Had a GREAT time at ConGlomeration! Met up with old friends. Did pretty darned well in the art show even though it's a small con (no awards, but best sales to date!) Didn't lose a kid. Ate great Indian food. Steve Belledin was informative and I'll tell ya, it's always a perk to see paintings, in-person. The colors are so much richer than over the monitor. I'm not sure he knew what to make of me, though. I seemed to make him uncomfortable. Maybe it's the gray hair! Scary stuff. :D
Anywho, win-win, all around! But now it's back to the ol' grind. It really has sealed my notion that while it's vital to be digitally-literate, traditional media is SUPER important to an artist's arsenal. It gives your career breadth and longevity.
I still love cranking out my bookcovers and doing the odd digi-illustration, but gallery arts are where I want to be. It's decided. Time to seriously shift gears, no ifs, and or buts. Stayed tuned for the further adventures of "Dream-on, Alice"!

I've been doing a ton of e-covers lately and little else. Boo. (Not "Boo, covers" but "Boo, no time for practice and self-indulgent artstuffs".) Gotta steal a few minutes to get prints and framing together for a con this weekend, though. So here's a recent cover, sans text, to keep this poor blog alive and kicking. Handsome feller, eh? Oh, and Happy Egg Day, peeps. (HAR!)
