Alex (smallgirl) made it here safely yesterday (she's still asleep though I think - jetlag!), and we're just about all set up for MegaCon! She helped us stick pricetags on stuff and put things in bags, etc. yesterday, and she's been getting her stuff ready as well.
We should see Carrie (tigerpixieart) today at the convention center later on as well!
We are stoked for MegaCon, it's one of my favourite shows and is right down the street. Matt is mailing out orders at the post office right now, and then we'll be getting over to the convention center shortly! Just about everything is already boxed up and ready to go! I have a bunch of new paintings nobody (other than Matt & Alex) has seen yet, ready to show off at MegaCon (including a new triptych!). I'll of course post pictures here online after the show, for those of you who can't make it out.
MegaCon runs tomorrow, Saturday & Sunday (March 7th-9th) - and yes I will be there all three days. For the benefit of the new folks (hi everybody!), here's the basic info: MegaCon is a fantasy/scifi/comic/anime/pop culture convention in Orlando, Florida. It runs tomorrow through Sunday at the Orange County Convention Center. Friday (tomorrow) it is open from 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm, on Saturday it is open from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, and on Sunday it is open from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. I am going to have a large booth gallery set up at MegaCon in booth numbers #713 - #715 which is near the center/front area. For a floorplan, see:
MegaCon Exhibitor's Floorplan (you can enable the zoom feature to zoom in and see the booth numbers).
It is in Orange County Convention Center Hall SB. Please take note that it is across the street in the North/South Building.The South Concourse, located inside the OCCC's South Building, faces International Drive. The street address for the South Concourse is 9899 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819.
At MegaCon I will be bringing literally thousands of prints, stretched-and-ready-to-hang canvas prints, matted prints, never-before-seen framed original paintings (painted especially for MegaCon), my books (including the debut of my new "Portfolio One" book), my statues and other merchandise, tons of brand new cameo necklaces, other jewelry items, and other stuff as well. I will be at my booth, painting (I paint all the time, and you can watch me if you like!), signing autographs & prints & books, chatting about my art, posing for photos, and generally having fun! Everything is for sale, and I of course accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, AmEx), cash, and personal checks (with ID and contact information).
MegaCon also has tons of other great artists, wonderful exhibits and vendors, celebrities, panels, all the usual fun convention stuff!

Now for the new tripych canvas prints! Finally I figured out a nice aesthetic way to offer my triptychs in the canvas format. Basically it consists of me scanning in the whole darned thing (trim included) and plopping it down on an 11"x14" black rectangle on the print.
The new Lt. Ed. #01/25 Hand Embellished Canvas Prints are now up for auction for two of my triptych style paintings - "Alchemy Angel" and "Absinthe," - each is up for a 10-day auction on eBay starting at just a penny with NO reserve - the auctions will be ending on the evening of Friday March 14th at 7:09 PM -7:26 PM Central Time. Again - I will be home in time to ship these out promptly, so there should be no delays - feel free to bid as usual! Click the links below to see the new canvas prints:
