Grapple Entertainment

While Mindy and I were in San Francisco, we chatted with the folks over at Grapple Entertainment. You can read an article about them, by clicking their company name in the upper right hand corner of this blog.

One of the things they do is develop Intellectual Properties by utilizing Graphic Novels--a great way to market projects, since they convey concepts in a fashion similar to storyboards. These days, every summer blockbuster is based on comic books.

Also, I'm impressed by the fact that Grapple Entertainment helped raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, by publishing a book called "Super Stories" by 7-year-old boy Zach Thoma, who lives with lymphoma, and 10-year old Adrianna Tucker, who has leukemia.

APE Comicbook Convention, San Francisco

Just got back from a weekend trip to San Francisco--Mindy Lee and I were there to promote the "Rock God Opera" prints that had been originally created for the San Diego Comicon.

It was a lot of fun--we stopped by Pixar, for their Halloween party.

Again, we shared a booth with Shelly Wan. William Bradford also helped-out at our booth--he is an animation artist from Canada. You can check out his blog by clicking the link in the above left-hand corner of this site.
