World Fantasy Convention

Greg and I will be at the World Fantasy Convention this year. I'm looking forward to this even more than usual. The artists line up is fantastic. Two artist guests, John Jude Palencar and Gary Gianni. Plus, Greg, Charles Vess, John Picacio, Mike Dringenberg, Gary Lippincot and others. And, the Franks from Worlds of Wonder and the Fenners from Spectrum. It should be a particularly rich art environment.

I am not scheduled for any panels but I hope to attend the following:

Fri 1:30 PM-2:30 PM: John Jude Palencar

Fri 4:30 PM-5:30 PM: Interpreting REH's Fiction in Art:

Artists who have illustrated Robert E. Howard and other heroic fantasy present and discuss their work. What are the appeals and challenges of working with Howard's worlds and characters?
(Gianni, Palencar, Picacio)

Sat 11:00 AM-Noon: Gary Gianni

Sat 3:30 PM-4:30 PM: Contemporary Art and Fantasy Book Covers

Does a successful 21st century fantasy cover necessarily have to be representational? What influences the degree of representation in a cover?
(Anders, Gianni, Givens, Palencar, Vess)

Sun 2:30 PM-3:30 PM: Art in the New Millennium: What is an Original?
With computer technology and a new generation of good artists using these tools, what constitutes an original?
(Dringenberg, Palencar, Picacio, Snellings-Clark)

In celebration of Robert E. Howard, the image above is from Greg's recent paintings for Conquering Sword of Conan. He'll have some of these paintings on display in the art show.

Once I played silkroad, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have silkroad gold. He gave me some sro gold, he said that I could buy silkroad online gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some silk road gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap silkroad gold to anyone who want.
