Colossal Characters: Live Plein Air Painting

Pasadena City Hall (100 Garfield Ave) | James Gurney, Marco Bucci, Angela Sung x Warrior Painters, Gary Geraths, Michelle Lin

To kick off LightBox Expo 2023, artist and author James Gurney (Dinotopia) and friends present a live 'plein air' painting event in front of the iconic Pasadena City Hall. Equipped with their sketchbooks, 12 professional artists wearing orange caps will lead the art event, where artists will draw or paint on location while imagining a giant character visiting Pasadena. The character can come from animation, movies, video games, or comics. The interaction between the character and Pasadena can be anything from playful to apocalyptic. Any artist is welcome to join! Each participant should bring their own materials, including a toy or figurine for reference. Each participant receives an official button. The mentors include James Gurney, Marco Bucci, Gary Geraths, Angela Sung, Michelle Lin, four concept artists from Blizzard, and more! We hope to see you there!
