It's pretty well agreed that this is going to be the biggest GP so far, casting a monsterously impressive shadow over all prior. Which I'm sure we'll all appreciate in the relentless Vegas sun.
If you've been to a GP with me, you may have noticed that I make the closest I get to a Herculean effort to get everybody what they want. Well, shy of a souvenir of my severed painting hand anyway. But even at smallish events, I'm a wee bit outnumbered. There's not a ton I can do about the sometimes intolerable wait in line, except getting all Judge Dredd with rules, limits, and a Stallone-ian accent. And I can stay, overclocked on Mountain Dew, until they kick us out of the hall, but at some point, we all must go shambling home. Hopefully with, instead of tears, a gleeful glint in your eye as you giggle at a couple card alterations.
I always try to have a handful of alterations done ahead of time, some sketches, and the like, but they usually vanish into coveted binders within a couple of hours. It's also not uncommon for a vendor to buy up the lot, add a zero to the price, and throw it under the glass.
This time, I'm commandeering a much larger slice of schedule for pre-fab fanservices. That's of course no guarantee that it will last. But I'll have quite a bit of the stuff most requested done in advance. And something totally new, but often asked about - original oil paintings.
If you're registered with the Ascended Minion Project - I've got some special stuff for you wonderful folks. (And only for you wonderful folks. So if you've been on the fence about joining - now would be a dandy time.)
And if you're on the fence about attending: I can't know your circumstances. But this is basically our Woodstock.

More sneak peeks as I finish them, and as new swag is delivered to my studio. BE AS EXCITED AS I AM, DAGNABBIT!
