Events for October

Even though I am sculpting my fingers off there are a couple of notable things going on that I will be participating in this month. As the Fates would have it - they are both occurring the same day.

First up is the monthly meeting for A Bunch of Short Guys on Saturday Oct. 24th from 10am to noon. ABOSG is a Dallas-based non-profit animation guild established to foster a community of world-class artists and storytellers. The group provides an educational resource for the local community of entertainment professionals, educators and students, helping visual creators pursue career development.

This month they are having a panel on sculpting and have invited me to participate with other local sculptors to talk about our working methods, materials and the industries we work in. I am very excited about this opportunity.

Second is Reaper Artist Con going on all day Saturday Oct. 24th. This is generally a closed event that is a week-long workshop from Wenesday to Wednesday where the sculptors and painters meet to share techniques and tips and generally level-up. The Saturday in between is an open house where folks can come out and meet the pros, talk shop and other shenanigans.

So - I'll be splitting my time with the two events. If you are in the Dallas/Plano/Denton area pop by and check out one or both of these events.
