Pop Haydn meets Nico

I met a member of the Magic Castle for the first time last night as I worked the W. C. Fields Bar. He is a wonderful artist named Nico. Nico is Nicolas Marlet, a top animation and character artist at Dreamworks. He showed me some of the sketches he drew while watching me, and gifted me with one:

From Wikipedia:

Nicolas “Nico” Marlet is a French-American animation artist, character designer and skilled drummer. He is best known for his character design work in the Dreamworks films Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon, although early in his career he worked on Disney television shows such as TaleSpin and DuckTales. He also worked on an unproduced animated version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats. His work has appeared in several “art of” books, including The Art of Kung Fu Panda, The Art of How to Train Your Dragon, The Art of Bee Movie, and his own limited edition sketchbook containing some of his personal works. ~

Pop Haydn in the 21st Century!

Pop Haydn in the 21st Century! is a wonder-filled evening of fun packed with music, comedy and magic.

Pop Haydn demonstrates his Teleportation Device and pitches his Amazing Miracle Oil and also his new Magnetized Water–a modern miracle for health and energy.

Pop will demonstrate the amazing abilities of the Sphere of Destiny, and answer audience questions about the future–about love, health, money and lost objects.

The show features the sexy, sassy excitement of our Louisiana Songbird Bonnie Gordon, the fire and magic of sultry sorceress Sophie Evans, and the good-time music of Professor Dave Bourne and the 21st Century Boys.

Pop Haydn will present Tesla Girl, who will bend the very force of gravity itself while immersed in the powerful radio-magnetic field generated by Pop Haydn‘s Tesla C-2000–a highly modified version of a Tesla Coil.

The show is a lot of fun and is geared toward an adult audience–but it is still family-friendly.

Steampunks, time-travelers, dandies and other 19th Century expatriates are welcome–no weapons, please.
