Artist Grasiela Rodriguez, the SGV Comic Book Expo & Art Exibition, & a WIP View of My Dragon...

Grasiela Rodriguez invited Alex and I to the San Gabriel Valley Comic Book Expo.  She's a talented comic artist and painter as well as an exemplary chalk artist.  Check her out at her facebook page here and her website here.  She also helped to plan the event!  She is inspiring as a sweet and energetic person as well as as a multi talented artist.  The Expo had a lot of talented artists and interesting panels.  I went to one on the forgotten treasures of Mexican comics, but if I get a chance I'll do a separate post on that.  There were fun art activities for the kids upstairs as well as a SGV Comic Art Exhibition, the SGV Expo is done, but I believe the SGV Comic Art Expo runs until August 10th.  For more information, please visit their facebook page here.

Here is an updated work in progress view of my dragon painting.  Now the sky has a bit more drama.  I thought I was almost done with the sky, but Alex noticed that I forgot the sections underneath the dragon's wings...  So, while I have made progress on the sky, it turns out I have quite a bit to go...

It sounds like a wonderful EXPO ...

I love the dragon and must show it to Rose when she comes to my house tomorrow, I know she will say ' oh, cute'
Cute is now her favorite word ... LOL

I love book fairs. Here where I live doesn't have many. In typical parties we have book fairs, but they are very small and aren't as beautiful as this you went!
