I'm usually not one for journals, but I thought this might be a good reason to start one, especially after the wonderful weekend I had at GENCON 2013. For those of you not in the know (i.e. non-geeks), GENCON is an annual convention where everyone who's everyone in the gaming industry (RPGs, boardgames, video games, t-shirt designers, artists, writers, cosplayers, fans, etc.) converges on the fair city of Indianapolis in order to promote their fine merchandise and meet with their favorite industry personalities. It is also a place where struggling, hungry artists such as myself incessantly bug everyone from said gaming industry in order to have them look at our portfolios in the hopes of drumming up work. I'm happy to say that I received a lot of positive feedback from some very nice people (along with some tips on how to improve by even nicer people). 

Special thanks go to the fine folks at Words Without Master, Armor Class 10 t-shirts, Modiphius Entertainment, All Rolled Up, Legacy Game Systems, Moon Design Publications, Synndicus, Pagan Publishing, FASA Games, Castles & Crusades, Black Wyrm Publishing, On The Lamb games, Chaosium Inc., Frog God Games, and Eclipse Phase for their kind words. I hope I have the opportunity to work with you all in the very near future. 

Extra special thanks to Cubicle 7, Green Ronin Publishing, Onyx Path Publishing, Paizo, Palladium, and artist Drew Baker for taking the time to view my portfolio and giving me great advice on how to improve it. 

Also attended some terrific seminars given by artists and writers in the industry. I particularly enjoyed the one given by Mr. Hodgson (Cubicle 7) and Mr. Thomas (White Wolf Games) for aspiring full-time Illustrators. They provided some wonderful ideas regarding work ethic as well as how to improve upon my current portfolio. 

Oh, and I did some actual gaming here and there. 

All in all, a great weekend. I'm physically exhausted, but my spirit is invigorated. Time to write a lot of 'thank you' emails and hopefully do some business. 

All the best,
Andrew

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I'm a freelance fantasy artist whose inspiration to create originated from my love of video games, RPGs, science fiction/fantasy books & movies, comics, and all other things that some consider 'nerdy'. Critiques of my work are certainly welcome as I am always looking to grow as an artist.

Be sure to visit my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AndrewDefeliceIllustrator and say hello (or 'you suck', but I promise you I will be a lot nicer if you just say hi at first).
