Rob Carlos
Rob Carlos

Rob started his art career working as a graphic designer for a printing company in Florida, playing D&D with friends and drawing and painting whenever possible. When that ended, he started selling prints on his website and was asked to do some paintings for the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time TCG, starting his time as a fantasy artist.

For years, Rob concentrated on illustrating for independent and small-press writers and musicians.

In 2007, Rob started showing his work at Norwescon, and other sci-fi/ fantasy conventions. Last year, Rob started down a new path, as the Art director for "Dragon" a PC-based RPG that allows you to play as the dragon in a fantasy world.

I got into MisCon several years ago (feels like a totally different world now) through my ex-husband and our roommate at the time. Meeting the MisCon crew at a cocktail party, I thought, "OK, these folks are freaky."

About Jeff Sturgeon

Tiffany Toland-Scott
Tiffany Toland-Scott

Tiffany Toland says she was "all but born with a brush in her hand." As a child, she always knew she wanted to be an artist and spent hours painting and drawing to increase her artistic skills. To this end, she dropped out of high school to focus more on her artwork, and she obtained a GED shortly after her sixteenth birthday.

For a short time she attended art school with an eye toward earning a degree in game design, but she quickly realized that it wasn't the life for her. Instead, she began promoting and selling her artwork on her own.

Her work has since been licensed for a variety of products and has been purchased worldwide.

Robin Walker
Robin Walker

Robin learned how to draw while in the sciences because basic skills and high standards were rarely taken seriously in art schools, as is still the case today. Art is generally perceived by art schools and the public as therapy or a way to socialize while one's hands are moving. The art trends of the 20th century have been seldom more then the sanctification of the inane. Do get her started on this topic.
