Lord Ggripptogg, a recently rediscovered Power Lords character design from Wayne Barlowe circa 1983.
Sketched at the booth today.
Here is what I got from Spectrum on Saturday~ There were more people this year. The big print is from Jasmine Beckett-Griffith. She was at Spectrum last year and I fell in love with her artwork. Plus she’s really sweet & cute. ♡ The little one is from Annie Stegg. It’s Thumbelina so I had to get it. She had the originals with her and they were gorgeous. My sister got several prints from her as well. The buttons are from Fiona Meng, she was such a sweetie and loved my sister and I. You can’t see them too well here, but they are beautiful.
Overall I had alot of fun~ I feel really lucky that Spectrum is happening so close to where we live. It’s such a unique art convention and there were some really amazing artists there. I loved seeing Virginie Ropar’s figures in person, she’s sooo amazing. Also seeing Marina Bychkova’s (enchanted doll) ball jointed dolls in person was amazing, they were lovely.
Man, Spectrum is always a blast. Here’s an obligatory swag pic, but my favorite part about it was seeing new work and meeting new illustrators. This time around it was also great to meet up with people who I know through social media, but haven’t necessarily met face to face.
I’m looking forward to being back in KC in a couple of weeks to start the Illustration Academy! I got to meet a lot of the TAD crew this weekend, and I’m beyond excited to go “back to school.”
