Sketching Glen Keane

Animation legend and nice human being Glen Keane recently visited SPARKCQ in Vancouver, and I was very fortunate to volunteer and sketch at the event. I know! How can I NOT sketch when Glen Keane is talking, gesturing, explaining and drawing! The night he received his lifetime achievement award, I only carried markers and some immigration forms… and I did not hesitate: I sketched on them 🙂 The next day though, I came prepared with the sketchbook I use when sketching with markers.

During his talk, entitled “Thinking like a child”, not only he shared his thinking process behind his designing the Beast, sweet family anecdotes, fun memories from the time he worked at Walt Disney Studios and wise advice. He also showed what a humble, sweet, caring person he is.
