At Artist’s Row.  Some good looking stuff. Ash Man looks good. All digital paint inside. Bri Art is all water color and paint characters.

Larry Cathey, Heycat Comics, is painting his ink! #OldSchool

Artist Row is light on big names this year. But lots of self published and local.

Just completed a 45 minute interview with the man who first painted almost all the Dragonlance characters (like Raistlin, Sturm and Tasslehoff) and Drizzt from Forgotten Realms. Can’t wait to write it up.

On our way to Strong Female Characters panel. We should have video of that whole thing for you on our YouTube channel tomorrow.  (EDIT. Here it is: http://bookgateway.com/?p=6376 )

Panelists are talking about strong female characters, but very little discussion about how many of these women are overly sexualized. They talked X-Men, like Psylock and Storm, but nothing about them wearing clothes.

I wonder: Is flipping the script to have a woman save a man equality or the same error but from the opposite end of the spectrum?

Waiting on WWE’s Roman Reigns. Our own David Mason is in line with a question. Can’t wait for that!

So cute that a kid has a question. (Does he know this is entertainment?)

admin September 26, 20151:06 am

Q: Which Diva is most under rated?

A: I think they are all under rated. I know what it feels like first hand.
