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!

San Diego Comic Con Friday...

Who needs sleep? My men are both soundly sleeping. It's after 1 a.m. and the Eisners are all over and we're back at the hotel. After going several days without sleep, what's a few more?

Some highlights-

Getting into Hell Hall to see the Warner Bros panel for Where the Wild Things Are, The Box, The Book of Eli, Nightmare on Elm Street, Sherlock Holmes and Jonah Hex. I am interested in all of them but very excited about Wild Things, The Box and Sherlock Holmes.

Gary Oldman. I love this man.
In an effort to try to get closer seats to the stage, I got up and tried to see if anyone was leaving. No luck in that department BUT since it was such an insane rush, AND I couldn't move, I snagged some closer pictures of Robert Downey Jr-
I can not wait to see Ponyo. It was a treat to see Mr. Miyazaki.
Finally. How many years did it take? I met Adrian Paul. Would you believe all I said was how happy I was to have finally met him? I went all quiet fan girl. I did take a boatload (Kat did you get yours I sent to you on your cell phone?) of pictures.
Ohhhhhh, this was a pure delight. Meeting both Seth and Jason Lutes. Both were extremely sweet and their talent just glows from them. Very very nice men and I LOVED watching them draw. I told David I have a girl crush on Seth. I don't know if it's the glasses and the hat or the drawings ;)
Gaiman's look, the acceptance speech and the acceptee's t-shirt said it all. Priceless. Another fun year at the Eisners.
Now to see if I can get some sleep...

Gary Oldman AND Robert Downey, Jr!!? I would've had to decide which one to throw my panties to, and who to toss my bra at.
