This panel took place on the main stage at SFAL on Sunday morning. It was the day after the live awards show at the Midland Theatre where our friend James Gurney was awarded the Spectrum Grandmaster Award. Dwight and I were both there to see James win, heard his very gracious speech, and couldn't have been happier that he was being honored.
Jim Gurney is not only an outstanding artist and writer with a huge body of work, but a teacher and lecturer who remains fiercely supportive of the fantastic art community. It was nothing short of moving to see him get a standing ovation from a room full of his peers (many of whom are also fans).
Oh! And a special thank you to everyone who attended the panel. I know Jim felt the love, and the Q & A portion was exceptional, folks.
