The Art of Austen Mengler - Supanova 2013 by LordNetsua The Art of Austen Mengler - Supanova 2013 by LordNetsua
Had a real blast exhibiting at the Brisbane and Adelaide Supanova Pop Culture Expo conventions this year. 

I met a lot of fans and crazy cosplayers, made some friends, sold a lot of prints, met some inspiring industry people; including John HigginsMichal DutkiewiczColin WilsonAdam Nichols and  Tom Taylor to name a few, and met some real inspirations of mine; including Ashley Wood and most notably George R. R. Martin, the creator of Game of Thrones himself.

I even managed to get all 6 of my Game of Thrones fan artwork illustrations signed by him, saying he enjoyed them and calling me a sick puppy in the process! Can't ask for much better than that.

I'm so humbled and still a little overwhelmed by all the happenings recently. For someone like me who spends a lot of time freelancing, drawing and painting in my little bat cave in little ol' Perth, the last two weeks have been pretty crazy and really worthwhile. Thanks so much to everyone involved, I'll surely be doing many more cons next year!

Cheers guys, thanks for all the comments, watches, faves and likes, and have a great holiday and New Year if I don't catch you before then :)

- Austen
