Inspiration pt.3: John Nevarez
For my third entry for the people who have been an inspiration to me, this man probably needs no introduction. John Nevarez. I met John at the Animation Academy in Burbank a few years ago. His drawings just flowed out of him. I wish I had gotten a chance to know him better then, but I finally got the chance to this year at the San Diego Comic Con. He and I shared a booth this past year, and immediately, I remembered not only how amazing of an artist he is, but what a genuine, fantastic, guy as well. I just watched how effortlessly he would draw at our booth. One picture after another, and so generous too. He was giving away drawings, like they were Halloween candy. This is the only one I got, and if I remember correctly, he didn't even care for it. I snatched it up. I love this! John, you are too humble.
John is one of the nicest, most humble and most talented, truly someone I consider "real", and proud to call my friend. Thanks John! Lookin forward to sharing a booth with you next year in San Diego. Check out his blog (I'm sure you already have) at www.john-nevarez.blogspot.com/
