Heroes Dis United

> Tigerlily, Heroes Con Exclusive Print, 4 color offset, signed, stamped and limited to 200

Many apologies to Heroes Con, to the CBLDF, and to everyone expecting an autograph, sketch, or chance to buy original art this weekend. United Airlines (operated by US Airways) screwed up my check-in, and I was put on standby and couldn't make any other flights. It was a long day.

However, I will honor the first six commissions at Heroes and mail them out when they are finished. I'm disappointed to have missed the show; my wife and I were very much looking forward to it.

The print above will be available after the show when Chris Pitzer of Adhouse Books mails them to me for signature. Look for them on the site in a few weeks.

I am quite fascinated by this juxtapostion of classic versus comtemporary approach. Truly unique!

That's a real pity, though secretly I am a little glad because I wasn't gonna get to go, either.

Very cool Tiger James :) I'm glad you are painting more often.

Remember the "part venetian turp/stand oil/damar varnish/turp" medium? I still can't figure out how to use darn thing lol.

James, sad to have missed you in Charlotte. Was very looking forward to meeting you. Any chance of getting on a lsit for the signed Tigerlily print so I don't miss out? Also,are you attending San Diego or Baltimore this year?

Wait.If you werent there, then who was the print: 'James Jean'? 0_o

Yeah I'm just kidding haha, but I cant express how bummed I was that you couldn't make it. There'll always be a next time though.

I was able to pick up one of your Tigerlily prints though, and its just gorgeous. Stunning work as always James!

To the gent at HeroesCon who was asking me about the print shown here, I think I "might" have the answer. I did send James around 8 test prints to see what type of paper he preferred. I'm going to guess this is one of those tests, or some photoshop wizardry.

James... I'll get those prints and other info out to you this week. As you can guess... you were missed.
