2013 has been an exciting year at City Beast Studio! After initially launching our creative collective back in January and developing a roster of titles currently in production, we had the opportunity to partner with local businesses and organizations to produce a special edition of the “Victoria Sharp – Girl Inventor” comic for the Flying Car (Innovation In Technology) event here in Milwaukee.
Big thanks go out to Flipeleven Creative, Innovation in Milwaukee, and all of the gracious event sponsors. The Flying Car Gala was a fun and inventive celebration featuring a retro-future atmosphere, music, dancers, robots, community and business leaders, and even a winged “flying” 57’ Chevy.
Victoria Sharp herself (Model Kristen Finkbeiner) made an appearance at the gala. She was awesome enough to take time away from her busy schedule of inventing the technology of the future, to come down and pose for photos with some of the event’s many hosts, honored guests, and attendees!
If all this wasn’t enough excitement, our lead artist, Cole Norton is heading off to Japan where he will be expanding his education, immersing himself in the cultural and creative vibe, and bringing City Beast to Tokyo!
We had an amazing bon voyage dinner to send Cole off, and one final in house City Beast meeting where we held the official City Beast Manifesto signing and tea ceremony.
We have a lot on the City Beast docket for 2013 and can’t wait for Cole to get settled into his new space in Japan so we can get right back on track with our titles currently in development:
… And much more to come in 2014!
