I ran into Matt at this year's CTN Expo while he was walking around the floor. I don't usually geek out too much over meeting people but it was pretty unreal to meet a guy who had such a huge impact on our culture! Since he is so famous I was worried that he would be grumpy but just the opposite! He was a super friendly and down to earth guy. Thanks so much Matt!

The ever elusive Nicolas Marlet was kind enough to do this sketch for me at CTN 2010 after I recognized him and introduced myself. His blank expression is really intimidating but after he speaks you realize he is insanely nice. While he was drawing this for me a huge chunk of Sketch Travel was right about to do a group photo (which I didn't even realize at the time) and Peter De Seve saw Nico drawing this for me and said he was jealous. Thanks Nico!
Unbelievably talented illustrator Carter Goodrich is a little self conscience and after a kid at his talk tried to call him out to do a sketch in front of the entire audience he was a little put off and wasn't comfortable doing sketches for anyone. I asked him to sign the page instead and he kindly agreed. If I ever meet him again I will ask if he is willing to do a quick sketch on the same page. Thanks anyways Carter!
It is a scientific fact that Kris Pearn is the nicest guy ever to exist. Don't ask him for a kidney unless you really need one because he'll do it! (Pure speculation) He was the head of story on Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and is now directing the sequel. Can't Wait! Thanks Kris!
The owners of Imaginism Studios and Dynamic duo Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera were nice enough to do these sketches for me at CTN. I took Bobby's amazing digital painting class back when it was after hours at Sheridan before his online classes started and It was one of the best things I ever did! Thanks Bobby and Kei!
A sketch by Pixar story artist and the director of the short Partly Cloudy, Pete Sohn. This sketch was acquired after my Burbank trip at the Ottawa Animational Festival. After waiting in a pretty long line and trying to calm my nerves I ended up being super awkward and overly enthuthiastic talking to Pete. I'm pretty sure I creeped him out with my over excitedness but he was nice to me
anyways. Thanks Pete!
