Upcoming Show!

Hey, hey, hey! I'm pleased to announce that yours truly will be a "Special Guest", at the upcoming Victoria's Ultimate Hobby and Toy Fair in sunny Victoria B.C. If you've never been to the show it's an amazing event with an arena full of vintage and new collectable toys, comic books, vintage books and magazines, displays and demonstrations from numerous clubs and groups, a charity carnival, costume contests, tons of door prizes and a heck of a lot more (did I just copy the text from the poster? Pretty much!)

Anyway - it's a great time and is becoming more and more like a comic-con with all the displays and more artists in attendance. This time I've been invited to show and sell my new prints (more info on that coming up - I promise!), original art, to sign copies of books and magazines I've illustrated (and pretty much anything else anyone wants me to sign!) and just say "HI!" (all caps and exclamation point guaranteed!). I'll be flanked in "Artists Alley" by  the incredibly talented Dapper Dan and Canadian comic book legend and pal Ken Steacy.

So if you are in the area I highly recommend stopping by for an hour or two (you need that much just to see everything). And don't forget to stop by and say "howdy"!

We had 17 entries to our Fan-Choice Art Print Giveaway Contest Thingy!TM, and out of the the 13 eligible entrants (the others were in some way affiliated to this here blog), a name was drawn randomly from the official prize draw fez with great (okay... moderate) fanfare. And that name you ask?


Yay Brad! I'll be contacting you shortly (or you can contact me) for your mailing address and print choice, and very soon indeed the first official Glen Mullaly print will be hot off the press / printer / mimeograph machine thing and winging it's way across the vast distances of time and space to you!

But how, you ask, did my print votes stack up against other folk's choices in the second part of this exercise? With the able assistance of the accounting firm of Mullaly, Boo & Mullaly, and lead tabulator-chartmaker Joanne we have our results...

I was quite surprised with how the voting turned out for a few of the illustrations (Super Teacher had previously been requested as a print, and I thought that Arcade would have been near the top), but now that the peanut gallery has had your say it helps me decide the 6 or 8 prints that I'll make available in the first batch. Of course now the hard work of painting and stocking the online print store will begin in earnest (Earnest, Cayman Islands that is. The local business taxes are less there). Look for our big grand opening announcement here in the next few weeks - and thanks again to everyone for taking the time to vote!

Contest Ends - Entrants Await with Baited Breath!

First off... I'd recommend a mint. Secondly - the votes are being tallied, and the winner will be announced from the eligible entries later today. Thanks to everyone who entered - all 17 of you!

More Free Stuff!

Yes, you heard correctly true believers... hot on the heels of my last contest (in which a long delay was caused due to my announcing the festivities before I had the prizes in my ink-stained hands!), I'm happy (and more prepared) to announce's second prize giveaway extravaganza...

The Fan-Choice Art Print Giveaway Contest Thingy!

Yep. As a super-secret sneak preview of my upcoming art print announcement I'm asking YOU the consumer to help choose the prints that will be made available later this month. All you have to do is look ( or click for larger version) at the images below - numbered for easy contest identification... the numbers will not be on the final prints, and let me know in a comment the five (5) illustrations you would be most likely to purchase as prints. "Prints", you ask? You heard right... shortly after the close of this here contest-a-rama will be officially launching the first series of 8 high-quality 8.5" x 11" and 5" x 7" prints (along with original art and, in the near future, some other merchandise) through our new on-line store.

More info on that at the launch - but for now all you have to do to enter is... 1: Look, 2: Like, 3: Comment!

The prize? One 8.5" x 11" print of your choice (on Canson acid-free, museum grade heavy paper, shipped flat to anywhere in the world) from the winning designs. Contest ends September 15th.

Oh, and a few last things... Be sure to leave your name if you're not logged in... Images 10a, b, c and d are intended to go together (and will be sold at a discounted set price) so the four images numbered "10" count as only one choice, not four... Although I've tried to anticipate the most popular candidates from my portfolio, if you really like one of my illustrations not listed below (see my gallery at for other illustrations) feel free to include one or two of those in your 5 choices!

Obligatory Microscopic Fine Print Dept: One comment (with up to 5 choices) per entrant. Not all illustrations on my website gallery are available as possible choices for prints because of copyright or image quality issues. Although voting is encouraged, family of, Licensing, or Heavy Manufacturing Concern LLC not eligible for the giveaway prize (hey - if you really want one of the prints there's always Christmas!).
