Dear Friends,

I just wanted to share some quick pictures from last weekend at Blick Art Materials in Wheaton, IL. I thank all of you from the 501st Midwest Garrison as well as the fans and friends who helped me celebrate the launch of my new book, ROLLING THUNDER: THE ART OF DAVE DORMAN, including Kevin Sandstrom, Mike Reisner, Chris Spice, Jim Tampa, J. Anthony Kosar, Ian and Cynthia Narcisi and Dr. G. Here are photos, courtesy of Jim Tampa, from this past Saturday:

I’d like to give you a brief rundown of my friends pictured above. James Tampa is the art director at Medallion Press and Medallion Music. Kevin Sandstrom is the store manager for Blick Art Material in Wheaton. J. Anthony Kosar is a gifted artist and sculptor whose recent Blago mask is THE mask to buy in Chicago for Halloween and has garnered a lot of TV coverage. Ian Narcisi is an uber-talented musician and song writer whose new album launches soon. Cynthia Narcisi is a Lucasfilm-licensed artist who is doing terrific work in the field of yoga in addition to her whimsical children’s illustrations. Be sure to follow her on Twitter and FaceBook. She and Ian took a trip to India this past year for 3 weeks that really taught me the important life lesson of following my muse.

Thanks for taking the walk down memory lane with me and thank you to James Tampa for sharing these photos with us.

I’ll have a major announcement tomorrow, so be sure to stop back in for a visit.

Thanks,

Dave.

Dear Friends,

Here is my friend Anjie Ketterer, sporting  purple attire on October 20th to support everyone out there getting bullied and being a peaceful social activist in raising awareness and putting an end to the bullying and cyberbullying that goes on out there against anyone who is deemed “different” in any way.

A Special Thank You: I want to give a shout out to Kevin Sandstrom, my friend who is the manager there and was kind enough to arrange all of this for me.
