Trying to get rid of my stock left over from Otakon! I'm going to be selling a whole new selection next time around so a lot of this stuff may never see print again. If you really want it, you'd better pick it up now.

These are high quality prints on brilliant white cardstock, printed on a high resolution Epson R1800 art printer. Much better quality than anything you'd see from Staples or Kinko's.


PRICES
large (13x19) - $20
medium (8.5x11) - $15
small (4x6) - $5

US shipping - $5

Overseas shipping cost will have to be calculated. If you order more than one print, they'll be bundled together (therefore you only pay the shipping cost once).

Spend $50 or more and I'll throw in a free sketch!





When you've decided on your prints, please:
- send a note or e-mail me at pana.stamos@gmail.com with the subject "PRINT SALE"
- include a list of which prints you want in which sizes*
- include your mailing address and paypal address




* some prints may be sold out in certain sizes.
Going to be at Otakon this month! You can find me, sammywhatammy and penguinfaery at Tables N10-11. These images and more will be available in postcard (4" x 6"), medium (8.5" x 11") and poster (13"x19") size prints. If there's anything else from my gallery that you want to purchase, let me know and I'll be sure to keep some in stock.

I'll see you there soon! Look for the tiny person with the green hair.
I'll draw for you if you donate. Bid here.
Current waiting list: 2
Next available time: November 2010

I'm desperately in need of money for the summer, even more desperate than usual. So now I'm offering cel-shaded color bust portraits for $15 each (that's about $20 cheaper than usual!)

So, um... I've really neglected this little corner of the internet, haven't I? Truth is I haven't finished much art at all lately, and my sketches just get posted to my blog because deviantART hates sketches.

Comic gig was a bust, but ain't that just how it goes? Got a pilot issue done and nowhere to put it. It's floating in no-man's-land without a publisher, but I don't think I've got the rights to put it up for ya'll to see.

Would be great if I could get the money they owe me for that, at least.

Other stuff, other stuff... Big changes in my life. Won't be able to finish any art in the upcoming months, for lack of a computer on which to color (the laptop just don't cut it). Looking for a place to live, as I'll be homeless very soon, and lacking the cash.

The good news is I'm picking up work on NO8DO again! I know a lot of people were hoping to see the rest of that story, so everybody cross your fingers and hope Tokyopop likes our pitch!

...Isn't this new layout pretty?

Oh let's see, what's been going on lately...

I'm taking part in Small Press Idol '07 but am debating dropping out for various reasons. My entry is Machine Flower, which will be made into a webcomic regardless of what happens with Idol, so you can be excited about that at least.

PoetessLaureate and I are also compiling materials to release a special edition book of NO8DO. If you have any fan art you'd like included in that, try to get it to me before June. If you wanted to know what else is going on with NO8DO, we're not going to be releasing any more online as we're currently preparing to pitch it as a series. Wish us luck!

Soon I'm going to be preparing for next year's con season by doing a shitload of fan art. It's been a while since I've touched that stuff, huh? I'm going to be at AnimeNEXT this summer and possibly Otakon, but I won't be selling art unless some generous soul shares a table with me. I will not be at San Diego ComicCon like I originally thought.

People have been asking me about commissions. I am not taking commissions right now unless you intend to pile money on top of my head. I have an awesome job which takes up a ton of my time so I'd really rather not do small commissions. I am definitely not doing commissions for imaginary Gaia gold. Also, I'll only do a trade if you're my friend or from Private Exchange or Sketchy Sketch. (If we correspond more than twice a month, we're probably friends.)

Oh, but if anyone is really awesome at designing websites/dA journals, I'll totally draw for you in trade for a design.

The Carnival Art Book

Fri Oct 20, 2006, 9:15 AM


ATTENTION: DEADLINE CHANGED TO WHO KNOWS WHEN.



What it is: An art compilation of works based on the theme "carnival".

The technical details: I am going to be taking submissions for a full-color 9"x7" (landscape style) art book that will be published through Lulu.com. The book will be sold at the base cost and no profit will be made from it. All submissions must be   2775 x 2175 pixels (300 dpi) minimum. Higher resolution is preferred for better print quality. You do not need to conform to the exact shape of the page, just make sure that either the height or the width is at least 2775 or 2175 pixels. You may submit more than one image, but not all of them may be accepted. All media are welcome, but submissions must be made electronically.

The challenge: The theme of the book is "carnival". How you choose to interpret this theme is up to you. Your inspiration can come from modern carnivals or old-fashioned ones, from Venetian carnivals or Trinidadian carnivals. However, the image you submit must include a character and a background, and that character must be actively doing something. That means they're not just posing for the camera. They're juggling, or making cotton candy, or doing the cootch dance. Whatever. Your image should tell a story. Additionally, for copyright reasons, no fanart is allowed.

Who should submit?: Illustrators who are actually trying to make a career of their art. Because this is a promotional book, hobbyists have no real reason to participate. A panel of professional judges will be put together to help me decide what will make it in to the final book. Only professional-quality images will be accepted. The book must be of such a quality that it can be distributed to potential clients.

Why should I submit? Because this is the sort of thing that looks nice on a resume. Beyond that, if your art makes it in to the book, you'll have something to leave behind when you go on those interviews with local firms. You'll have something to distribute at cons. You'll have something to give your grandma for her birthday. And even if you don't make it in, you'll have challenged yourself and you'll be left with a lovely piece of art at the end of it. This is a good introduction to the process of being an illustrator, to getting a list of requirements and meeting them skillfully. If it seems like it's too hard for you, then you should probably be giving it a try. That's how you improve, you know.

How to submit:
Send an e-mail to pana . stamos @ gmail . com with the image(s) you're submitting (in .jpg, .png, or .tif format).

On the subject line, put the word Carnival.

In the body, include the following:
Your Name: (as you want it to appear in the book)
Your E-Mail Address: (required; you want companies to be able to contact you)
Your Website: (if you have one... if not, why don't you?!)
Your Location: (city, state, country)
The Title of Your Piece: (if you just name it "carnival", I'll slap you)
Medium: (digital, watercolor, mixed...)

Note: By submitting to the book, you are giving legal permission to print your work in this book and to use your work to promote this book. You still retain full rights to your art and have the ability to show, publish, sell, and distribute your art on your own.

The deadline: TBA!!!

The Carnival Art Book

Sat Aug 5, 2006, 8:28 AM


>>>NEW JOURNAL HERE!<<<

Letter from the Editor:
Guys, I just have a few things to say about this which perhaps weren't originally clear (judging from how terrified everyone is). This is a challenge as much as it is a professional collaboration. You might never have worked for a client in your whole life but you can still put something awesome together for this. You should stop worrying about the crippling prospect of rejection and start working on improving yourself so that you can succeed. Even if you don't end up making the final cut, you should come out of this having done something that challenged you, pushed the limits of your art, and that alone should please you. You're never going to achieve professional quality work if you don't take risks like this. If you want a career in the arts someday and you can't even handle little old me looking at your work, I don't know what to tell you except this: bite the bullet.

Edit (06.03.06): The dimensions of the book have been changed from square to landscape. I doubt this will affect much, since none of you probably have finished pieces yet.

If you have any questions, direct them to this journal and I'll update whatever's confusing. Spread the word to your friends, minions! The more submissions, the better! Oh yeah, and maybe I'll post links to the finished submissions on this journal, when the time comes.

Beware my whine-fest.

Tue May 30, 2006, 5:21 PM


I have to admit, I'm very frustrated with my work lately. I feel like I haven't moved very far from where I was a year ago, despite excessive amounts of experimentation and all the things which should be helping me to improve, but aren't. Maybe I'm overintellectualizing. I probably am, since what I feel I'm missing the most is emotion. My older pieces have something the newer ones don't. No one responds to them and I can't blame them. Unfortunately I don't know how to fix it. I have a giant urge to stop working altogether because nothing's worse than mediocrity. But no one improves that way, and anyway, I have no other skills. Whining aside, I'm trying to come up with a plot for a webcomic. This is proving exceedingly difficult because I want a real story rather than regurgitated RPG fantasy or jokes about video games. Does anyone have an opinion on Wirepop?
