Dragoncon 2012

Dragoncon never ceases to amaze me. If you haven’t been to one, words cannot describe the event. The city of Atlanta actually closes down streets for an epic parade. Celebrities of your favorite sci-fi and horror shows, authors and artists converge. People have parties til dawn in the many hotels hosting hundreds of people, many in full costume. Just 4 days of fun.

My bff, Erika Taguchi-Newton was in the artist alley. I was there to assist her, and I was happy to do so. We went to the artist award show and she WON 2nd place, Best in Show! She also won another award, I was soooo proud I literally had to hold back the tears as she walked up to receive the award hehe. I love her work and was so happy to see others love it as much as I do. Both of us will be back in 2013!

I also met Joseph Corsentino creator of Time of the Faeries’s. I found out we shared a connection that was just surprising and amazing. I cannot believe we met at Dragoncon and I look forward to seeing him again in 2013.

Anyway, I had a lot of fun, even dressed for Friday and Saturday. And I found a dreamy Nathan Fillion look-alike and got what’s probably my favorite photo of myself of all time.

If you ever thought of going, you should. It’s an experience!

The Bhutan Yeti

Introducing my latest piece.

The Huntress of Bhutan
20″x12″, acrylic and graphite on wood
On display at Zapow Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina for their Cryptozoology show

The Huntress of Bhutan

Ever since I saw the show last year about the Bhutan Yeti by Destination Truth, where the found a footprint, I have wanted to do an illustration of this yeti. After 4 different character sketches I am very happy with this one. Hope you like it!

This is a work in progress shot. I changed a couple of things between this and the final, can you spot the changes?

Yeti - pencil on wood

Prints will be available in my shop after my appearance in artist alley at Gencon 2012. More specifically that will be after August 21st, so check back.

Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think of my yeti if you’d like!
