What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for almost twenty years now. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Just asking...


I know I'm insane, but I thought I'd put it out there...

IF anyone in their travels happens to find a copy Amazing Spiderman #583 -Obama/Spiderman issue. I'm looking for a COVER PRICE copy of the first edition. It's the one with Obama and Spidey on the cover, it's blue.

I think everyone's gone bonkers with this issue, but I thought I'd throw it out there. If you see one, buy it for yourself and put it in plastic with backing board. Even if you're not a comic fan. Even if you didn't vote for Obama. Put it away for your great grandkids.

OH! and F.U. to the store in Sherman Oaks who wouldn't sell it for cover price but instead wants $50 with a so-called discount. AND this store won an Eisner a couple of years ago-BOO to you. I'll take my business elsewhere.

You are kidding...$50 and not cover price?!?!? Are they insane? Geez, what a bunch of price gougers!

Cover price should be $3.95

I phoned several stores and one store-the only one who had it-wouldn't quote a price over the phone but they have it on their website. What a bunch of bastards, too. The store was given an Eisner award (the end all be all of comic book awards). I know the store isn't doing too well either. It just aggravates me this whole ebay mentality.

Tristan wants a copy of it. He loves his Spiderman comics and he thinks this one will be interesting with the President Elect in it.

Isn't that sad that the comics were made for "kids" but they can't enjoy them anymore because of economics and greed. I'll look but being in a smaller area I don't know that we'll have it here either.

Boo on Bastards! Good luck on the search. I'll let you know if I find it somewhere.
