Start with the boring stuff . On the Flight to AD I booked us into the row of 4 seats in middle of plane. All went to plan until a girl sat between Bec and I . Luckily I spied a vacant seat near by and I “suggested” that she may be more comfortable sitting over there . Plan worked so 4 seats between 3 . A long and boring 13 hr flight, 4 hours to kill in AD airport which is a pretty uninteresting place at midnight . Another 6 plus hour flight to Venice and Mike scored the jack pot, 3 vacant seats next to him . Arrived at 6 am in darkness to see the sun rise on a beautiful cloudless 3 degree day in Venice. A ferry ride to our hotel, a walk about and then Scott and Jennifer arrived . Drinks all round and lunch to follow . A quick siesta followed by another walk around the myriad of streets and alley ways in Venice . My expectation had been that it would be quieter and less people in winter but it was still packed . It seemed strange that the sun was out but you still needed a coat on . Bit of zzzz’s to catch up on so turning in for a early night .
I discovered Brom strange gritty art through Drak Sun, theTSR RPG. You can find it in two art books dedicated to his art as well as through some story book (quite good) he’s been writing and wchih are as dark as his paintings.
