Art Appreciation

I met Kristina Carroll on a long-ago visit to New York City, through our mutual friends Elaine Lee and Michael Kaluta.

These days I see her more often at conventions like Boston’s Arisia (where it was honor to reward her one of the show’s top prizes) and on her annual visits to Portlandia.

She loves working in real old-school (non-digital) media. Her elegant painterly works often feature the sorts of shiny rich gold that we digital painters envy.

She has been the driving force behind the marvelous Months of Love and Fear for 4 remarkable years:

Art Appreciation

I met Zelda Devon in San Diego at the San Diego Comic Con when I remarked on the (truly remarkable) tentacle stippled subtly on her shoulder.

She looked askance as she was wearing long sleeves at the time. Of course, I’d seen her bare-armed earlier, but I admit I enjoyed a moment of seeming clairvoyance.

Back then, she lived and worked with her partner in NYC, often for ad agencies and always working to better her craft.

Since then, she’s relocated to LA. where her focus is the Entertainment business.

After all, there’s no biz like show biz!
