I would say that my favorite part of the convention is walking through the artist alleys and find awesome artists to follow. Here are a few that I love!

Katie Cook (blog/shop)

She is the nicest person ever! At the convention, she sold mini paintings, and she even did custom mini paintings. Without hesitation, I asked her to paint Alice. I follow her on twitter, and it turns out she’s funny, too! My kind of artist.

Daniel & Dawna of Steam Crow (site/store)

I met Daniel at the convention. He was very proud of his designs, and he should be. One of the favorites is the “Viking on a Narwhal” (inspired by Game of Thrones). Unfortunately, he didn’t have it in the postcard sizes. I really love his style.

Elisabeth Holmes of The Naughty Rabbit (shop)

This girl is around my age, and she had a brillant idea to create popular fiction characters into rabbits, inspired by her own pet rabbit at home. I thought it was genius! I wish there was more work in her shop, but she told me that school is ruling her life right now. I hope she is able to add more over the summer.

Monocle Mustache Project (kickstarter)

This thing is amazing! It makes me laugh everytime I put it on. And others around me too.

Shepard Fairey at the Black Book Gallery

Standard

One of my favorite things to do in L.A. was visit art galleries. Gallery 1988 had amazing artists and theme shows every month. We were quite obsessed with them before we left. That sort of gallery appeals to me greatly because they fill a niche of good but inexpensive art for our generation.

Friday was the first time we have visited an art gallery in Denver since we’ve been here — I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year. One of our favorite artists, Shepard Fairey, was showing new art at the Black Book Gallery.

Shepard Fairey shared the show with Jim Houser and Even Hecox. Hecox may be a new favorite of mine (first picture).
