JordanCon 2018 will be the tenth JordanCon and the seventh year for the Art Show. For those of us who have been with the convention since JordanCon 1, it's hard to believe we're at year 10 already. The last decade has been a whirlwind of amazing experiences, treasured friendships and continual inspiration.
During the past seven years our artists have helped raised almost $6000 for Mayo Clinic's Amyloidosis Research fund, between Art Show sales, Charity Art Jam auctions, and our own special brand of "shenanigans," (on top of what the other Charity Events raise every year). Our Guests of Honor have included a Who's Who list of award-winning artists: Sam Weber, Michael Whelan, Larry Elmore, Todd Lockwood, John Picacio, and in 2017, the gracious and talented, Stephen Hickman. We've also been blessed with an equally amazing pool of returning artists who bring us a beautiful Art Show each year and who generously lend their time and talents to our Art Track, a full programming track of art-related panels, workshops and demonstrations that runs throughout the weekend.
But rest on our laurels, WE. WILL. NOT. But what we WILL do is return to where we began. Or almost.
