As the 2012 Scarefest rapidly approaches, we are profiling some of the special guests that you can expect to see at the convention.  Next up is Artist Christian Gabriel.

Christian Gabriel, also known as “Christian Gabriel Fazio” evolved from the cold unforgiving streets of Amityville, NY. Coming from a family of artists, he grew up drawing his favorite comic book heroes and cartoons. During his teenage years, he moved to Las Vegas where he would soon enlist in the Marine Corps. It wasn’t until he was deployed to Iraq in 2005 that would stare death in the face for the first time and that’s when he truly gained ample respect for the departed. He currently resides in Las Vegas.

Christian will be at the Aaron Goodwin Collections Booth selling his artwork and also will be featured in a panel at 6:15 pm on Saturday September 29th in the Heritage Ballroom with Aaron Goodwin and Adam Michaels entitled “Aaron’s Nightmares”.  Scarefest 2012 runs September 28-30th at the Lexington Convention Center in Lexington, Kentucky.  For tickets or more information go to http://www.scarefestcon.com/.
