Re:Cap and ESCAPE!

I’m still catching up after having been sick, so I figured I’d do a bit of Cap recap. While I missed most of the convention due to the start of the epic con crud, I did manage to do my panels and had some pieces in the art show.

This was my first go at the annual artist’s challenge. CapriCon's theme this year was "Escape". Every year, the art show sets up an artist's challenge, where the participating artists have to create a work that includes a goat (the convention mascot) and three of a list of theme-related items. This year's theme led to the following items:

A) A pennyfarthing
B) The Birdman of Alcatraz
C) A straightjacket
D) A tunnel
E) A glider

I picked A, C, and E...along with the requisite goat, and found appropriate vintage images for each. I made poly shrink charms of the images and added these to a copper chain, along with various brass and pewter trinkets that fit the theme, plus various glass and other baubles. While the charm bracelet didn't win the challenge prize, it did find a new home during the art show's silent auction.
