So another great GenCon came and went... had an awesome massage (even though it looks like the therapist was probing me).

But I did get two awesome treasures! Some may recognize the first original piece of art I picked up...

Image

And the second was a print but was pretty awesome in itself. Signed by Elmore and Mentzer (Frank and I hung out a few times venting about the state of RPGs today but that's a story for another day).

Very nice! I had considered buying some art from Doug Kovacs at GenCon but I couldn't decide what I would do with it or where I would hang it.

I bought some fantasy prints at GenCon years ago and still haven't found a place to hang them. (Quite awesome, actually -- pictures of WWI pilots riding dragons with machine guns mounted on them. I think they are called "Sopwith Dragon" and "Fokker Drake" or something like that.) They sit in my closet, hopefully not getting damaged.

Art is pretty awesome. I make it a point to get a few pieces of original/prints (always signed) every year that I go. I just moved so I haven't had a chance to hang anything yet. Also waiting to finish the basement and make the "gaming cave" where all these pieces can go.

One of my favourites is actually a TMNT sketch by Peter Laird. He's such a cool dude.

I think I recognize that from somewhere.

Big Iron: Let's try to get some gaming in next time around. I'm pretty sure I saw you at Gen Con in a hotel bar (with a sibling? Maybe? ) right before I went to a game however I was not DMing and had no idea who was playing , or I would have invited you.

Anyway gaming at cons is much more fun than being an untouchable artist.

Hey Doug, yah man I was with my sister at GenCon and two other buddies. I was only able to DM one game in the Hyatt lobby (with a casket of Dragonale btw.) ... and would have loved to play some DCCRPG. You guys planning to be at GenCon next year?

I've been in the art show for over ten years now.
So based on that I would guess : yes.
