Fabric Study

In my drawing class we are concentrating on value at the moment. This was done using vine charcoal. You can lay down thick areas of charcoal then use a dry eraser to lift or reduce the dark value depending on how much pressure you apply to the charcoal.

Saturday Keynote

Elisa Camahort was such a joy to listen to. Upbeat and inspirational I could have sat there for a couple of hours listening to her.

My first panel discussion

This was the first thing of this sort I have ever been to. When done well they are highly inlightening as I found this one to be. We agree to disagree was very liberal in tone. That the two panelist Ruby Sinreich and Chris Rabb echo my mostly liberal views a conservative voice would have added more of a give an take to the talk. But insightful thought is always fun to listen to. The moderator Dan Conover was one of the people I talked to at CS.

Greensboro NC

Snapped this photo after leaving ConvergeSouth...I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I'm not much of a schmoozer and find social situations a little bit of a challenge. But I didn't throw up on anyone so all in all not a bad time for me. Thanks to Dave Slusher for speaking so highly of the event. Will try and go next year.
