Meet the Artist: Sam Flegal

www.samflegal.com

As an illustrator for both book covers and games, Sam Flegal specializes in painting strange scenes of epic fantasy and graphic horror. He describes his art as “stylized realism,” portraying fantastical things in a comic book-like graphic manner, but with an eye towards real life. Sam’s preferred medium is oil paint.

Sam first joined us at the 2014 Art Show and since then we've been fortunate to have him with us each year. Sam will be attending again this year, so stop by the show and check out his wonderful work.

The JordanCon Art Show - 2013 WrapUp

JordanCon V was a fantastic success and an amazing good time! Our goal was to double the amount the Art Show sends to the Mayo Clinic this year, and we quadruped it, with a total donation of over $575 to fund Mayo’s Amyloidosis research. We wanted to have some art-related programming this year, and we fielded not one, not two, not even three, but seven – SEVEN - separate events, including a retrospective of Michael Whelan career, led by the man himself, panels on Wheel of Time art and a panel featuring the Stormlight Archives artists.

Setting Bid Prices for the Art Show

by Paul Bielaczyc

Hey guys. Paul here. I thought I would write a quick how-to-price tutorial for those artists who haven't been in many convention art shows.

What the prices mean

Most art shows have three prices for each piece hanging in the art show: Minimum Bid, Quick Sale, and Sunday Sale. For JordanCon, you can set these prices when you submit your art via our online art submission form. (And of course you can always mark a piece as "NFS" or "Not for Sale.")

For those of you that have been in plenty of art shows, feel free to skip this section. But for many of our artists, this might be one of their first art shows, so here are some tips I have learned over the years that I think you'll find helpful.
