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!

Bringing Home the Goods: WonderCon 2015

Home from WonderCon 2015. We spent most of the day walking the exhibit hall floor. Oddly, my feet aren't throbbing like they usually are after a day at San Diego Comic Con.

Stuart Ng Books is always our first stop. David found what he was after as did I. I bought Nicoletta Ceccoli's Daydreams and a book of Harry Clarke: An Imaginative Genius in Illustrations and Stained-glass Art. While wandering the aisles, I also picked up a Margaret Keane print and some Miyazaki toys (from Kiki's Delivery Service and My Neighbor Totoro.)

We also attended two panels, Scott Shaw's Oddball Comics which is always fun and a screening of Batman vs Robin (meh.) I really enjoyed speaking with Len Wein (creator of Wolverine) and seeing Darwyn Cooke (dreaming of being able to afford a sketch from him some day.)

I also met Marli Renfro aka Janet Leigh's body double for Psycho's shower scene. She confirmed Hitchcock did direct that scene and *not* Saul Bass. She also said Saul Bass was working on the set. He had a small table in a black tent on the set. He'd come out, see what was going on and go back to work.

As far as cosplay, lots of old favorites like Spidey, Batman, Harley Quinn as well as a ton of Doctors ( lots of Tennant) and even several Kiki's! I posted some photos like this one to my instagram:


Now we're just counting the days until San Diego. It'll be here before we know it. (Tristan just yelled, "95!" SEE?!)
