Display Information​

 

Indoor:

 

Heather makes use of 14in x 14in interconnecting mini grids to manage table space. She also utilizes a fabric backdrop to display prints and small original paintings. The backdrop is anchored down by 20lb tent weight bags to ensure that it does not tip if bumped. Backdrop can be configured to be 2.5ft, 5ft, or 10ft wide and can stand up to 12 feet tall. Pole footprints measure 1-2ft depending on configuration.

Outdoor:

 

Heather has a white 10ft x 10ft pop-up art tent. The tent is anchored down by four 20lb (80lbs total) canvas tent weight bags. Tent walls are comprised of 14in x 14in interconnecting mini grid panels that allow wind through with minimal resistance. White tarp walls are also an option. Heather can provide her own electricity.

Product Overview:

 

Heather’s art style developed around her novel series, Sivoa and has morphed into what can best be described as a fantasy take on comics, with a concept art influence. She uses both traditional and digital materials to create the images she sees in her mind.

While the bulk of her table display contains giclée art prints at various sizes, it can also include original paintings and books. An exact catalog of what she has for sale at her table can be found in her online store located at http://shop.dragonmun.com

 
Tax & Insurance Info:

 

Heather is a sole-proprietor doing business as Dragonmun Studios and is registered in the states of Florida and Georgia. Temporary sales permits are acquired as necessary for shows out of state. Event insurance is provided on a temporary basis through ACT.  Documentation can be provided upon request.

Appearance Fees

 

Being a professional creative means that Heather spends almost every waking hour working on projects, so while she is totally down to participate in person, it cuts into production time and thus, earnings. Because of this, she does charge some minor appearance fees:​

  • Video-conferencing: $50/hour.

    Heather will live stream into your classroom, convention panel, or online event to talk about a subject of your choosing! How-to art, the wizardry of self-publishing, making comics, world-building, Sivoa – anything she knows something about! 

    Sample interview:

  • Classes: $100/hour + travel expenses and supplies.

    Heather often runs art-related workshops/panels and will be more than happy to run such at your gathering.
     

“Heather and I have worked comic cons and have participated on discussion panels together in the past, and I find her to be a highly talented and gifted artist/writer with the heart and soul of a entrepreneur. She’s a joy to be around and has a vast knowledge and experience as a independent artist and is always willing to share her ideas, creativity and guidance with others. She is by far one of the most dedicated and giving artist I’ve had the pleasure of sharing a stage with.”

​~Carlos Castellanos, Founder of DrawnBySuccess.com & syndicated cartoonist of “Baldo”
 

  • Special/Featured Convention Guest: $negotiable + travel expenses, billing, and supplies

    Heather will host panels/workshops for the class rates listed above, but this cost can be substituted by granting her an art/vendor space with an event badge for her assistant. She also requires official billing on the convention website and guide (for authentication purposes).
