Supernatural Convention Autograph Freeze

Recently, some con goers at TorCon had their J2 autographs refunded and were given the explanation that it was a “scheduling/time conflict”. Not long after, all the autograph sales for 2017 cons were “sold out” or frozen.  This left a lot of con- goers a little nervous about the fate of their own J2 autographs at other cons and wondering what happening.  And because I have two J2 autograph tickets for SeaCon, I wanted to find out what was going on.  Was it a scheduling conflict for real? Or was it something else? So, I emailed Gary Berman of Creation. Keep reading below to see my conversation with him.

Your Signed Books and Artwork Just Got Harder to Sell in California :: Eureka Books: New, Used, and Rare Books in Old Town

Hey, so, this is a thing that is happening in California! Effective 1/1/17. bullet point version:

  • autographed/signed things being sold for over $5 will need a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA)
  • A very specific CoA. Like if it’s being signed in front of you it requires location, date, and a witness to be valid
  • If the seller is not the signer, the CoA must include the name and address of who the seller got the item from. 
  • So new CoAs have to be issued with every sale.
  • Also, if you sell a signed thing to a dealer, the dealer will have to put your name/address on the CoA when they sell it on to the next person.
  • This is not limited to memorabilia (in fact the previous law was just sports memorabilia, but this law was changed specifically to include ALL Items).
  • All signed items valued over $5. FIVE DOLLARS.
  • so this will affect artists and art galleries (signed prints, signed original work), authors, booksellers (and author events at booksellers), Conventions, and dealers at conventions (I believe WorldCon 2018 is in San Jose, plus ComiCon, etc.) etc.
  • oh, and I forgot to mention, sellers are required to keep a copy of this CoA for Seven Years. 

This is ridiculous and it was done kind of quietly. If you’re in CA, maybe write your state legislator and point out how ridiculous this is.

He asked how to pronounce my name, then said it and smiled and said it was gorgeous.
I asked him to write something in Romanian, and he stopped to think and my friend said “He’s probably just insulting you.” And I said “Its probably because I made him think” and he fUCKING GIGGLED

He did say it was a bit difficult because he never gets to write in Romanian, so I advise you ask him if you want it yourself!

10/10 would go see him again VIP is worth it because you get moments like these!

When I went in for my photo op I wanted to make sure I had gotten the correct translation. When I asked him what he wrote, he kind of chuckled, blushed, and looked away.
“I’m kissing you and can’t wait to see you later.”

Does anyone know of someone that works with audio software that can single out something in a voice recording? I went in for my photo op with Sebastian and asked him what my autograph said. I know the exact times when he speaks in the recording, it’s just that it’s so muffled by surrounding noise, I was hoping someone could help me single it out?

This gorgeous, wonderful, amazing person made my day and I encourage you, if you’re thinking of going in October to Tulsa - do it.

Adrien:”Hi, Marinette, actually, I’m a big fan of Jagged Stone and I saw that you’ve created his new CD cover.

Marinette:”Indeed, that’s crazy, right!?

Adrien:”I would like to ask you, if I could get an autograph?

Marinette:”Ok, I can try. I can ask him!



Adrien:”…I want an autograph from YOU!!

Marinette’s biggest shock in here whole life! Yes and awkward Adrien is the best!

David Bowie’s signature was an ambigram

After he’s gone, he still continues to amaze me. Going trough some of his documents in a research for the design of a tattoo in his memory, I came across multiple of his signatures, along with some drawings, sketches and texts.

I became suddenly amazed by his signature, and while studying it, considering to center the design of the tattoo on it, I made a quite interesting discovering. Nothing that I wouldn’t expect from a beautiful mind as his. David Bowie’s signature was an ambigram, in which he kept his two selves eternally communion. David Robert Jones choose his artistic name, David Bowie, as he transformed in who he dream himself of, achieving this in a way that all artists could envy and admire forever.

And I found that he managed to reflect this subtly in his signature, reminding us, even without us knowing it, that he was a whole, the creator and the creation.

I studied the graphology and the results were amazing.

You can easily perceive in his signatures the name “Bowie”, distorted, at least intuit it. A “B”, an “O”, and a line with a dot that could be the short transcript of the “wie”. He always signed adding the year of the signature. But that’s not all there was to it. Not slightly.

David Bowie never forgot who made himself who he was. And that was:




If you look closely and carefully, this can be seen in all his signatures.

B and O for Bowie.

D R J for David Robert Jones.

This discovering has made me admire a mind that I couldn’t think it was possible to admire more in a way that has brought me closer to his work and personality than ever.
He always remembered who he was. He still was that boy, a boy with a dream and a will to follow it. And he knew that even if it was only to himself, the most important thing was to remember, to never let go of what created and accomplished who he was, himself. To keep his mind together. Ambivalence was his talent and his gift.
And that was his greatest achievement, and he left us the most sincere proof for it.

It’s been really important for me personally and revealing to discover this. It leaves me with the feeling that even though I didn’t get an opportunity while he was alive, I’ve finally made contact with his soul, even if it’s with his trace.

This was as great an artwork as himself.

“I pray that we can leave that legacy on this show — that every group of sisters who play this can truly love each other.”

So today I met Sebastian Stan in Austin
^_^ he’s such an adorable person! (Yes I know you can’t see my face, but that’s because the photographer made us go super fast.) I gave him mY Pink Floyd’s The Wall and my photo op with him and told him he could do what he wanted and HE SIGNED BOTH LIKE SEB WTF!!! Afterwards, he saw the movie and in the middle of signing I was about to ask him something in Romanian, but this PRECIOUS MACAROON decides to randomly look up at me a flash a bright smile!!!! Then I gave him the portrait I made for him and he loved it! He was like “Oh my God what the f- did you draw this?” I said “Yes I did!” He liked it a lot and looked at me with the most sincere facial expression that was filled with genuine emotion and mutual admiration and said “Don’t stop drawing. Don’t ever stop.” And his smile was contagious, so I told him “I won’t!” And we looked into each other’s eyes for what felt like forever until I finally had to turn and walk away.

I also had a nice volunteer give him my pack of pocky because I was worried that he was hungry or tired and I attached a little note on it with tape! :3

I hope and pray that I may one day meet you again, Sebastian Stan! 😊😁😄
