Fine Art v. Commercial Art

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Susan Ramsay-Brechmann and Laurie E. Smith for a lively debate the differences between these types of art. Is fine art automatically ‘better’ than commercial art? Are commercial artists just cash registers with a paintbrush? Why is there such a perceived divide between ‘fine’ and ‘commercial’ art — and does common ground exist?

Laurie E. Smith

I've been in the commercial art biz for over twenty years, mostly as a comic book colorist (for DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Topps, Phil Foglio, and NBM/Papercutz, among others). I also create fine art, write both professionally and recreationally, and take part in voice acting and audio book narration projects. I look forward to meeting you all at Winnipeg's finest sci-fi and fantasy convention!
