Well, I just finished Darkover Con. In the past few years I have not done well sales wise there so I was only going to take 10 pictures...I ended up taking 18 pictures. Amazingly, this year was better than the last 3 or 4 combined. I sold 4 pictures, (Wolf Pair, Warm Wishes being one of them). So overall the art show went well and had several good artists and more art panels than in the past.
Steampunk, while not prominent in the art show, seems to be up and coming at Darkover. Last year there was a little of it in the dealers room, this year there was more and better in the dealers room, and programingg tracks! Maybe this will revitalize this convention!
