Re: Issa Live 2012!

Terri,
I went back and shot the entire show Sunday morning when there were no people milling around. I can't post them from my camera 'til I get home, but it'll be a pretty big thread.

Re: Issa Live 2012!

Love ya Matt! I stopped feeling sorry for myself for not being there when I realized I just wasn't physically up to the trip yet, but my heart wants instant gratification! Big warm group hugs to all

Re: Issa Live 2012!

This weekend I met legends!!!!! I strode among giants! I wandered down the aisles of God-Given talent!!

I take that last one back. Yes, they are talented. But they work hard on their skill and talent doesn't come from within but hard work and dedication does and that's what these people exude!!!

I am forever blessed to be among these friends.

Oh, and Allan was there. He's ok too!!

(He's a flaming wonderful guy as if you guys didn't know already)

Re: Issa Live 2012!

Holy Toledo and anywhere else you can think of in the world! I can not begin to put in words what a fantastic show, group of people and incredibly generous sharing of talent, skills, technique and tools I just experienced!!!! And that was an attempt not to have such a run on sentence. My family was able to drive over to see the show and just loved it and really enjoyed all the crazy scratchers too! Of course they had a pretty good idea of crazy since I do that scratchy thing also . I'm still feeling a bit speechless at how wonderful the people and art is! After getting caught up on some sleep perhaps I can stop blathering and focus on something specific like uploading photos. . . thanks to everyone there that shared! I feel much more comfortable with asking for assistance now!

Re: Issa Live 2012!

I got home about an hour ago. Winding down, but still jazzed (although I think a nap is in order). I have much to digest mentally - ideas, techniques, special moments, friendships!! It was wonderful to meet people I had only known virtually and to put names/faces to their art.

It's really hard to put into words what a fantastic experience it has been. Seeing all that gorgeous (and extremely varied) scratchboard work in one place was magical. Knowing that we're on the cusp of something big in terms of getting this art form recognized is pretty much mind boggling.

You will NOT be disappointed if you are able to attend next year's event!!!

Oh, and meeting Allan was an experience in itself . . . worth the price of admission.

Re: Issa Live 2012!

I tell you what. I can't wrap my head around all of this.
The People, the art, the laughs, the beauty of this state, the weather, the food, the scratching demos, the lobby sessions, the road trip sight seeing.
My mind is jello.
Harold, Angela and I are all alone.
We are so wiped out from all the last few days of the most awesome-est experiences....we are so tired.....so drained.....there's only one thing we can do.....I guess we'll just head off to our rooms and try to sleep






HA HA HA!!!!!!!! HELL NO! We are down in the lobby scratchin' scratchin' SCRATCHIN!!!!!! This party aint over there's more boards left!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harold said all you guys ought to be ashamed of yourselves for leaving us all alone!!!!

Probably not, but I bet he can knock out an awesome drawing of one in about an hour!!


BTW, I don't think it's been mentioned yet, but Rich Schafermeyer videotaped all the demos and they'll be available on YouTube after he has time to edit them. So if you weren't there, you can still see what happened at the workshops. And if you were there, you can still see what happened at the workshops! I found myself watching the little monitor on his camera to get a better view, so I'm sure the videos will reveal many things we didn't see at the time.

Thank you Rich! This is no small task.

Thank you Rich (and Sheba thanks you through inter-dimensional communication.) If you do dvds, dibs on the first!

Yes, big vote of thanks to Rich for that. He's a darn nice bloke too.

Two more full days to go in the States. Bummer. I'll have to do some scratching to fill the void!
