I'm on two panels this Saturday at the Philadelphia Science Fiction Convention (oddly enough located in New Jersey). (Cory Doctrow & Boris Vallejo will also be there but, bizarrely enough, it doesn't seem that Tom Purdom, JR Blackwell, Jared Axelrod nor Michael Swanwick will be.) Anyhoo -- if you're around stop by and listen to me prattle on.
Sat 1:00 PM in Plaza II (Two) (1 hour)
I DON'T KNOW ART, BUT I KNOW WHAT I LIKE. (883)
[Panelists: J. Andrew World (mod), Kyle Cassidy, Heidi Hooper, David E. Christman]
How do you explain to someone what makes one work of art better than another? What are some of the things to look for when looking at a painting, sculpture, or photo
Sat 3:00 PM in Plaza IV (Four) (1 hour)
ILLUSTRATION, PHOTOGRAPHY, AND DIGITAL ART (882)
[Panelists: David E. Christman (mod), Kyle Cassidy, Alan Beck, Emily Tullis]
How are the arts of illustration and photography similar, and how do they differ (other than the obvious)? And how can they combine to create something new
In other news -- we've been eating more like they do at Castle Gaiman -- where there is nothing in the fridge but raw ingredients and everything is new. While I was there last Fabulous Lorraine was making a lot of food from the Appetite for Reduction cookbook. There were just containers of various things and when you got hungry, you'd just sort of mix and match. It seemed wonderfully healthy. I was a big fan of the carrot ginger dressing and the scarlet barley (both featured here).
I seriously think that there needs to be a "today's menu at Castle Gaiman" blog because it's always a marvelous eating experience.
