Changeling Artist Collective original art auction - There and Back Again

September 10, 2016 — Submitted by Urulöké

UPDATE: The auction is now running, and many items have sold (Buy It Now) or have bids - if you are interested, check it out! There are many more pieces added after this post was made, so be sure to browse through the collection. https://www.facebook.com/ChangelingArtistCollective/photos/?tab=album&album_id=200247120389988

I recently saw a facebook post about the Changeling Artist Collective, an online group of artists from around the world. They hold monthly auctions of original artwork, and the upcoming September auction's theme is "There and Back Again", based on the books of J. R. R. Tolkien. I haven't seen any art from these creators before, but there are definitely wonderful works available. If you are interested, there will be more instructions posted at the time the auction starts (September 12th) on their website.

Auction starts on September 12 and ends on September 16. Bidding (in prior auctions, I assume the same here) is done through Facebook, and payment is made directly to the artist - be sure to check the description of any art you are interested in, as the country of origin and payment methods accepted are different for each artist.

August 22, 2016 — Submitted by Urulöké

Jenny Dolfen 2017 Calendar Cover

It's calendar season, and here is a really wonderful one from German artist Jenny Dolfen. She works in watercolors, and there is definitely a strong thread of Tolkien running through her interests. You can see more of her background and artwork at her website, www.goldseven.de.

For the next few days, pre-orders are available through her shop on etsy. The calendars (30x42cm) should be shipped around early September, and she says that all pre-orders get a few art cards (A5 size) as an extra.

I've ordered mine!
