I was supposed to write this post a week ago, but I’ve been recuperating from the amazing time I had at the DragonCon. You see, DragonCon to me and my family is like a trip to Disney for some people. The cosplay, the people, the pictures, the panels, the celebrities, the art, the fun, the fun… and THE FUN. Yes, we’re sci-fi and anime geeks, and proud of it. We’re already making plans for next year. I may be doing cosplay for DragonCon 2014. I found myself shopping for corsets the other day, so I think this is gonna really happen. I’ll keep you posted. 😉
Tom Wood and his zombie friends at DragonCon 2013
Now one of the highlights of the DragonCon was seeing my friend, Tom Wood. If you’re a fantasy art fan and you don’t know who he is, you’re missing out.
As many of you know, I’m a lover of dragons, and Tom has the unique gift of bringing dragons to life in his art work. So yeah, I’m in love with this man. And when you see his art, you’ll see why.
I showcased this piece on my fan page last year around October and it received a lot of feedback from the male species, which I totally expected. *giggle* This is one of my favorites, Hot Zombie. It can also be purchased as a sculpture.
My pièce de résistance is the art piece titled “Unleashed”. The title alone has a lot of meaning to me. I will be purchasing both the art print and sculpture. Why I like it? It reminds me of the battle between Gandalf and Balrog. Yes, I know. Balrog was a giant fire demon, but in my demented mind, I replace all villains with dragons. *grin* Crazy, I know. That’s how much I love dragons.
I know you want to see more, so why don’t you swing on over to Tom Wood’s website and get captivated by his wonderful fantasy art. http://www.tomwoodfantasyart.com/
Thank you, Tom, for feeding my addiction. 😀
This is Tom’s daughter, Emily, aka Hit Girl. There were several Hit Girls at the DragonCon, but Emily was the best!
I have a ton of DragonCon pictures to share with you guys. There are so many I have to split them up into different posts. I can’t wait for you to see them. 😉
