The Society of Illustrators is having its annual Student Scholarship Auction. All the paintings, sketches, and prints are donated by the artists, all of the proceeds are awarded to students during the Society's Scholarship exhibit. I'm reluctant to post about this auction since it is where I have bought most of my own collection...Promise you wont bid on my favorites!
Preview: November 28 - December 4Auction: Monday, December 4

For those with deeper pockets, the
Illustration House is holding it's fall auction. While I am not in a position to try my luck at the auction block, I still love to see the preview and attend the auction. Once sold, this work is unlikely to be on public display again.
Preview: Now - December 1 • Auction: December 2, 1:00 pm

Above: Gary Kelley's Art Out Loud painting will be on auction at the Society. Below: Mead Schaeffer on auction at the Illustration House. (This one breaks my heart...I so hope whoever buys this will keep it available for the world to see.)

Thanks, Irene. Do you know if the Society will be posting all of the images for the auction? I'd sure like to see what those works by Fuchs and Payne look like.

Hi David,

Welcome back to the States!

The Society _should_ be updating the on-line auction preview...but I wouldn't bet the farm on it. If you see an artist listed that you'd like to check up on, I'd email them directly if I were you. It might (I hope) prod them to update more frequently.

Perhaps of interest to other readers:
I know that Vincent Di Fate and John Berkey are also listed as contributing but I do not see them on the preview. I'll try to track those down and then post them on the sf/f collectors site: The Illustration Exchange.

You think i could get a sweet Upper East Side sugar-mama that is loaded with bling to marry me just in time for the Illustration House auction. ;P

Irene Gallo said...

Not if I get to her first!

Sorry Greg, but, just LOOK at that Mead Schaffer!...You understand.

That Schaeffer is so beautiful. What a great find. I went through and downloaded all of the images on the site from the past three auctions. There are some great pieces in there! Thanks for the heads up!

Once I played silkroad, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have silkroad gold. He gave me some sro gold, he said that I could buy silkroad online gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some silk road gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap silkroad gold to anyone who want.

Do you think that theguaid wars gold in the game is important, many players want to in the game has moregw gold, so in the game they effort to do the tasks, sometimes they spend a little money tobuy guild war gold, so I think if now I had enough cheap guild wars gold them sold to them, I can earn a lot miney.

Do you know the maple mesos? It is very interesting and if you have enough mesos,you can be strong. So i often go to play the game to get more and more cheap mesos, sometimes i can get the maplestory mesos from my friends who i know in the game. However i like the game very much because of the maple story mesos, i want to play the game more often.
