Cons: Off to SPECTRUM Fantastic Art Live! tomorrow---
aprillee, bjd, sard
Convention Season starts for me this weekend. Going off to Spectrum Fantastic Art Live, in Kansas City, MO. It's an all-fantasy art expo that started last year. It's run by the folks who do the SPECTRUM: Best in Fantastic Art Books. And they have their awards ceremony there. Tons of artists have booths and guest artists do panels and presentations. It's pretty cool if you love fantasy art at all.

Here's the website:

I'm sharing a booth with Diana Harlan Stein... and friends, Karen and Joseph Bovenmyer will be there to help us out and just hang out.

Other upcoming events:

Illustration Master Class -- (attending as a student) in June

San Diego Comic Con -- (booth with Diana Stein in Fantasy Illustrators area) in July

GenCon -- (table in art show) in August

are you doing world con? or is it the same time as Gencon?

I wasn't planning on Worldcon this year. I actually went to the last Worldcon in San Antonio and really enjoyed it (just saw that there were floods in San Antonio at the moment, which is too bad). Anyway--it should be good! Seems like a number of people I know will be going this year, unlike in the past decade or so! I rather wish I were going, but I'll probably be tired of cons by then!

Go to the Nelson in KC if you have time! It's a great museum!

Unfortunately I'm more used to the kansas side, so I can't make any location recommendations other than that. XD And stay away from the Paseo, it's a rough part of town.

I'd love to go some time. So far I've just run in on Friday and left Sunday night and never left the convention center, which is a bit of a shame, really. Maybe I'll try and stay an extra day next time?
