I recently ventured to SCRANTON, Pennsylvania, for one
of the most amazing events of all time .....
*****The Office Wrap Party!!!!!*****
While there, my buddy Dave & I had the opportunity to celebrate the farewell
to the long-running series alongside members of the cast and crew!!!!
I've watched the show from the start and have always enjoyed it!! It's gotten me through hard times and
has also been a wonderful way to spend time with family and friends, laughing and smiling together.
I created a "Farewell Dunder Mifflin" Illustration and brought it with me to Scranton along with framed prints
to gift to cast members. I made it my weekend goal to meet them all and pass on my artwork to them.
And.... I succeeded!!!! I even managed to gift the original illustration to Series Creator Greg Daniels.
I had an amazing time sharing my artwork with people in Scranton and it means a great deal to me to have met the cast and to have brought smiles to their faces. They were so appreciative of the work and I couldn't have been more inspired by the way the weekend unfolded. It was fantastic!!
STEVE CARELL even showed up to entertain fans!!!! He is he only cast member who I did not
have the good fortune to meet and share art with. Someday, though!! I shall someday!!!
Have a look through my photo gallery featuring moments from the event
weekend as well as key Scranton locations related to the series!!! Enjoy!
For anyone who has followed my artwork updates on this site it is obvious that one of my dreams is to see GUARDS produced as a television series!! So, to meet and share artwork with Greg Daniels & the cast is a huge inspiration to me! I, of course, slapped some Lifeguard Studio bookmarks on the back of the frames with hope that they would someday see my work on here. Thanks for checking out my new artwork article and stay tuned for more updates!! I've been creating new comics and illustrations like a storm for the passed few months and will be throwing up goodies real soon. I apologize for the hiatus! Cheers, Jimmy
