When is the next artist signing ?????
When is the next artist signing ?????
The Disney Vinylmation website says it will be September 18th, 2009 (5:00PM - 7:00PM EST). I think its posted within the Vinylmation Holiday thread too somewhere:
Yeah, It was buried I believe somewhere in the Holiday Series #1 thread somewhere, but Sledge also updated the news section:
Hi, Since I am new, I've been trying to look for any info. on previous artist signings and can't find an answer to my question which is: How many VM pieces do the artist sign, is it one per quest? I just don't want to bring all the holiday pieces if they only sign one. Thanks for the help!!
A local friend has brought Vinylmations for me over to the signing events to have them signed, so if you want a whole set signed I wouldn't worry too much about it. The last event was pretty busy because (1) It was pouring outside and people where curious to what was going on inside the Art of Disney (2) Something else was going on and I cannot remember for the life of me what it was, which brought larger crowds also. You should be fine to have them signed as my friend also gets their own Vinylmations signed too.Originally Posted by disneyaddict
Ok, I'm really new to the whole Artist Signings. The event says it's a Holiday Series signing. Will the artists sign other series or only the Holiday VMs? Also, is it better to get the cards signed or the VMs, or both?
Please answer soon, as I'm trying to get my wife to switch shifts so we can go up there for the event.
Everybody was brand new into the Vinylmation or Vinyl collectible scene at one time or another It's definitely a Holiday Series signing, but my friend has brought previous series over to have signed because she didn't attend previous signing events. They don't have a problem signing previous series either and some artists may not have attended the other signing events, so its a good time to definitely do some catch up and have previous series signed also. Not sure how Donald feels about previous Vinylmations being signed though, because most events such as D23 is more of you must purchase item here in order to have signed, but this has not been the case yet for the Vinylmation signings. I would presume if it really becomes extremely busy and they cannot accomodate this they will probably put that policy in place.Originally Posted by ChickenHawk07
[Personal Opinion] I have had both the card and 3" Vinylmation signed during the signing event, but that is more a personal opinion to what I am looking for so you may want only the card or only the Vinylmation signed. The artists do a great job of leaving the design intact and what I mean by that is Randy Noble isn't going to sign across your figure like:
I know the writing above is a little obnoxious, but you get what I am saying by signing your vinyl with big lettering so it ruins the design. The artists are pretty good at putting it on lets say the ears which is what Randy Noble usually does on the back, or placing their signature on a part of the vinyl that doesn't really ruin the design. Have fun at the event hopefully some day I can go and say hello...
As to what to get signed, that is up to you. The vinyls are already signed on the feet and the card as well, so it would just be an extra signature.
Hope this helped.
Thank you both for your very informative responses! (Thank you for anyone else who responds with useful information as well). This would be our first signing if we are able to go, so my wife and I are very excited! If we can go, we'd be able to pick up the MNSSHP Vinyl earlier, as we've planned a trip in early Oct. for my birthday.
Thanks again for the great info!
Just wanted to say thank you also for answering and helping. Good advice on knowing who the artist is to what piece, nothing worse then standing in line forever but then I enjoy standing and waiting because that means I'm at Disney!!!!
Thank you to all you guys for all the information, tips and thank you for the photo Jep.
I am thinking of going down Friday, would it be possible to meet with others for trading at a location in the park? Depends on work.
To follow up with information that has already been stated; I talked with Donald about it at the D23 Expo and he said that artists would sign anything that they have designed, so it would be ok to bring older series.
CAUTION: If you are having a bunch of things signed all at once, KEEP THEM SEPARATED after the autograph goes on .... they use Sharpie pens, but they do not dry immediately. I've had a problem with smearing, especially when they use a metallic Sharpie.
If you have a particular desire for a particular Sharpie color or width, bring your own Sharpies!
Since this will be first signing for me, wondering if it gets crowded and how long it might take? I have to get home to go to a play. Just trying to figure out best times. Do people line up early for signing like an hour or so before? Thanks
Went to AoD today. Told Donald would definitely not be there, but Misty will be. Also the prints are in but do not have item numbers yet. They will not be framed and there is an edition size of 250 which we already knew.
Dangit. I work from 3-10:30 :/
Great idea to get your questions ready. I was at D23 for 2 days, I was so overwelmed at looking at the vinyls that I didn't ask any really good questions. The ones that I did ask I forgot most of the answer that Donald told me. There was just so much he talked about.
Anybody bringing the harpoon gun to try to tag more peeps to turn into Sledge's VN Army? (check out post #3 for reference: http://www.vinylnation.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1247)
Seriously, I'd just like to know if the artists or other peeps high in the VM food chain ever see any of the customs that people have created and what they think?
