Day two was the first full day of the convention and it was packed full of great activities for all. This was a day full of presentations, artist interviews, portfolio reviews and painting demos from numerous artists. I tried my very best to stay at my booth but ended up running around the convention like a hyperactive kid in a candy store.
Iain McCaig gave a panel presentation in which he showcased concept art from all the iterations of John Carter of Mars. Seeing all that incredible concept art was really satisfying.

from the second day
I managed to stay still long enough to get one convention sketch done. I'll most likely sculpt and paint this one.
At the end of the second day, a ceremony took place to honor this year’s spectrum award winners. I got there late because I was starving. I managed to record some of the presentation. Here is a few minutes of a live performance from the show.
