See you at Radcon!

Hi there! This is just a quick update to let you know that I’ll be a panelist at RadCon 7 this weekend, in Pasco, Washington. I’ll be getting there on Friday afternoon, and I will be on panels and have some of my artwork for sale in the art show. I will also be doing an art demonstration from 4:15 – 5:15pm on Saturday in the Art Show. I will probably be demonstrating armature-making and sculpting techniques, and perhaps how I do my faux metal painting. I will also have some copies of my coloring book and calendar with me, available for sale.

In addition to my coloring books, I will have some exciting new items for sale in the art show. I will be showing some of the artwork I made while in Mexico last summer, for the first time at a con. They are 8”x8” original mixed media & encaustic on wood, and bidding will start at $40 (or direct sale $50). I also developed a new method of doing prints of my encaustic and multi-media work and will have my first of these prints in the art show. They are on wood, with an encaustic finish, and look more true to the original than paper prints, and they don’t need to be framed! Bidding on these will start at $30 (or direct sale $40).

Here is my schedule of panels for the weekend:

Collaborations: Across the Arts
Many endeavors are by nature collaborations – books, graphic novels, and comics combine writing, publishing, and art, audio books are a collaboration with the recording artist, and film combines everything from music to script writing. We sometimes choose more unique collaborations such as paintings where several artists leave their mark on the canvas, or collections of short stories set in a specific world. What are examples of collaborations that have worked well or worked poorly? What skills are needed to successfully collaborate or manage a collaboration? Hear the panelists personal collaboration stories and the most important lessons they have learned when working with others.

You’re an independent writer. You’re an independent musician. You’re an independent artist. How big do you need to be to make a sustainable living?

Come listen to our pros talk about alternative ways of building your own career niche as an independent creator.
