Two days ago I attended Spectrum Fantastic Art Live. It was a lot to take in all at once. My mind was blown at every turn I made. As if the names alone wasn't exciting enough to find out about, while I was walking around I thrown back by all the painting, drawings, sculptures, and what ever else that I recognized. At one point I would walk by and think, "Whoa! I've been fallowing this artist since I was a teenager." Then I would continue walking and I would see a painting that had inspired me down one path and my jaw would drop again. These works of arts are way better up close in personal. So if you can't tell I had a lot of fun in Kansas City last Saturday. I only wish I was able to attend all three days it was going on, especially since the Batmobile was there last night and I missed it. I also missed out on the award show which I would have loved to have attended as well. I promise, if they do this again next year and I'm here I'm going to be better prepared for it.
With new inspiration and a renewed drive for my art I have decided to challenge myself. I'm planning on doing something that will fill my portfolio, but also improve my skill level. I am going to try and get 100 portraits done by August 21st. I'm going to do 50 of them digitally and 50 of them with traditional media. I think this should be a lot of fun. It will definitely be a challenge, I still have other responsibilities in life, but life's a journey and I'll mold it the way I see fit.
