We're of course getting ready for MegaCon! I've been painting new originals to showcase there - I'll have several never-before-seen framed originals as well as at least one (possibly two!) new Triptych style paintings. Very exciting! =) Come see me - next weekend - Friday, Saturday & Sunday - booth numbers #713-#715 are all mine!!! It should be near the entrance, in the middle of the room (the vendors/exhibitor's area).
smallgirl (Alex) is coming to stay with us as she's doing Artist Alley at MegaCon! She'll be here a couple of days early (we might put her to work sticking pricetags on stuff, mwahahaha), which will be fun.
tigerpixieart (Carrie) is going to be here in town to have a table at Artist Alley too! So, everybody be sure to hit Artist Alley at MegaCon and check out Alex & Carrie's tables (I think they are right next to each other!). Artist Alley can be found along the back wall of the big room - a bunch of great artists there, I'm sure!
I've gotten a lot of emails from people who don't know what MegaCon is, and are perplexed by it. Basically MegaCon is a fairly large (not as big as Dragon*Con or ComicCon or GenCon, but pretty big by most standards!) "Con" here in Orlando. It's mostly a comic & anime convention, but there is tons of other stuff too - lots of fantasy, science fiction, collectibles, any kind of "fandom" you can think of really. There are lots of events, guest speakers, celebrities, and of course artists. There is a HUGE shopping area filled with vendors - like tons of little temporary stores selling all kinds of interesting things. Booksellers, comics, DVDS, statues, stuffed animals, clothing (everything from Renaissance Festival garb to anime cosplay to fun nerdy t-shirts), all kinds of fun stuff. It's in the huge Orange County Convention Center which is one of the nicest convention centers I've ever been to, and it's of course close to Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, and all the fun Florida stuff (and only about 45 minutes to the beach).
My booth(s) at MegaCon are set up like an art gallery on the sides - walls full of hanging paintings, stretched canvas prints, stuff like that. I have big spinning racks of matted prints, bins full of loose prints, spinning racks of necklaces and cameos, cases of my statues, my books on display, various merchandise displays, all kinds of stuff. I have an easel and I set it up and paint for all to see =) Not sure what I'll be working on - I might start it at the show and see what happens! I stay at my booth the whole time (maybe a bathroom break, hehe), and sign books, prints & autographs, pose for photos, chat about my art (and whatever else people want to talk about), that type of thing. It is a very laidback, informal setting - please feel free to come say "hi"! I have a lot of special items I only sell at conventions (mini prints, stretched canvases, matted artwork, etc.). Matt will be there too - he usually works as a "cashier" putting purchases in bags, helping to take paintings off of the walls, doing the money stuff, etc. Yes - I do take credit cards - Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express - and cash - and checks (with ID & contact info). ;)

They even have a photo of the corner of one of my previous booths HERE - to give you an idea of all the stuff I bring!
If anybody has any other questions about MegaCon - feel free to post them here and I'll help best I can!
Now onto the art!
First up are the "MINI" paintings - they are 5"x3" tiny original acrylic paintings on sheets of canvas - each is at a FIXED price of only $50 - this is the only way you can really get an original painting from me for that price, and these tend to sell instantly, so grab one if you can!! I apologize if any or all of them have sold out already....I had several others but they sold before I got a chance to send out this update!
