Hey all, just a quick mention of the shows I'll be attending these next few months!
San Diego Comic Con (July 20-24)
I'll be showing once again in San Diego with Daren Bader at 4914, next door to the mind blowing Allen Williams. Anyone attending should stop in and say hello, we'll be there all weekend with originals, books, DVDs and prints. Now that my prep is finished and the materials are enroute, I can say without hesitation that I'm really looking forward to a weekend of seeing old friends, buying amazing new art books, and soaking up some concentrated inspiration :D
Worldcon (Reno NV, Aug 17-21)
Boris is this year's Artist Guest of Honor at Worldcon, so the whole family is heading out. I'm already scheduled for a whole slate of programs about art and the illustration business, along with portfolio reviews along side Boris, Lou Anders (Pyr Books), John Schindehette (Wizards of the Coast), and others. Actually, there's a ton of cool art programming going on, check out John Picacio's blog for more info.
Dragon Con (Atlanta GA, Sept 2-5)
It was my pleasure this year to participate as one of the art show jurors, so I'll be out as a guest taking part in the art show events as well as some other programing. I know for sure I'll be doing a presentation on promotion and job hunting for freelancers as well as a big group panel about the Tarot set that we have coming out next year. I've never been to a Dragon Con but *everyone* has been telling me I need to go and I'm very excited to finally check it out.
Illuxcon (Altoona PA, Nov 3-6)
Wrapping up 2011 close to home at my favorite of all conventions: Illuxcon. A quiet, pleasant weekend of art overstimulation and inspiration with some of the most amazing people you'll ever meet. How can it get better than that?
