There’s an art show called Spectrum Fantastic Art Live that’s coming up that some of our members may be interested in attending. This art show focuses on fantasy art, not fine art, so I realize it might not appeal to everyone. I’ve heard from a fellow illustrator whose attended two years in a row and he thinks it’s well-worth attending, even though the genre does not mesh with his and my niche of children’s illustration. It’s very artist-centric, not fan-centric. Lots of illustrators, graphic designers, and publishers come and they talk shop. There are also booths with artwork on display and for sale. It also has forums and workshops.
If you’re interested, it’ll be at the Bartle Hall Grand Ballroom May 9th thru 11th. More information can be found here.
