Okay it's time for our Wednesday-ish A* original art archive sale! : ) It's where I pick a piece of A* art I particularly like, and put it up for sale at a special low price. This is the last one of these sales I'll be running before my little summer break—which will go from early May to early July—to move across the state!

Aaaand so this last piece is the 16" x 6.75" watercolor illustration I painted for A* episode 32, page 103, introducing that notorious night club, the Burne Unit! I guess getting to draw a huge, wrap-around mechanical billboard inspired me or something, because I mustered up an unusual amount of my particular type of pseudo precision for this page: that building and sign have a straight solidity I don't usually achieve—heck even the cursive lettering came out rather cleanly : o—the unusual angles of Selenis' head have a more-than-usual crispness, the ripple of highlights across her shoulders somehow hit in the right places, and I was really happy with how the projecting "smoking" hand of the sign achieved something of the 3D effect the advertisement needed to impress the average street-goer, and with a thick-and-thin line quality hopefully slightly reminiscent of an illustrated style from back in the golden age of ad illustration—as close as I can come to suggesting one, I mean. : D

So this piece is on sale for the next week, starting at just $16.99, right here on eBay. The auction listing has hi-res images, but here are some lo-res ones to get you started:

That pretty much exhausts my stock of super favorite remaining pages to hock to you—that aren't too recent, I mean! ^_^—so conveniently we'll wrap these occasional special weekly-ish sales for now, possibly to recommence some time later this summer. Thanks for checking it out! : D And if you do want other A* art to buy at a similarly steep discount, do take a look at the last week's worth of brand new A* page paintings, fresh off my drawing table, which you can always find (hm well okay not during most of that early summer break I'm taking : P) listed on my eBay profile page.
