Nerds ‘R Us VTCC Artists

While attending VTCC this past weekend, I wanted to get perspectives from 3 different artists. I managed to get an interview with each one but tried to keep it very brief so that I wouldn’t be keeping them from missing a sale or leaving their booths unattended. 

HUGE SIDE NOTE: These and the other many talented artists that rent a table at cons put a lot of time, effort, and emotion into their work.  Do not EVER walk up to a vendor’s table and snap photos of their artwork just so you can have their art for free! Don’t print out their artwork from your printer at home just so you don’t have to pay for it.  These are both examples of STEALING.  If you find their work online and want to download it to SHARE with others, that’s great but please, ALWAYS give credit to the artist and if possible a link to their site.  I cannot stress this enough! Thank you.
