A Monkey's Art Talk
-Luxor Room

11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Hosted By: Assassin Monkey
The main focus is to talk, and do so from the heart with a general direction towards art because I'm an artist. It's to share my perspective on what I've learned and experienced while making art, how I grew, and how this fandom was involved as well. Doing so with the intend to inform, help, motivate, inspire, or just share my view, struggles, and steps through art. This isn't just aimed at other artists, but everyone who's even thought or looked at art.

I've done this panel at BronyCon 2016, and skipped 2017, but had several requests during cons for it to return, so I'm trying to bring it back again.

For structure, I'll start explaining myself, who, what, how, etc. Proceeding into different flexible topics of Art Talk. e.g. how art is a universe we all collaboratively explore, where everyone is important to further discoveries.
Finally a Q&A where people can ask all sort of questions, whether art or personal ones.
