Warren Chang Painting From the Live Model
Terry Dodson stopped to sketch this windmill during our visit to Schiedam, The Netherlands in October 2013. Our group consisted of Mark Schultz, Terry and Rachel Dodson, Jim Reid and myself (John Fleskes). Terry keeps a sketch pad and art supplies handy while traveling in case he sees a subject worth recording. This finished sketch can be seen in Terry’s new collection "Masquerade" available summer 2014.
Helpful Bear Productions has produced a second video highlighting the artists who appeared at the third Spectrum Fantastic Art Live event last May. Over 200 artists exhibited on the show room floor.

Be a part of Spectrum Fantastic Art Live by attending this event that celebrates the fantastic art and its creators. SFAL is a fantasy-focused art fair, in which creators can display, share and sell originals, prints, sculpture, crafts, toys and more to an audience of fans and peers. There is something for everything, including presentations, panels, displays, portfolio reviews, workshops, educational opportunities and the Spectrum 21 awards ceremony. In short, our goal is to honor the artists and put on a fantasy art convention that anyone is welcome to attend and enjoy.
