Chromacon is an Annual Independent Illustration and Comics Arts Festival held in Auckland, New Zealand. It is a grassroots effort to showcase original New Zealand art and promote self-published work. Admission is free at this year’s convention to be held May 12, 2013 at the Aotea Center.
Weta Workshop Senior Concept Designers Paul Tobin and Nick Keller will be appearing at the 2013 Chromacon, and to whet your appetite, Chromacon is giving away a signed copy of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – Chronicles | Art and Design!
Packed full of more than 1000 images of concept artwork, photographs, and development paintings, this will surely satisfy any fan of fantasy art and illustration.
Furthermore, there is a special fold-out map printed in glow-in-the-dark ink and a giant four-page fold-out of Bilbo’s contract!
The book is signed by Paul Tobin and Nick Keller, as well as fellow Senior Concept Designers Daniel Falconer and Gus Hunter, not to mention the Creative Director of Weta Workshop, Richard Taylor!
To enter the competition, simply like Chromacon’s Facebook page, and click the “Win Hobbit Artbook” tab under the Chromacon page banner before midnight on May 5, 2013. (Only New Zealand residents are eligible to win.) And be sure to drop by Chromacon in May for the chance to talk to Paul and Nick in person!
Best of luck!
