Back home from @SFantasticAL, Spectrum Fantastic Art Live. 

My expectation were absurdly high. And I'm in no way exaggerating to say they were blown away, destroyed, absolutely devastated the first evening. It was, hands down, the best

I split a booth with Justin and we had the good fortune to spend some time with some of the most brilliant artists working today. It was humbling, inspiring, and exhilaratingly fun.

Unfortunately, we didn't take too many pictures. Here's a quick look at some of our time. 

Erin caught some Instagram action.

I love doodling in books. For real.
Gives me something to do at the booth.

Tragically, the only shot of the booth we got. Wahhh...

Kansas City style.

The Spectrum awards!

Justin won a Silver!

Two of my large drawings from Menagerie sold!

Justin, Paul Bonner, and me.
I'm not at all kidding: we were seriously talking about motorcycles.

I loved SFAL. An inexpressible thanks to the Fenners. Without you guys, there'd be none of this. 

Thank you from the bottom of my fantasy loving, monster drawing heart.

Thank you so much for the wonderful post, Cory. I wasn't able to attend so reports like yours help me experience it on a teeny tiny level.

Wonderful reading your post as it brings up so many great memories from the weekend. It was great seeing your work. I recognized right away that it was work I had seen in Flight before, truly lovely stuff. As a Kansas City resident I want to thank you profusely for coming to our town and being a part of this. I'm crossing my fingers that it will happen again and if it does I hope you'll be a part of it.

Had to laugh as I looked at your pictures. In the one of the bar at the awards ceremony, I am just behind (over the shoulder) of the guy talking to Stephan Martiniere, facing the guy crossing his arms. There is a little white dot on my collar that from the distance makes me look like I am a priest, dog collar and all. LOL!
