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!

What we brought home from Comic Con

-not in the pictures because I am hoarding them already are Chris Ware's exhibit catalog and Laura Park's Do Not Disturb My Waking Dream.

We bought books from-
Drawn and Quarterly
Last Gasp
Top Shelf
Society of Illustrators L.A.
Allen Spiegel Fine Arts
Mark Murphy
Buenaventura Press
Bud Plant Illustrated Books

What is Torch Tiger
New England Comics
Bongo Comics
and some small vendors who didn't have business cards...

We picked up a few books during the show and really lucked out on Sunday with some great exhibitor sales. One vendor said he'd throw in a box and the number of his chiropractor. HA!

Holy cow spots that is a lot of stuff. I want to see it. Where is it all going?

Sandy said...

Wow Kelly, you did goood. :) Love all the books. So glad you all had a great time. I loved seeing the photos of Tristan, the smile on his face says it all. It's well worth the lines to see a smile like that on a child's face. I didn't see any of yours but I'm sure they were there, I could tell from the writing. ;)

Thanks for sharing all of your experiences with those of us who couldn't go.

Wow, I literally want to crawl under and be blanketed by all these books. Bliss.... I think I need an intervention.
