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!

Free Comic Book Day 2015

Hard to believe that we were home from Free Comic Book Day an hour after it started! We had a blast at our favorite comic shop, Golden Apple Comics. This was the first year that there weren't a ton of comics on our list and we managed to get everything that we wanted at one shop. Tristan was happy because he got a ton of free movie swag (t-shirts, a thermos, sunglasses and Avengers themed bottles of Nesquik.) I was happy because I got all of the comics on my list! Golden Apple had a deal if you donated money to the Hero Initiative (a program that supports comic book creators), you could pick another comic, so I chose Dr Who. Golden Apple is also having a sale so I grabbed a new comic book box, regular size bags and trade paperbacks of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman (I love these comics) and Wayward (I read the first issue and it piqued my interest.) 

I'm going to prep for my Scrampers class tomorrow and then start reading my pile. Happy Free Comic Book Day, Folks! 

UPDATE: I read all of the above comics and my favorites were:
Comics Festival
Super Mutant Magic Academy 

Avengers (Ms Marvel!!!!)

Did you visit your local comic shop today? If so, what did you pick up?
