OOSA at Spectrum LIVE!

Spectrum LIVE! is just around the corner and we are getting excited for Out of Step Arts to make it’s official debut. Alexis Ziritt, Logan Faerber, Toby Cypress and Andrew MacLean will all be there, so come by booth #903 to chat and check out all of the books, original art and prints they’ll be bringing. And speaking of prints……

Since this will be OOSA’s first convention appearance and all, I wanted to do something special to mark the occasion. OOSA artists Logan Faerber and Greg Ruth (who were both selected to be in the upcoming Spectrum 19) worked together to come up with this amazing piece just for the show.

We’ll have prints of this for sale, as well as the original, so be sure come see us and pick up this convention exclusive!

UPDATE: Regrettably, Logan Faerber had to cancel his appearance at Spectrum LIVE. I’ll still try to have some of his work on hand for everyone to check out, though.

Charles Vess & Greg Ruth Selling Art for a Good Cause

Charles Vess and Greg Ruth are both fantastic fellows! They were kind enough to contribute some art to the Princess and Pirate Art Exhibit I hosted on April 22nd as part of the fundraiser for the Bristol Regional Speech and Hearing Center. They have both extended that kindness by offering to donate a portion of the sales of the pieces in the exhibit to the BRSHC. Since most people couldn’t travel to Bristol for the event, the art is now available to purchase online!

Greg Ruth has listed several pieces he did for the book ‘A Pirate’s Guide to First Grade”. You can see all of the those in the OOSA store. There are some copies of the out of print book included with some of the pieces, as well.

Charles Vess has agreed to let Out of Step Arts manage the sale of the pieces he contributed to the exhibit (Over 50!) for a limited time on behalf of himself and the BRSHC. I’ve set up a special gallery where you can view all of these pieces here on the OOSA site. Just click on each thumbnail to see the price and dimensions of the piece. If there is a dollar amount, the piece is still available for purchase.  If you see something you like, send me an email and we’ll work out the details. Act fast though, because the Vess paintings will only be up until May 18th!

Getting great art while supporting a good cause. Does it get any better than that?

Can I help you find something?

I’m sure you all are aware of the OOSA store by now, right? The artists have a great sampling of some of their work available for sale there. I try to encourage the artists to send me new work to list there every once in a while so there are new choices for people looking to buy something.  In fact, Alexis Ziritt just put up a bunch of new stuff so he can pay to replace his recently deceased computer and make his way to some conventions (Spectrum and Heroes Con) this summer. But, did you know that pretty much all of the artists have more work available for sale than what’s listed in the store? Paul Maybury, for example, has pretty much every page from every project he’s ever worked on and he’s looking to find it a new home so he can cover some recent unexpected expenses. Andrew, Logan, Toby and Greg, I’m sure, all have stuff they’d love to sell, too, that’s not listed in the store.

So how do you get your hands on all of this unlisted stuff? Just ask! If there is a specific page or an image you’ve seen from any of the OOSA artists that you want to own, just get in touch with me and I’ll check and see if it’s available. The worst I can say is “Sorry, it’s already sold.” And if you’re looking for something really specific, several of the OOSA artists are open for commissions right now and would be happy to draw you whatever you’re looking for.
