Dragon*Con Update

Angelic Symphony Kitten
Here is where we stand with Dragon*Con.

We have been assigned a fan table in the Hyatt hotel. You will find us on the same level as the art show and the artist alley. We will not know the exact location until we check in with the staff there, but we shouldn't be hard to find.

As of tight now, we have made literally hundreds of tag flags featuring a variety of different art designs. We have also decorated hundreds of tins. One artist whose work we are featuring this year is Maggie Ramey. She has graciously given permission for us to use several of her designs. If you would like to take a better look at her work, you can visit her Etsy store to see the uncropped designs. They are simply wonderful and ridiculously affordable.

I also want to give a shout out to early supporters of the PRoV. Tim Burgess of the Venture Home News and Deborah Kerr have stepped forward to show their support and for that, we are grateful. We love our PRoVinites. :)

Finally, we have received in the lapel pins for this year. Anyone care to make a guess as to what logo was chosen? SPHINX, Guild, Shallow Gravy, Conjectural Technologies, the Venture "V" logo, the skull logo... so many to choose from, what is your guess?

A Call For Artists

Angelic Symphony Kitten
A Call For Artists

As we prepare for Dragon*Con 2012, we're putting out a call for artists to help create the tag flags that are given away to convention attendees. These tags are approximately 1.5" wide x 6" long and the best designs for use will be vertical. Any sort of Venture Bros related design is welcomed for submission, but we do ask that you only submit your own creations. In exchange, your website or other contact info will be included on the tag and will help advertise your skills as an artist at a convention attended by about 45,000 attendees. Anyone interested in submitting a design can contact me through this site.

A sample of past tag flags are illustrated below.


We Have A Winner!

With the holidays and other obligations, we are holding off on another contest for at least a few weeks. But we will be bringing more contests and prizes to you soon. However...

Cadet Recruiting! On the eve of the holidays and the cusp of a new year, we want you! That is right, we are recruiting for more AstroCadets. You know you want to be one, so why not. It's easy. Send an SASE along with your name and e-mail address (for newsletter purposes only) to PO Box 220393, Charlotte, NC 28222-0393. In return, you will receive your AstroCadet ID card, a tag flag (which doubles as a nifty bookmark) and a Soulbot sticker.
