SWC5 Preorders Allowed, & A Call-Out for Your Photos!
I’d like to share with my Star Wars art fans that I am being allowed to take pre-orders before SWC5, but you must be present to pick up the prints, and you must pay for them AT the show. Please pick up your prints by noon on Friday, August 13th or they will be put back into retail rotation.
About the New SWC5 Print: The print is the same style and format as C4 and CE and will be signed and numbered. There will be 250 copies only. The cost will be $100. The title of the print is “A Disturbance in the Force on the Battlefield of Hoth.” They have a preliminary already up on the StarWars.com site.
Please email my wife Denise with your pre-order requests and she will create a spread sheet to keep very good track of your orders. Include in your email your cell phone #, mailing address. If you would like to request a certain print number to match previous editions, please make Denise aware of this as well and we will try our best to match that number in this edition.
Please note that Denise must send you a confirmation email to ensure that the transaction is confirmed. I would hate for anyone’s email to get caught in her spam filter and lose the opportunity. Be sure to get that email confirmation. If you need to call Denise & confirm, her phone # is 630.845.4694.
One of the ideas that really stayed with me after San Diego Comic-Con was that those of you who collect my art do a really beautiful job of displaying my art in your own homes…and sometimes in ink on your bodies. Some non-tattoo displays, like my friend Greg’s in Arizona and Ryan’s in North Carolina, are really elaborate. So, if you all don’t mind, I would really enjoy seeing and displaying on my blog, with your permission, the unique ways you’re displaying my artwork in your own environs or in tattoo form. Sometimes it gives me ideas for how to matte and display my own. If you can take a jpeg photo and email it to my wife, Denise@writebrainmedia.com, she will start posting these on my blog for all of us to see, appreciate and compare notes. Who knows? Maybe a fan calendar can come of it? That could be a lot of fun.
Some of what happened at SDCC I’m under NDA not to discuss, but suffice it to say, plenty of great business opportunities came my way, and I’m very excited for the next year to unfold.
Here are some San Diego Comic-Con highlights that I can discuss:
The new book, ROLLING THUNDER: The Art of Dave Dorman launched at the show. I thank all of you who made the 1/2-mile trek from my booth to the IDW booth and back to buy a copy & then come back for my signature.
I did a sketch on camera for The Gnomon Workshop’s “SKETCH THEATER,” and that will post online in the next couple of weeks. When it goes live, I’ll post a link here so you can all see it.
My friend, The Collector, got nearly all of the autographs he wanted from SDCC, so I am pleased for him.
For those of you who sat in on my panel discussions, I thank you. If any of you got photography from either of my panels, please send to Denise to post on my blog with your permission and you will get a photo credit (if you like).
Again, I thank you all for reading and I appreciate all of you for taking an interest in my work. I’m hard at work painting the new SWC5 piece right now, so that will be my focus for the next several days.
Dave, the 2010 SDCC Inkpot Award Winner!
