    MicroVisions Auction - Vallejo, Bell, Foster, Palencar, and other greats

    Double your money! Buy a painting and help support the next generation of science fiction and fantasy artists.

    MICROVISIONS:
    These paintings were created as a special fund raiser for Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Fund. All proceeds will go to a scholarship to be awarded a student creating an exceptional work with a speculative or fantastic theme.

    All artworks are original and measure 5x7. The paintings are small so the minimum bid will be easy on the pocket -- bids will start at just $50.00!

    The auction will run on eBay from April 8th to April 15th, 12:00 noon.

    pixel,

    the scholarship is to be awarded to an individual who makes it into the society of illsutrators student scholarship competition

    to make it into that show you need to be a student of a 4 year accredited college.
    most art schools in the US submit to it.
    it is incredibly competitive, and the largest of its kind.

    once you are in, there are 10's of thousands of dollars awarded to students.
    this will be just one scholarship of many.

    i believe there was a thread about the competition a while back if you need more info.

    Man - this is so cool. Dan your piece looks great - it's so cute!
    I'm curious how you did such a clean design around it (thinks about the 'moon' crit Dan gave - feels ashamed )

    RedRook, thanks for taking care of that. I was juggling too many things at once. Thanks for getting rid of my blunder.

    Arkady - I'll try to get larger images up throughout the day. I'll need to squeeze it in between meetings. (On eBay they will be shown actual size-ish.)

    A little info of the Society's Scholarship:

    The history of the Student Scholarship is an impressive one. Since its inception, the it has bestowed over one million dollars to the award winners and their respective schools. The Society's Education Committee reviews approximately 5000 entries every year from over 300 colleges. From those entries, the jurors, comprised of illustrators and art directors, select an exhibition of just over 100 images. From this selection the jury reconvenes to review the original paintings and honor select pieces with cash awards. Illustrators who have won awards, or exhibited in, this exhibition have gone on to become among the field's brightest stars - John Jude Palencar, Patrick Arrasmith, Peter deSevé, Daniel Dos Santos, Greg Spalenka, Adam Rex, Terese Nielsen, James Jean, Tomar Hanuka, Jeff Soto, to name just a few.

    got to see the Palencar, Foster and Lars Grant West in person today. Thanks Irene. That Palencar just shines under the light. and the digitals don't do the Foster, just like the Adam Rex, any justice.

    it's too bad Dan just finished up a few jobs and probably has a huge paycheck coming in. would have loved to bid on a few of those.

    The thrill (and heartache) of an auction is, you just never know how the other guy is going to play the game.

    Yeah Dan, Don't you have a mortgage to pay?


    Pix - as far as i know, the scholarship is skill based, not need based.
    The student work in this years annual is even better than in the last one. most work cand hold their own with the pros.

    Commy speaks the truth. Individual works are judged. There is no application process beyond that. In fact, it is important that the jury not know the artist, school, or professor associated with the piece.

    The word "scholarship" may be a little misleading. All the funds raised throughout the year are broken down to a number of 5, 4, 3, and many 1 thousand dollar prizes. Plus the work is printed in both a student catalog and in the Society's annual.

    As a nice aside, the Spectrum editors were super kind this year and sponsored an award. And last year's Art Out Loud raised a lot of money for the awards this year as well.

    ugg - that DiFate looks terrible in the scan.

    all the colors are so much richer and the black is a very deep black. also them brush strokes are so loose looking yet placed so well that it looks almost like a photograph.

    i feel pitty for all those who don't get to see these in person.

    Amish - You're just gloating! Or maybe it's our secret plan to make sure we can win the bids!

    ...but your right about the DiFate. This scan is picking up a lot of glare. It's making the blacks look scratchy. My fault, I made the scan. DAN - I'll try to clean it up a bit tonight and get it back out to you.

    YES! All these wee paintings will be on display during the event.

    More accurately, the paintings will be on display from April 3- 21. Except for most Saturdays. The only Saturday that it will be open is the Art Out Loud event on April 8th.
