So 2015 was all medical problems. Wow. Never saw hospitals and doctors so much! Never had medical problems (of that magnitude) before... Never had stitches or broken bones or whatever. So it was all an experience. Seems to be as over as it can be, though. Still on some meds, but no big deal.
I have NOT been doing any card art... so anyone interested in more of that won't be getting any news.
I did do another SmArt School! Seriously, a GREAT program that is on-going: Online hard-core fantasy illustration with the best guys in the business, online, with some great fellow students! I took a class with Dan DosSantos as instructor. He was AMAZING! (And I say that after having already had the fantastic Donato Giancola as an instructor.) I took the class with two lovely fellow artists and IMC alumni: Diana Stein and Judy Riggenbach. We learned so much and worked hard and had a great time!
I'm doing a Showcase Table at IlluxCon, in PA, in October, this year (2016). I haven't often been in that area, so it'll make a nice trip for me since I'm definitely doing some sight-seeing while I'm there.
I have pro-badge for ComicCon, but I'll see if I am up to facing the crowds. No booth this year, but do stop by and say 'Hi' to Diana Stein in the Fantasy Illustrator section!
I'm hoping to have some new art, but it's coming slowly.
Oh, and had an insane thing happen recently.. a Magic Card painting that I sold about 20 years ago was put up for sale on Ebay, and a lovely friend told me about it. It was "Lotus Petal" which was a popular card from day one due to the whole Magic Lotus thing. It ended up selling for $26,700.00!!! Crazy, huh? I guess I should have held on to the painting, but who knows about whether something will still be popular in 20 years? Paintings need to go to a person who wants the painting, and I sold it to someone I knew, so that was cool enough for me.
