Thoughts about the Novacon Art Show [Apr. 14th, 2007|05:02 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Prompted by someone else posting pictures of her artwork, and having been thereby reminded that she was in the art show last year, I've been thinking.

I've done origami workshops at conventions before. In fact I'm down to do one at Year of the Teledu. I restocked on paper at the Japanese Shop in Chester during Eastercon, and I've been folding again.

Those models are all folded from squares about two inches on a side, which means they're mostly between a quarter and a half an inch across (say six to twelve mm in the new money).

Questions: Is it worth me putting something together for the Novacon art show? Is it at all likely that anyone would want to bid, on something that I'd routinely give away free in the bar anyway? Should I attempt something particularly complex for the show?

I wish I'd known you did this two years ago. I really wanted to recruit (for money) someone to make about a hundred of these for the tables at the gala dinner last year and couldn't find anyone.

If the need arises again, please feel free to give me a shout.

In other news, I can't quite work out who you are -- you're clearly amongst the post-Eastercon adding frenzy, but I haven't connected name/face/username yet. I'm probably being startlingly inept -- I usually am.

I've worked on tech for the Eastercons of 2003 and 2005 and for Redemption since 2003 but not this year (although lewis_p_bear and myself attended. I have also done programme for 2002 & 2004 Discworld conventions and was chairman for 2006 http://www.dwcon.org/committee/meg-broadribb.php The above named Bear has worked tech on over 100 conventions in the last thirty years. We also have a few mutual friends.
