The inaugural “Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!” event opened the doors to the public at 3:00pm on Friday, May 18. The artists at our Flesk booth included William Stout, Mark Schultz, Petar Meseldzija, Mike Mignola, Gary Gianni (on Saturday and Sunday) and Android Jones (on Friday and Saturday). The nice thing about this show was how throughout the three days we had a steady influx of people at our booth. We were never bored as there were typically two to four people in line for the majority of artists. This allowed for personal discussions without anyone feeling rushed. It was a good pace.
Here’s a batch of photographs around our Flesk booth, most of which were taken about an hour or two after the doors opened on that first day. The pictures of Gianni were taken on Saturday.
This is me being interviewed for Scifi4me.com. They had some questions about the show book featuring the five guests I put together. Besides screwing up and naming Iain McCaig twice and leaving out Android Jones when naming the five artists, I think the rest went as well as it could for it being my first camera interview. (I’ve been avoiding live interviews for 10 years.)
Here I am during the same interview. Jonathan Leveck ran out with my camera and got some shots while we were talking. The “Crowbot” banner artwork is by Jon Foster and welcomed people as they would walk inside.
Jonathan ran around with my camera and got this grab shot of me. It’s nice to see. After ten years of shows I finally got a few pictures of myself. I typically take all the pictures and don’t have many of myself. I prefer being behind the lens. Behind me is our new updated logo that Randy designed.
I walked over to Jim Gurney’s booth to say hello. When I got there his wife told me he went over to my booth to do the same. I returned to find him talking with Petar Meseldzija (left) and William Stout (right). This is quite the trio of painters who are masters at using the traditional approach.
Part 3 of this series which will include more “Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!” pictures and commentary is coming soon.
