Convention Schedule

We travel to several conventions every year. We often run conventions-only sales, and there’s also the added benefit of not having to pay shipping when you buy in person! If you’d like to come visit us and check out our art in person at a convention, here’s the list! If you’d like to stay up to date with the most recent events, products, and sales, please join our mailing list.
