One of the better reasons I'm waiting on Art Show intel is that it will determine the point when I purchase my Fanime weekend membership. Hopefully that will be soon. Sorry folks but I'm not good on waiting on certain things.  :-\

I used to be Staff in the Art Show in the past. The displays were rickety and worn, the separate parts to support the wood beams that the peg board panels were zip tied to seemed like bizarre ninja weapons. But, they always held and were solid for the task. Taking them apart was a bit easier than assembling them. It was definitely a calorie burner at times. Even when I wasn't on Staff for the Show I'd still stay behind if they didn't have enough help for clean up.
The new displays look better and seem more stable. Be a shame if they couldn't be used again.

33 days and counting

Anxious is an understatement.  :P
After the Art Show changing hands 3 times over 19 years and getting zero information beyond Thank you for your interest in FanimeCon's Art Gallery. We have not yet decided upon the format that Art Gallery will take for the 2016 convention. Please watch our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts for information as it becomes available. puts something very important to me in limbo. It is kinda hard to take. My "bumps" are just reminders to myself and conveying to others of how much I like the Art Show. Read a few of my previous comments and you should get a better picture how I feel.

A bit of a weakness I have is not planning ahead sometimes. When it came to the Fanime I was better at it when I had a table in the Artist Alley. Luckily I got back a bit more money than what I had invested. However, I was always prepared when it came to the Art Show. Sadly I don't nearly push myself as an artist as much as I should these days. But then that's what the Art Show was for in a way. As I mentioned before I could look to other Cons to display my work but I'm not on that track yet. Waiting has never been my strong suit even though I profess I have reasonably manageable patience. I'm not making any demands. I'm not accustomed to changes to something that doesn't really need any. I've told people in the past that when I'm on display it's like having my cake and eating it too. The only time I "jokingly" let my ego out of the box. I'm not really crazy about plane rides and I could plan a trip to the Colorado NDK in September which would be a nice return after a 6 year absence. But, it would be a sad occasion to miss a Fanime Art Show this year.

Well I'm certainly glad to see there are more supporting the idea that the Art Gallery should come back.  ;D
Thing is with time getting so short and the uncertainty growing due to lack of ANY information, it's starting to feel a little like one would want to place a bet Vegas style regarding the outcome. I'm a believer in luck, mostly good mind you, and I'm still believing that someone will step up to the plate so we artists, yes I'm including other artists because their works are great too, can have our Show again.

Less than 37 days and counting.

Well it's less than 39 days and counting. It might reach a Point of No Return but hey what do I know? I've only been in the Art Show for nearly 20 years and watch it change hands three times. Here's a funny suggestion, though not really, give it to me. Hell I'll do it. But I won't do it without help or a budget and i mean from the Fanime.
Think about it won't you.  :-\

Well now I'm 49 years old. It's sort of good thing I didn't have a clue otherwise from a theoretical physics point of view I'd have altered my entire timeline.  :P Maybe I wouldn't have been over weight.

I've always looked forward to the Art Show each year. It was just a regular thing. Even waiting 12 months at a time was okay. The Oracle America building close by is a big landmark to me. A marker that says "here's the Fanime" so that's where the Art Show is. Still, like Red_Eye I'll just prepare the pieces for possibilities later.  :-\

I look forward to it. At that time we must remember to both shake our heads in a manner that says "what was all the fuss?"  ;D
I certainly will be.  ;)

Yay and Happy Birthday to me!  ;D Well technically not until 10:30 pm but hey the day is here none-the-less and my belated gift of an Art Gallery still seems to be absent of details.
41 days and counting. However, that number is smaller considering it takes a considerable amount of time to organize an Art Gallery, so really it isn't really 41 days.  :-\

Well you do have a point there. I'm reluctant to let originals go anymore and color prints do look just as good. Glad to see there is another artist out there who appreciates the Art Gallery. If it does resurface we have to look for each other while hanging up our pieces.  ;D

Well according to the "watch the Fanime website for details" regarding the Art Gallery it still appears devoid of details.
Everything else on the list of Events is up and running. Good for them. Almost the middle of April and time is getting
short. Still I'll put on my Blue Lantern ring and continue to hope.  :D :-\

Yeah I'll be 49 years old on the 15th. Been drawing since I was 7. Heck of a thing to consider. When you're young time doesn't have the kind of substantiality when you start reaching the age of reason and realization. I know it's not the same for everyone when they reach a certain age but for me it'll be quite substantial hitting the half century mark. Like a mentioned before, I had no illusions that the Art Show would change somehow down the line. I could look elsewhere for another anime convention, even challenge myself to go as far as the Anime Expo. It is bigger than the Fanime. I could do better there but why start over when I've established myself in the Fanime. 19 years is a serious stretch of time and the Fanime's Art Show is the only one I've displayed in the most. Sure I had 9 years in the NDK, even won a few awards, but aside from preferring the Fanime it's closer to home. I wouldn't pay the late registration fee if it wasn't worth it.

You know it may sound somewhat wishfully self gratifying but allowing the Art Show to come back would make one heck of a nifty Birthday (April 15) present, for me.  ;D but of course be a wonderful benefit to all returning artists.  ;)

I may have been a bit inaccurate regarding the last post about only having one new original piece to show if the Art Show re-manifests (so to speak)
Right now I have the line art started for the next candidate in my Infinity Ponies project. Yeah yeah it isn't associated with anime fan art but the notion of giving Fluttershy the Soul Gem is very neat. Fans probably won't be too happy that she's in tears though. Soul Gem can do that. Especially to Fluttershy.
Sooo since there are about 47 days to go I may have it done well before then and maybe even get another started beforehand. Oh one can only hope I guess.  ::)

Amen. Truthfully speaking things have been rather slow in the art department for me since last year.
I'm not saying it's due to how the Art Show went last time but right now I only have one new original piece to show. :-\
I like the new display boards though. Now we just need someone a bit more committed to the Show.

Well on the bright side if the Art Show does reappear this year, hopefully, at least whoever hosts it will have the same new display boards from last year.
Hopefully. :-\

 :'(  Well, looks like only 49 days left by my count. Just an observation of personal experience, but since I know how it feels when 12 months goes by, unfortunately, 49 days is just not a lot of time.  :-\

When I was younger I spent most of my time drawing. I enjoyed it and I still do. Rarely ever did I show anyone, outside of family, any of my pieces. Wasn't comfortable with anyone else's opinion or input. That changed as time went on. In 1997 at the Fanime at Foothill College I went on display in the Art Show.
It was a big deal since any Con fans could just waltz in and eyeball my fan art. I wandered the Con for a while and eventually checked in at the Art Show to peek at the people viewing my works. When I saw my panels I noticed that a few of my drawings were missing. I was a bit dismayed at their absence. When I asked Kirk, the guy during that time running the art show, what happened he plainly told me that I had sold some pieces. I was surprised on two levels. One: someone actually liked and bought my art. Cooool.  Second: I'll most likely would never see those drawings ever again after all the work I put into them.

1997 Fanime was THE first time I sold art works. For 18 years I was one of the corner stones of the Fanime's Art Show, sold every single time, and fans would look for my works there. It's a very nice feeling. I like the Art Show a lot and I'd be lying if I said I didn't like the money too. But, that wouldn't be the end-all-be-all of it. The fact that I've been in an Art Show, marginally counting the NDK's Art Gallery in Colorado but haven't been back to it in over 6 years, is miraculous by itself. Okay so I didn't make any money last year. I didn't have any illusions that sometime down the road something would eventually change somehow. After all, the Fanime is a business and it's still growing. For all that time I've seen the Art Show to be my once a year niche to show off my best fan art, but that future is now in question. I wear a Blue Lantern ring (look it up) and like the best example I can follow, not blindly mind you, of optimism I've seen so far (Judy Hopps) I'll assure myself that something positive will come of the Art Show.
