Over the course of the last year, I've been experimenting with filmmaking and photography and may start putting it out there in a real way at some point. I'm enjoying it for what it is right now which is mostly experimentation. Originally, this was supposed to be a test of some new equipment but after going through the footage, I thought there was enough to put together a short profile of Kristina Carroll. Since I was just asking her questions about what she was doing prior to deciding to go to School of Visual Arts, the film led to her describing how she eventually made her way to New York City from Montana via acting school prior to her decision to become an illustrator.
Kristina will have a table at the upcoming Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! event in Kansas City from May 9th through the 11th and will also be on a panel called 'Fantastic Women' where they will be discussing what it means to be a woman in the male dominated Science Fiction and Fantasy Art illustration business. Here is also a recent interview she did about that same topic.
If you visit SFAL, stop by the booth! We'll both be hanging out, drawing and chatting it up.
