Time for more great geek art!
Think you can handle this cute? BECAUSE I CANNOT.
Groot! By Piper ThibodeauSQUEE! I don't see any prints for sale, but Piper does allow you to download the image on DeviantArt. (New wallpaper?) Plus check out the rest of Thibodeau's gallery for more goodness like this:
Since I'm still catching up on posting all the art I found at Supercon, I tried not to buy any more at Tampa Comic-Con - I did. But when Mike Maihack is offering $20 watercolor commissions? COME ON.
I actually asked Mike what he wanted to draw, and he suggested the new Batgirl. SOLD! Here she is, all framed up in my office:
Watch for Mike at your local cons to snag a commission like this, or head over to his online store for prints and books.
When I posted this "art haul" photo from Supercon last month, some of you immediately zeroed in on that adorable Toothless in the middle:
That's an original commission by our friend Nathan Szerdy, but after seeing your response to it, he decided to give it a digital makeover and make it a print!
follow Nathan on Facebook to keep up with his convention schedule, and/or look for him at Dragon Con next week!
Charlie Thurston - creator of that adorable WHObacca you all loved - donated his latest for the board, too. It's a geeky twist on the Christmas tradition of the Elf on the Shelf, called...
Wedge on the Ledge.
(OH YES HE DID.)
Also from Supercon, I picked up a few more of Alex Asfour's big 12X17 posters for the give-away board, since you guys snapped up the last batch I featured. You won't find these anywhere online; you can only buy from Alex in person or win them here!
Pinterest to see the rest of his geek posters, or head to his website to see his travel posters (which are gorgeous) and design work.
Kit Steele had stacks and stacks of original pencil sketches like this beauty at Super Con:
And I think you guys will like Kit's robot:
I hope so, anyway; I bought it for the give-away board.
Follow Kit on Facebook to see all her newest stuff (GROOT!!), and you can buy her prints over on Society6.
Bamboota (aka Crystal Fontan) makes some fantastic t-shirt art you might recognize - and I just found she also sells them as prints and stickers over on Etsy:
Cereal Sticker Pack, $12
Her postcard prints are only $5, and the larger 11X14 size is $15.
Bianca Roman-Stumpff is another local artist-turned-friend that I'm desperately trying to get selling online. She has a few things on Society6, and occasionally sells original Puff Monsters on Etsy, but that's not even a fraction of her work.
Here are two of her newest print sets:
That Avatar set is stunning in person - I so love Toph.
And since John and I disagreed on which of these next two you guys would like best, I just got both:
Alien vs Predator. Bwhahaha!
If you like Bianca's stuff, do me a favor and go tell her on Facebook you'd like an online store; maybe we can badger her into it like we did Charlie. ;) Sometimes Bianca offers sales through FB with shipping, too, so don't be afraid to ask.
And finally, I promise these hand-sculpted and poseable art plushes WON'T drain your bank account - if only because they're already sold.
Yes, my friends, that is a handmade and sculpted ART DOLL. Can you believe it?? It's by Wood Splitter Lee's Fantasy Creations, who makes all kinds of different baby animals and auctions them off on ebay - for prices I'm betting neither of us can afford. Heh.
Check out her panda:
And her latest, a wolf pup you won't believe isn't a real live animal:
AAAIEEE! Seriously unbelievable. And Lee does everything, too, from constructing a wire "skeleton" inside the plush to handpainting the eyeballs!
Head over to Lee's DeviantArt gallery for lots more cuddly creatures, and for ebay links to her current auctions.
K, that does it for this month!
UPDATE: The give-away has ended, and the winner is AliceGracey! Congrats, Alice, and please e-mail me your mailing address & choice of prize!
