I have nothing but the best helpers when preparing for IX
Our IX weekend in its entirety. This includes everything from clothes, costumes, art, and my entire Showcase table set up. It can be a little scary to have it all on the plane, but it is cheaper than shipping.
When in Allentown you will find Peeps and Peeps sculptures
There was a really great tribute to William O'Connor at IX this year. I had assumed I would never get to see Bill's work again but this weekend I got to have a look at several of his amazing paintings again.
Came away with an original by David Thorn Wenzel. I have loved his work for many years. This will be a prized piece of the collection!
My Showcase table this year. Similar to last year, but different.
My and this fire plug spent some time together in the Urban Sketch Workshop (more on this on Friday!)
Some of the Magic Artist Proof sketches that I did at the Showcase
A very cool creature visited my at my table
AND a couple more Magic Artist Proof sketches
Somehow I did not remember to take picture of the Showcase until it was over Saturday night and I was almost completely packed up
If you want you can imagine and see these as everyone setting up at the Showcase
I tend to arrive late for set up since it is quick for me and then I am out before many
Some crazy sculpting was going on all weekend
I think this was my school
I helped out again this year during tear down. If we all help out then it goes much quicker. Fourth floor has always been my preferred floor to tackle. This year I was needed on fourth and second. I wonder what Illuxcon 2019 will have in store for all of us...
That's all for another exciting Wednesday on the blog, see you back here on Friday! Until then...
