Update for 7 May 2014:  

:bulletgreen:  ConQuesT in Kansas City is coming right up at the end of May, and since this one is local for me I'll be there in person.  
:bulletgreen:  I'll also be at SoonerCon this year, which is near Oklahoma City near the end of June.  
:bulletgreen:  I'll be participating in the Art @ Work corporate challenge for creative types in Kansas City.  I'm one of two or three people who actually have the NERVE to submit fantasy art to this city-wide exhibition and competition.
:bulletgreen:  I think the next convention is gonna be DragonCon at the end of August.  While I won't be visiting in person, I will be sending them quite a bit of stuff for the show.


:bulletgreen:Here is the ART TO COLOR folder.  
:bulletgreen:  Coloring books Volume 1 and Volume 2 are also available for $15 each.  Shipping included in US/Canada.  

:new:  Now Volume 3 is available!

:star:Waiting List (this is a loooooong term list as you all know - maybe we'll do something in late summer 2014.  I feel like such a loser not getting back into art trades, but you all know how day job and commissions can just eat up all the time in the universe):

Hooray for convention season! I'm actually going to be hitting my first convention this summer as well as an artist/panelist, so it's pretty exciting. :D

Awesome; good for you!  

Yes, it is exciting to get up and talk shop with folks.  :D

Yeah, it's definitely a big step. My first into "officially" being at some of these conventions. Hopefully in a year or two I'll be able to start traveling around to other cons.

Are you going to be sending stuff in to Convergence again this year? I got 2 great prints of yours last year from there :3

Might do, might do.  I've not been as organized this year as I would like.  Real life has been rather underfoot.  I will check my contact list and see if I still have time to get my Convergence stuff together.
