Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! Event

Gonna do some name dropping here, so tune out if you're not into it.

This weekend I attended the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! event in Kansas City. Very much enjoyed spending time with James Gurney and Jean-baptiste Monge and their wives, Kathleen and Margot. Also very much enjoyed meeting two more of my heroes, Scott Gustafson  and Paul Bonner, and buying their books. The place was crowded with great artists in many fields, including Greg Manchess, Donato Giancola, Dan Dos Santos, Mike Mignola, Tim Bruckner, and many others. Great to be able to hobnob with these inspiring, generous people.

Also got more information about TLC Workshop's Professional Art Series, sponsored by the energetic and very able Tara Larson Chang.

These conferences can be very inspiring once you get past the seeing how great they are at only 1/3 my age. Makes me want to do much more much better. Great stuff!
