We will be switching over the blog to here in the next day or two. Please be patient.


Meet the Artist: Amanda Makepeace


Amanda Makepeace is a JordanCon favorite who has quietly built a following here for her beautiful, evocative work. In 2015, she was awarded the Judge's Choice Award by Artist Guest of Honor Todd Lockwood and the Art Show directors for her painting "Renascentia." Amanda is an Artist, Changeling, Wanderer, Bird Whisperer and part-time Owl Queen. When she is not in the studio, she is usually reconnecting with nature and the woods that inspired her as a child (and which continue to inspire her work today). If you are coming to JordanCon this year, be sure to check out her work and say hello.

WoT TV Series!!!

Harriet's mysterious announcement is finally here!

"Wanted to share with you exciting news about The Wheel of Time. Legal issues have been resolved. The Wheel of Time will become a cutting edge TV series! I couldn’t be more pleased. Look for the official announcement coming soon from a major studio —Harriet"


Art Show Awards

Each year the JordanCon Art Show awards four awards to recognize the most outstanding works by our exhibiting artists. The art and artists winning these awards each year, as well as our Artist Guests of Honor who helped award these honors, are documented below.

The first is a Judges' Choice Award for the best work of art in that year's show, as determined by a panel consisting of our Art Show directors and the Artist Guest of Honor for that year. However, this award doesn't necessarily have to go to a single work. It can be (and has been) awarded to a group of works that work together as a thematic whole, such as Joe O'Hara's group of Wheel of Time character portraits which won the prize at JordanCon IV. The winner of the Judge's Choice Award is presented with a trophy and a certificate. You can see photos of many of these award winners over the years in the list below.

The Future of WoT!
