PHOTOS - "All Dahl'd Up" Animation Art Show

I got a chance to head over to the Toronto's Gladstone Hotel for the opening of the All Dahl'd Up animator art show this Thursday past. The work's are all inspired by Roald Dahl's stories and each artist has used their own style and medium of choice for their pieces.

It's an excellent show and it only runs until June 16th so I highly recommend checking it out if you get a chance. Also, if you're looking to hang a piece of art on your wall, the prices are quite reasonable.

There were a lot of great folks out for the opening and it gave me a chance to meet some cool new people as well as catch up with old friends. I've posted some of my favourites shots from the night below.

One of the highlights was definitely having a friend come up to tell me they were there because of my posts. It's pretty awesome to be able to share the excitement of this crazy animation industry with folks.
