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!

Brief highlights of Saturday's 2009 San Diego Comic Con

Saturday is the night of the Masquerade Party (which we were way too tired to attend), but I snapped some pictures during the day. I couldn't find Rainbow Brite, who I had seen a day or 2 before and loved her costume). Tristan made me take the Star Wars picture. Cool costumes!Jeff Smith signing Tristan's Bone book-
Attending the legendary, Sheldon Moldoff's panel-
Spending 2 hours hanging out by the Nick booth so Tristan could meet the Spongebob cast. TWO FRICKIN HOURS. I was standing right next to Clancy Brown (which made me happy). I snapped Tristan's picture with him. I told Tristan to say, "There can be only one." to him, but he forgot and ya know he gets that all of the time. I loved watching him draw while he was waiting for the people to come down the line. The whole cast of Spongebob was there. Tristan was ecstatic. David and I people watched.
Both Tristan and I were beyond happy to finally get to meet the great Richard Thompson. Haven't read Cul-de-Sac yet? You need to. You need to. Your kids. Your grandkids. Your neighbor's kids. I bought it for Tristan for Christmas and he was laughing so much and so hard that I had to read it. I love it. It's one of my favorites.
My "imaginary boyfriend", Seth's panel. LOVED it. I was 10 minutes late for it as Tristan and I wanted to see Richard Thompson and the 2 hours at Spongebob kinda messed up our schedule, but it was a damn good panel. Any time you have an opportunity to see Seth's slide show and his presentation, DO IT.Guess who took control of the helm?
I also spoke with Barron Storey's agent and found out that-YES!!! The Marat/Sade Journals are being republished in October, in time for APE. There is also an exhibit catalog for Barron's L.A. show. He will also be at Bert Green Fine Art in LA on August 15th. I wish I was going to be there, but I will be in Boston.

One more day!!!
