one.. we just did that with Lily and the boys in the front yard...and it just struck me that the light, the moment, everything from the fact that Lily is wearing a beautiful dress that she picked and playing like softball , with all her scrapes and scratches.. it all made me think that this was a living sketch.. the light in the back was EXACTLY like this... I just wanted to capture that moment before it was gone. I love you Lily. You make me proud, every single day. Pop.

Good night moon! #pascalcampionart. _Daddy...do you think she's still up there? _...Who?.. _ You know.. the cow... the one that tried to jump over the moon but couldn't quite make it. _..I don't know Lily, I suppose she's still there _ Is that why there is no grass left on the moon then? _....
