Gerhard At Toronto ComiCon 2016
I’m still figuring out WordPress and having fun using the photo “galleries.”
Please excuse me if I’ve used pictures from a previous Blog. Scroll over the pics for more details.
Gerhard’s “Store” is now open.
Check it out!
I was overwhelmed at the Toronto ComiCon with wonderful comments and orders for the Harry Potter print commissioned by Dark Hall Mansion.
To everyone who wanted a poster, please stay tuned as we set up a system to order.
The Wizard World Madison, April 8-9-10, is coming up fast.
We are going to be at table A33:
Hope to see some of you there!
Just got back from the Toronto ComiCon.
It was a blast!
Thanks to everyone who made it such a great show.
