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 (or What I Bought at San Diego Comic-Con)

As far as swag goes, I have one Peanuts pin; a ton of Cowboys and Aliens t-shirts, posters and wristbands; Conan the Barbarian t-shirt and several postcards. David and I bought several books together from Sunday Press, Drawn and Quarterly, Fantagraphics and Bud Plant (he has those squirreled away in boxes. I'll post the picture when he takes it.) Tristan is the King of Swag and Buying Very Little (he spent $25 on an Adventure Time toy and $15 on the new Owly hardcover for his cousin.) I didn't spend a lot either. Here's what I bought:

From Mark Murphy/Murphy Design:


Cathie Bleck's Becoming
the Green Day Project
This Train: an Artist's Journal by Tony Fitzpatrick

Mark Murphy publishes and curates the best books on the planet. I always look for his publications because they are top notch. I love the artwork and I own every single thing he's ever published. Visit his site and make sure you check out his website and his blog (it's one of the best around.)

From EFA (Eidolon Fine Arts):

Barron Storey re: sex (an exhibit catalog for his upcoming show at Bert Green Fine Arts in L.A.
