Dragons, Dragons and more Dragons!

Awhile back, seemingly almost two years ago, I happened to be sitting at one of my favorite wineries with my iPad in-hand.  As I oft due, especially in crowded spaces, I was engrossed in sketching while trying to ignore the cacophony that is, to my ears, humans in a crowded space.

art in action @ norwescon

For those attending Norwescon 41, I will be participating in Art in Action.  I will be showing my digital art process and tools for anyone interested.  Note, I am not a professional, but an avid hobbyist; so my motivation is more purely to meet folks, and since I wanted to some time to just sit and sketch, what better way than to make myself feel exceedingly awkward by doing so in public space where anyone and everyone can come up and say hello.

  • Thursday, 4 – 6p @ Table B
  • Saturday, 4 – 6p @ Table E

Please do not hesitate to stop by and say hi!
