Everything you see has been hand painted; I do not make prints and I rarely make the same thing twice. I have been creating paintings like these since 2004. I emphasize quality over speed more than anything else, focusing on straight lines, vibrant colors, and accurate details.

“Radio Cult: The worst band you’ll ever love! These guys and gal don’t simply play music, they have the most fun possible doing it! And YOU are invited to join in! Seriously, do you play guitar, bass, or drums? Do you sing? Let them know and they’ll probably let you sit in with them at their next show! Even if you don’t know any of their original music, the band plays hundreds of cover songs too (mostly from the 70s, 80s, and 90s). They treat every show with the seriousness of a high-school house party when someone’s parents are out of town. They’re just as goofy in real life as they appear to be in their music videos, comic book stories, and Saturday morning cartoon. After recording five albums and playing well over 1000 shows together at dozens of conventions, casinos, parties, events and festivals as well as hundreds of bars, concert halls and other music venues across the country and throughout Europe, you’d think they’d have gotten better. Nope. They’re still the same fun-loving fools that they’ve always been, with silly smiles on their faces as they sing about cats and monsters and stuff…and we love them for it!”
We are the good guys!

Greetings programs! I’m an artist that practices both fine and fan art. I specialize in traditional illustrations, and in particular portraiture. This fine art is then extended into fan art and specifically into fan casting. My booth will feature high quality limited prints of many of my highly ambitious imaginings. I have a focus on the many 80s properties I grew up with, everything from movies to arcade games. Framed originals of the prints will also be available to view up close and I will be working on a piece live, welcoming anyone to watch.

We have full contact jousting & archery tournaments along with musical acts, comedy acts, games & vendors. We also have a youth & grown-up summer camp & Celtic Festival.
I graduated from the University of Richmond with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Art in Studio Art. I’ve also earned a Master’s in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine from the University of Southern California. I currently work at a biotech company in San Diego.
Though my life is largely consumed by science, I still enjoy doing art in my spare time (including science art, which can by found on my other website here: www.amandakwieragaart.com). I’ve been teaching myself how to draw in Photoshop and am continually trying to improve my skills. I’m a huge fan of almost anything fantasy and science fiction – both of which largely inspire my art and current portfolio.
I’ve recently started participating in Artist Alleys at various local cons, so if you’re in the area, please stop by! I would love your feedback on my art and how I can continue to grow and improve in the future.
In summer of 2020 (while stuck inside due to the coronavirus pandemic), I launched my own science clothing brand – Carbon 14! This project has been something I’ve been wanted to do for a long time so, and I’m so excited that it has finally been realized! You can see the store at www.carbon14collections.com.
