Insomania art weekend = AWESOME!

With the holiday prep and my wonderful (!!) mom visiting I don't have much time to put up a post (which is an EASY trade-off), but I couldn't let TOO much time go before posting SOMEthing about my weekend in San Francisco and the inspiration I found by attending the "Insomania" artist workshop/conference put on by the amazing guys and gals at Massive Black Studios and the Concept Art message boards.

The painting above is a piece I did during one of the life model sessions (this took about 45 mins). There were countless models all weekend but I mainly went to the digital workshops. I'll post more next week, but for now, here's a link to some AMAZING photography by Phil Holland.

I'm so glad you had such a good time! Wouldn't it be sweet if everyone who took a portrait of this woman ALL sent her copies and then she could have portraits of herself up everywhere in her apartment! Really its a beautiful drawing. Thanks for posting! p.s. leg warmers, office video, digital camera, nails & hammer... say that over and over and over again so you don't forget!I want Laini or you to put up your big jazz painting in my kitchen-its going to get center stage- can you believe it? I've hired a very famous jazz musician to attend the unveiling.
