It was a bittersweet night last week when artist Eric Shanower, San Diego Opera's unofficial official cartoonist, came to live sketch Cinderella. It was his last time doing so, as he is relocating to Portland, OR. Luckily they have an opera company and here's a little fact nobody knows - we totally stole the "artist night at the opera" idea from them years and years ago.

Artist Night at the Opera - Meredith Gimbel

As a grub, Meridth McKean Gimbel could be found reading books during math class, writing stories during lunchtime, and drawing pictures all over her arms and legs (if she ran out of paper). She was pretty delighted when she found out you could do that sort of thing for a living. So she got a BFA in Illustration from BYU. While at college, she had the good fortune of interning with Brad Holland and Brett Helquist. In 2015 she received the SCBWI LA National Conference mentorship award. Meridth lives in Southern California with her husband, kids, and a paper eating corgi. You can learn more about her here
