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 more than twenty years. 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!

Free Comic Book Day 2014

Tristan and I were up and out early yesterday morning for Free Comic Book Day. We're lucky that there are a large number of comic book shops in Los Angeles. We hit Golden Apple Comics, Melrose Music and Meltdown Comics. We picked up everything on our list. I read a ton of the comics yesterday and the ones in the above photo were my favorites. 

Folks often ask what our favorite comic shops are and honestly, each one offers something different. Golden Apple always holds a special place in our hearts as we've been going there the longest. It was one of the first places that David took me to when I arrived in Los Angeles in late December 1995. He was a weekly customer long before that.

Free Comic Book Day always offers previews of some of the best comics to come in the new year. Not all of these were mentioned or offered on FCBD but I'm really looking forward to:

What am I missing?
