I’m excited to be an Attending Pro at Norwescon 38, April 2nd through 5th. I’ll be exhibiting original woodcut prints in the Art Show and participating in a number of panels. Please note, I will have both framed and unframed prints available at the Art Show including one-of-a-kind hand colored prints, and standard editions. All art sales at Norwescon will be handled by Norwescon staff.

Creativity & Disabilities
Fri 12:00pm-1:00pm – Cascade 10
Whether your problems are physical or psychological, there’s no denying that being creative and creating art is difficult to almost impossible when a disability stands in your way. Come learn how different artists and writers work with, past, or through their personal disabilities and limitations to create their art.

The Business of Art
Fri 5:00pm-6:00pm – Cascade 12
There’s more than talent to making a living as an artist. Health insurance, taxes, marketing, organization, selling yourself, portfolios — where do you find the time to do all that and still make art?
Rob Carlos (M), Liv Rainey-Smith, Bryan Syme, Jeff Sturgeon
No panels today!
Defeating Artist’s Block
Sun 11:00am-12:00pm – Cascade 12
The blank canvas can strike fear into us all. How do we break past that stuckness when we don’t know where to start — or what to do next?
Margaret Organ-Kean (M), Bryan Syme, Julie Dillon, Laurie Noel, Liv Rainey-Smith
Inks and Blocks
Sun 12:00pm-1:00pm – Cascade 12
The computer printer was invented in the 1950s, but we’ve been printing inked images on paper for well over a millennium, with techniques that are still in use today. Why do we continue to use this literally ancient approach… and how can you do it too?
Margaret Organ-Kean (M), Liv Rainey-Smith, Mimi Noyes
Handling Your Online Image As An Artist
Sun 2:00pm-3:00pm – Cascade 12
How do you create effective online presence? How and where should you sell work online? What social networking tools should you be using, and how? What are best practices for building a fan base and then interacting with them?
Nicole Dieker (M), Liv Rainey-Smith, Laurie Noel, Margaret Organ-Kean
