I will come with a variety of items, I made, for sale! Carol will also be staffing the booth and doing character sketches! (Who doesn't love a goofy drawing of them self!)
The America's Best Western Hotel is booked full for that weekend (approx 500 guest?). They will be here attending the Professional Wrestling 10th Annual Induction Ceremony. The city is expecting hundreds more to follow the Classic Car Show, the Motorcycle Show, and the band "The Rogues".
Plus the street festival with vendors, artist, crafters, musicians, sales at the local shops in that area, etc... This could be BIG! Please pray for great weather!!!
And plan to come out, meet me, check out my inventory in person, and have a great time!!
Maybe I should make a few vinyl bound, bendable wrestler dolls? lol

He is really getting much better - at this rate he will be better then his mommy and his auntie in no time!
(But auntie has kept a camera in his fingers since he was a tot... so he has had a ton of practice!)
When I got home I did my "I spy" in the garden again, because I like the photographic progression of the spring growth.

Randy Elliot. He has done many other projects and is currently teaching art at a community college - can you imagine going to class to discover your teacher is an illustrator for comic books?
Met a sculptor, Paul Harding, who is a friend of a friend. So I introduced myself.
And I ran into an old friend Chris (who better "friend" me on Facebook link on bottom of page - lol). He made a replica of R2D2! It was complete with noises and movements - very cool. He is part of a Star Wars group that has very authentic looking customes and all sorts of star wars things. As you can tell by my photos, I liked their costumes the best!
You could look up two other illustrators who work is worth looking at - but they obviously didn't want to have conversations with people. I can't hate on them too much, their work is actually good: Christopher Uminga and Matthew J. Fletcher.

This little ballerina has moving arms and legs. She looks cute in a split. Or with help from a doll stand she can be posed in a few dancing positions.
