This week we look forward to the reveal of an Arthurian piece from Liz Danforth at the Imaginative Realism Convention, explore the process Drew Tucker uses to bring his art to life, and hear about the potential for storytelling through Sorcery with Senior Game Designer, Mike Haught.
Arthurian Art Reveal at IX
Tonight is a special Arthurian Legends reveal from Sorcery artist Liz Danforth at the Imaginative Realism Convention(IX). IX is the world’s largest exhibition of original imaginative realist art and what could be a better venue to showcase the art of Sorcery?! Liz considers this piece the “most complex and ambitious painting” she’s ever done in her life. A written Q&A and photos will be posted this evening as part of her reveal, alongside images of IX on Sorcery's Instagram account, with a video interview to follow in the near future. If you are local to Reading, Pennsylvania, come by the show, meet Liz Danforth, and see her work in person! The IX showcase begins at 8:00 pm EDT. More information about Liz Danforth’s work can be found on her Patreon blog.
Sorcerers on the Scene!
Sorcerers have descended on IX, and with several prominent community members in attendance, you might be able to even get an impromptu game of Sorcery in (just make sure you brush up on Centerpoint's Death by 1,000 Cuts list before challenging him to a game!). Additionally, on Saturday, Mike Servati from Collector Arthouse will be in attendance to provide fan coverage, including some special showcases! You can find his content on the Collector Arthouse YouTube channel.
