I realized after I posted it that I banged on and on in my Otakuthon 2015 post about all the awesome fan art I bought, but then failed to actually show you any of it. Since there ended up being quite a bit of it, I figured it was worth coming back and dedicating a whole post just to the awesome art and artists I saw in the exhibition room.

Dragons Playing D&D | Otakuthon 2015 Loot | Gamerwife.com
This was the first print I bought. It was a total impulse purchase, but it’s sooo cute I just couldn’t resist. My one gripe is the the DM’s book should say “Humans & Dragons” to keep the joke up, but mostly I just needed to be able to gaze on the little fairy dragon with his soda on a daily basis. Sadly, I don’t remember who the artist was for this one, but if you recognize it please leave me a comment so I can credit the artist properly.

Grim Fandango & Chrono Trigger Art | Otakuthon 2015 Loot | Gamerwife.com
Next up was this pair of prints by Pascale Lamoureux-Miron. I was initially drawn to the Chrono Trigger piece for Rick since it’s his favourite game of all time, but when I noticed there was a discount for buying two I snatched up that Grim Fandago piece as well, since it’s probably Rick’s second favourite game of all time. Have you played either game? I’ve started both and enjoyed them, I just need to find the time to get back to them.

Supernatural & Kora Fan Art | Otakuthon 2015 Loot | Gamerwife.com
More impulse purchases! The ‘Purgatory Life’ mini-print is by Paula Cloutier. I mostly got it because I’d never seen Supernatural fan art featuring Benny before and Rick and I had just been talking about how underrated Benny was as a Supernatural co-star. He got killed off way too soon. I was very excited to learn that **SPOILERS** he does make a surprise appearance in Season 10, which gives us something to look forward to when it finally hits Netflix in a month or two.

And while we still need to finish The Legend of Korra, this bookmark featuring Kosami by Roxane Daneault was just too gorgeous to pass up.

Feminist Sailor Moon Stickers | Otakuthon 2015 Loot | Gamerwife.com
Last, but certainly not least was this pack of Feminist Sailor Moon stickers by the incredible Starchild Stela. If you live in Montreal you may recognize some of these prints by their large size counterparts that can be found graffitied around town, particularly in the Hochelaga area.

Bought any good fan art lately?

    Love those SM stickers! And the Chrono Trigger print. Rick has good taste – such an amazing game. I haven’t played Grim Fandango though!

    I love the Supernatural print! I haven’t bought much fan art (sadly), but I did get a cool Doctor Who print at Wizard World Cleveland earlier this year that I totally adore.

      Oooh… would love to see pictures of your print. Our only Doctor Who themed print is actually a sketch of Gatsby (our cat) as the 11th Doctor.

      Yeah, I’ve posted some of her stuff on IG before I knew who she was. I love the mix of hardcore feminist messages and super girly aesthetics.

    Penny for your thoughts...
