2013-11-20: The Great Experiment!
For the first time to our knowledge Wizard Con promoted in the most annoying fashion by yours truly is sponsoring the first of many auctions in Austin this weekend to partially benefit St Judes Children’s Research Hospital. What is new about this is 50% of the winning auction price will be returned to the artist directly and exactly. This may have been done before but I am not aware of it.
It was never right for the artist to bear the brunt of these sorts of auctions. Now good will will be done and the artist will get a proper share of the income price received.
It is a win, win, situation for everyone.
Artists who want to participate do not have to be a guest at the Wizard Austin Con. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate with art at this auction.
