I attended the Creative Ink Festival a short while back and was so moved I went home the first night wanting to give back. I painted this. It took a little longer than I expected because I always think a project will take 10 mins~2 hours max...5 hours later, voila! Beaut! (The next day I was preeeettty tired.) Still impressed! Thanks everyone! I had a blast!
I went to a lot of talks and heard some great tales of success and the road one travels; tricks of the trade, funny stories, sound advice, words of encouragement; inspiration, and software advice; warm smiles abound! Everything you want in a hotel wing full of new friends.
Here are some of the faces who brought ideas, insight, planning and stellar presentation to the mix. Thanks! Time well spent.
As you can see, I got better as the conference went on. :D Hurray! Next time I'll draw the conference backwards! So it's fair for everyone.
This is what I gave Sandra Wickham, the director, for her birthday on the second day of the conference.
