Qurious about RGN's July 2016 Artists:

RGN's July 2016 Artists

Danielle Crain

Our Qriosity is always on the prowl; this time we wanted to find out more about Danielle Crain, illustrator, colorist and Georgia Nutts Guild member since 2012.  Danielle's been drawing fantasy artwork for years (and she's got the portfolio to prove it!); her artwork has been featured in an RPG card game and is visible on her art blog.  She is penning and drawing her own fantasy comic and has been an Artist's Alley contributor at local fantasy cons.  Qrious minds know: there's always more to see, so follow these links to see more of what Danielle Crain has been up to.

Kevin Ashford from Catered Cakes

It was at a holiday bazaar at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in West End (a beautiful and historically significant church, tucked into the heart of the West End community) that we first came to notice the delicious bakery work of Catered Cakes.  Nothing arouses a healthy Qriosity as quickly as delectably sweet treats, so naturally, we had to know more.  Catered Cakes has been providing tasty, home style desserts to eager customers around the metro area for several years and have an active presence with offerings in a few local eateries as well.  We wanted to get more in-depth, so we invited Mr. Ashford over for a chat.  The interview and the Catered Cakes website can be found by following these links:

                We took a little time to sit down with Kevin Ashford and ask him about his history in baking, his plans to satisfy the many sweet teeth we know are hanging around the ATL and his ideas for the future.  A soft spoken and personable gentleman, Mr. Ashford was pleased to offer us a glimpse into his world and share some of his feelings and big dreams.  Follow this link to check out the interview.

Natassja Jordan

Being as Qrious as we are (hey, it's a blessing and a curse), we're always prowling, and in our prowls, bumping into the most interesting people.  We bumped into Natasjia Jordan through her online window to the world ATL ON THE RISE, a web based video programme designed to showcase known and up-and -coming music artists in, you guessed it, the ATL.  Seeing her drive to promote local talent (so much like our own!) our Qrious nature was picqued.  The person we met is a bright, motivated young lady whom truly loves her music.  ON THE RISE ATL and Natasjia Jordan herself can be discovered by following these links:

                We wanted to know more (of course) and asked Ms. Jordan to drop by for a few questions about her path to visibility, her desire to bring young talent out of the shadows and her hopes for Atlanta's burgeoning entertainment scene.  Vibrant and friendly, she was happy to share with us some of her history, her likes and dislikes and her big plans moving ahead.  Keep a watch out because, just as the title of her web series suggsests, we think she is On the Rise.  Check out our interview with Natasjia Jordan by following this link.

D.P. Bates, Author of Primary Colors and Me

We were Qrious, oh, so qrious, yes we were, about DAP Tales, founder of the Georgia Nutts Guild and; so we did a little exploring.  Alongside DAP's personal devotion to the Arts in Georgia (she takes it quite personally) is her own drive to create and express.  She's a friend to the artistic community, working her relationships on Facebook and always gathering interest on the web for featured local artists at  You Qrious, too?  Well come see what DAP Tales has going on: just follow these links to learn more.
