I met one of my favorite/inspirational artist's today!! (Brom)
I've been a fan of his for years now (and have several sketchbooks of mine, that contain studies of his work) -- i still remember purchasing a deck of cards that he created (for TSR?) back in 1995 -- that i still have and refer to today!
anyway, he had a book signing event at a local Barnes and Noble -- and i went there to meet him and get a copy of his latest book, 'Krampus' -- and we chatted for nearly 20 minutes about art, his life/career, etc. (very cool guy to talk to!)
..and it turns out that we live near each other!! :)
