Taking Bad Advice
Originally posted at ShadowScript: The Art Blog of Angela R. Sasser
The convention chaos has died down, a crisp Autumn wind of change is in the air, and I've been more than a little introspective of late while I've been in the process of re-branding my business.  I admit to thinking lately 'why did it take me so long to discover what kind of artist I want to be?'
While I know that way lies the path to madness and pity parties, I recalled an experience I had years ago when I was fresh onto the notion of being a fantasy book cover illustrator.  It was a DragonCon of many years ago and I was eager to attend a panel on book cover illustration hosted by previously entrenched artists in the field, all of who were traditional painters.
What I got from that panel was an amazing unanimous barrage of bad advice.
The artists, who I will not name, basically said "kids" with their digital art were

Hey all! Happy new year! Just updating a few things for your use: 

I will be at the LTUE science fiction and fantasy symposium in February as a special guest artist. 
I will be showing in several gallery exhibits but I am waiting for the exact dates right now. 

My website has been sort of updated, I will update it more when I'm not feeling lazy. It's 

There will be a kickstarter happening within the next week for prints of my star dragon. 

Have an awesome week!

I don't know how I accidentally "lost you" on DA but I'm glad to find you again! Your work has certainly continued to improve and become even more interesting than before!

Oh my goodness. I remember way back in the early Elfwood days, when I was just getting into high school, your art was such an inspiration to me in those formative years. Especially the Corruption Series and the Birthstone Angel Series. I would spend hours trying to mimic your style and attention to detail. You were truly an inspiration to me and when I found that Elfwood had closed down, I thought I wouldn't be able to find you again. I am so glad that after 10+ years, you are still doing art and that I've found you again. You did and continue to do spectacular work. Thank you for that.
