The recent Spectrum Live convention was completely awesome. I shared a booth with my old pal, Brooke Howell. We had tons of fun meeting up with lots of art buddies and meeting lots of new faces. I finished the Grave Watcher painting just in time to bring it along (in fact it was still wet) and I received a great response from the attendees.
I've never seen a con like this one before -as far as the sheer number of amazing artists goes- and it went really well, especially for it being Spectrum's first con. Some highlights for me were meeting great people like Irene Gallo, Jon Schindehette, Zelda Devon and Kurt Huggins, and the painter of painters, Greg Manchess. Of course there were many more...I could go on and on.
Manning the booth didn't leave a lot of time to see all the wonderful demos, workshops, and film screenings; I barely even managed to walk the entire floor to see all the amazing artwork. I did manage, however, to catch Greg's demo and the awesome display of the bat tumbler.
I really hope that Cathy and Arnie Fenner decide to host the con again next year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
