I’ll have new work on display and for sale in the Armadillocon Art Show (hint: Invasion of the Body Snatchers + 2015 Chesley Award nominated works). For the first time, I’ll also be manning a table IN the Art Show during selected Saturday hours (see below for schedule). THIS is your chance to score Loteria Grande cards, posters, and A Song of Ice and Fire limited edition prints at special prices!
Heads up — there will only be a limited supply of ASoIaF prints available at the con, and popular ones will sell quickly. So if there’s a particular ASoIaF print that you covet (choose from these), drop a comment here and tell me which one before 5pm CST, Thursday, July 23rd, so that yours will be reserved. You can then pay and pick up at the con. Easy. And that means you don’t have to knife someone in the side and whisper “For The Watch” when said individual stands between you and that coveted ASoIaF print that should be yours. 🙂 (Online price for these limited edition prints is $125 each, but at Armadillocon only, the sale price is $100 each, while supplies last.) Get ’em before they’re gone, people.
ART SHOW BONUS! For the first time ever, everyone who bids on one of my Art Show display works will receive a free signed Loteria poster of their choice! So even if someone outbids you in the Art Show, you still walk away a winner with a limited-run Loteria poster! After you place a valid Art Show bid on one of my works, just come see me during my Art Sale table hours to claim yours.
