OK, we're ready to go ahead and announce the drop date for the Hampton 70 show prints. As per our usual, we will add the available prints to the Zen Dragon Gallery online store Thursday, May 11 at 3pm EDT. Shipping will start the next week.
There are 2 editions... a SN/115 Artist Edition on Cougar White same as the show edition and a SN/110 piece edition on Lava Foil.
This poster was a pet project for Jeff because of who and what the event was for. The proceeds for the Hampton 70 show was a charity event that benefitted the Fox Theatre Institute and other musician-focused charities. The art and the time creating it were donated to the event.
We had decided before the show that we would take a part of the proceeds of our sales and donate it somehow as well, but we didn't know exactly what we would donate to. In light of the events, we are going to donate that to the Colonel's wife.
The entire editions will not be in the store... we have a few people we need to send prints to as thank you's from the studio and we'll keep some for our archive. Because of the number of people who have written and the limited numbers, we're going to ask that purchases be limited to ONE print, not one of each.... but one print in an effort to make sure more people have a chance to get one.
Turn on Your Lovelight..... keep it on....
Release time 3pm EST. More details coming this evening
We'll be adding a few odds & ends to the store this week.... here's a sampling:
There will be 6 different designs of blotter art available in the store starting at 1pm on Friday, June 12, including the A.T. Furthur, Witchy Woman, Guitar Star, Om Mandala, Zen Dragon Buddha and an Owsley Stanley design. Prices will be $20-30. All but the Owsley design will be signed by Jeff. These are not limited editions, nor are they priced as such. All signed blotter will be $25 except for the Witchy Woman, and that will be priced out at $30.
There will also be a listing for the Om Mandala puzzles. They are 513 pieces, 15" x 22" and come in the cool little metal lunch boxes. There are only 24 available and shipping is included in the price. That
allows for them to be ordered in the same order as prints or blotter, since they will have to ship separately from both. There are no plans to reproduce this item, so this is the last time they will be available.
We will start auctions next week. We've got some oldie goldies that we pulled up from the archives to auction... some Panic prints and some other items that are hard to find. I'll post another blog right before I put those up. Auctions will last 7 days, so there should be enough time for everyone to see them.
That's it for now. Cheers and beers!
