Our Nevada Museum of Art offers a variety of classes and when I saw a Fantasy Creature Drawing class, I had to check it out. Taught by a full-time fantasy artist living in Reno (whose name I will fill in later) I was enthusiastic. He left me with a great process of testing out elements to use for creatures not of our world and I use those techniques in much of my work.
The fun thing is that characters from my twenty-something imagination were still living in my fifty-something mind waiting for their turn to be recognized. I love these guys.

I think it’s true. We never escape our imagination and all who live there.
