FantasyCon 2011 has announced its unique Artists' Row will feature such renowned artists as Ben Baldwin, Vincent Chong, Les Edwards/Edward Miller, Minic Harman and Steve Upham, who will be exhibiting original artwork or offering prints for sale.
If you're an artist wishing to reserve a place, there are a few remaining Artists' Row tables that can be booked at a rate of '15 (limit of one table per artist) -- if you have already purchased a membership to the convention. If you're not already registered, then FantasyCon 2011 has agreed a special Artists' Membership of '50, which covers a weekend membership and one table in Artists' Row.
If you wish the convention to sell prints on your behalf via the FantasyCon Print Table, there is a small commission of 10% on all sales payable to the convention. Full details can be found on the website.[...]
Everyone enjoys a bit of fun and the chance to pick up a bargain, so The Fabulous FantasyCon Raffle will be held at 10.30 p.m. until around midnight on the Friday evening of FantasyCon 2011.
'Once again it will be hosted by the sartorial-sharp team of Sarah Pinborough and Guy Adams ("The Ant and Dec of Free Stuff"). There will hopefully be many swish prizes up for grabs -- ranging from signed books, limited editions, proof copies, artwork, prints and many rare treasures yet to be imagined!
However, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please help us by donating a prize (or, even better, prizes) to support the Raffle. All donations -- and we really do mean "all" -- are very welcome, and the presenters will do their best to name-check as many people and publishers as possible. Email email@example.com if you have something to donate.
Raffle tickets will be on sale at the convention throughout the Friday (check at the Registration desk if you cannot find the Redshirts selling them).'[...]
