Originally posted on my Patreon blog.

I'm back from JordanCon and what a sweet convention it was!  I got to meet old friends and make some new ones (welcome to any new Patrons who found me there!).  For those who don't know it, JordanCon is a small, cozy convention here in Atlanta dedicated to all things Robert Jordan and Wheel of Time, while also celebrating fantasy literature as a whole.

This con represented a milestone for me as well because I decided to give my narrative fantasy art a chance!  I've never displayed it on its own before and I figured that JordanCon's focus on literature was an excellent training ground for doing so.  I was so happy my characters and art were well received!  I talked to many authors who instantly resonated with Oathbound and knew there was a deeper story behind it. THAT is exactly what I want to hear about this particular branch of my art!

The 'downside' of this was that after talking about characters, I wanted to run home and write!  I'm fueled up with inspiration after the con and can't wait to see what comes with that injection of motivation.

However, I did not abandon my Ladies, either!  While my Fantasy work is still waiting in the wings as another path I plan to pursue in the future, the Ladies of the Months also had their own magnificent spread in the Art Show.  This is the first time they have all been displayed together in a space and I am SO proud of them!  My lovely brainchildren!

I also got to be a panelist alongside some of my favorite folks, including Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Amanda Makepeace, Ariel Burgess, and Melissa Gay.  I'm fairly sure we could chat about art and advice all day long if given the chance and unlimited time!  I've posted a few resources online from the Women in Illustration and Navigating Patreon panels, if anyone wants to check those links out for further reading, even if they were not able to attend.

Now, I'm back home and there's a little over ONE WEEK left till the Ladies' coloring book Kickstarter.  There are so many loose ends to wrap up, so I'm off to wrangle them!

Thanks for your support and to any attendees who stopped by!  It was a blast.

More soon!  There are so many exciting things about to happen, you guys!

- Ang


Don't forget about the coloring book's Launch Party happening on Facebook right now!  I've just posted my first giveaway there today.  Come party the week away with me until the book goes live on KS!

It was a thrill to talk to you at DragonCon after reading your book Angelic Visions. You're so inspiring. What was the name of the book about the Fallen Angels you told me about???? I also love the angel print you gave me!!!!!

Hmmm I believe I may have told you about the Kushiel's Legacy series of books (about the land founded by angels in an alternate medieval fantasy France). The first book was Kushiel's Dart, to start with. It was wonderful to meet you too! Thanks for seeking me out to let me know you've enjoyed my work. It really makes an artist's day to hear they have inspired someone else.:)
