So you want to buy a minion badge…

Proving yet again that You Just Never Know, Do You?, there seems to be a lot of interest in Minion badges!

At the moment, the best way to get one is to e-mail me. They’re $10 plus $2 shipping US, $4 international, and the problem is that my shopping cart, while very flexible in many regards, tends to choke and die on shipping issues, so we gotta do this the hard way.

So! E-mail to ursulav(at)gmail.com,* tell me what country you live in and how many you want, and I will get you a quote! (I tend to start giving discounts on larger orders, which is another point over the automatic shopping cart system.)

If you’d like to reserve one for AC, to be picked up there, also send me an e-mail, and I’ll do so!

This offer will last until such time as I get tired of cutting 'em out, or my paper cutter explodes and I have to buy a new one, which I sort of do anyway, because the old one is duller than a butter knife, but they're so darn expensive, and...err...what was I talking about?

*This is the one that really works all the time. Some of the old ones go to my ex-husband, so, err…update?

St. Mantid ACEO

Working itty-bitty these days, apparently!

2.5 x 3.5, mixed media

St. Mantid, just to get the joke out of the way, did indeed spend a lot of time praying. He was the head of one of the largest order of mantis monks, followers of St. John the Baptist (male mantises often choosing celibacy and strongly identifying with those who have been beheaded, for obvious reasons.) Several miracles were attributed to him, including the Miracle of the Loaves and Aphids and the Reattachment of the Head of Brother Ignatius, who fell victim to carnal sin and later returned to the monastery carrying his severed head in a sack.*

*Brother Ignatius was never quite right after that, but did receive flowers from an unknown admirer every year on his birthday.

This is an ACEO (art card) sized piece, matted to 2.25 x 3.25, with metallic copper halo. The original is for sale, and will probably go to AC unless somebody wants to jump on it. I’m also doing a limited run of 7 prints, also matted, hand-painted to also have the metallic copper halo. (I like Luminere fabric paint for that–much more opaque metallics than you get in straight acrylic.) The first and last of the series will be saved for con art shows.

ETA: St. Mantid is SOLD OUT. There are still a couple available for cons, so you've got a shot there--thank you so much to everybody who ordered one!
