Back from Midsouthcon 32

On March 25, 2014, in Conventions, by Michael

Wow what a weekend. I am still trying to recover.

This last weekend Paul and I were the artist Guests of Honor at Midsouthcon 32. This was pretty significant because Midsouthcon was the first convention we ever attended. Back in 2004, we decided to attend because artist Todd Lockwood was the GoH. We had no idea what else would happen at that show.

What happened was we had found a new home. Back then the staff welcomed the two crazy brothers who sold elf ears and painted funny pictures into the fold and they never let us out. The served free beer and as many cheese puffs that we could consume. We stumbled into the game room and a couple of guys invited us to play a weird game called Munchkin (and would later invite us to their own convention of Hypericon – thanks Todd and Darrell ). We met so many people, sold some art, and enjoyed every part of the convention.

We have not missed a year since.

Paul and I have grown in our art careers since then and our adventures take us all over the states, but when the MSC crew asked us to be Guests of Honor, we couldn’t believe it. And on the 10 year mark – its like they planned it!

We knew the weekend would be fun, but it was more than that. It was a time of sharing stories, smiles and laughs, some booze and maybe even a karaoke song or two. It was a great weekend, and even though my body is still tired, my soul has been replenished.

I want to thank everyone on the crew, you made us all feel special. Danny, Carlin thank you for heading up everything, Eric thank you for being my Lita, Kelly thanks for setting up all the great panels, Jane,Barbara and Bonnie thanks for all your help in the art show. Everyone I shared a panel with – thank you for all the stories and sharing the table with me.  Sylvia thank you for making sure Laura and I had some great food even though we are silly vegetarians.

I know I am missing so many names, but I really loved this weekend and every one of you helped make it that way.

Thanks so much,

The Painting of the Wyvere Battle

On February 4, 2014, in Artwork, by Michael

This Fall I finished this painting while taking Larry Elmore’s painting class. I took (bad cell phone) photos of it as I went along. I just wanted to share the step by step process of painting it!
