WTC Presents: CCEE Art Panel – Paint and Canvas vs Tablet and Stylus!


Presented by Geek Nation Tours

Join moderator Keith Callbeck for a spirited debate between traditional art and art in the digital age. The art panel, which took place at The 2015 Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, features a spectrum of digital and traditional artists who can speak to the pros and cons of each method and what has worked for them.

Covering topics as varied as artistic “flow,” monetizing physical art, preventing repetitive stress injuries, and how 4,000 pages of art board originals could be hazardous to your floor.
