Getting ready for TeslaCon

Oh, the amazing things I have prepared for the Divine Iguana’s debut at TeslaCon 2013

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen!  The Divine Iguana is gearing up (no pun intended) and heading to the finest Steampunk event in the country.

Have I made a fantastic new outfit? No.  Instead I’ve been toiling away making amazing new things to share.  New cards.  New prints.  New necklaces from very, very old things.  Simply the finest accessories and the most intriguing images.

This traveling art carny is packing up the gypsy layers and the steamer trunks and heading to Madison with a cargo of curiosities that I can hardly wait to share.

Among the new delights is 8×10 prints of one of my favorite notecard images..Pearls of Wicked Wisdom.

just like this, only bigger.

And this simply stunning new Black Cat print, a companion to my Black Cat notecard series and to the Black Cat collage sheet’s I’ve made available on PassionFruits Images.

Black Cat Print by Rena Hopkins

This handsome fellow will be making his public debut at TeslaCon.

I’m sleep-deprived and under costumed, but I’m very proud to be able to say that I am a

YAY! The Divine Iguana is soooo excited!

Note cards in boxes, or note card sets or boxed note cards…whatever. I made some.

That’s right…boxed notecard sets.  So exciting!

I’m pretty proud of myself.  As I prepare for the epic awesomeness that will be this years Teslacon I’m also honing the items that I hope to show this coming year at my very first wholesale show.  New up (and pretty spiffy, if I do say so myself) are boxed note card sets.

Vintage Airships Notecard Set
Who Doesn’t Love a Dirigible?

Newest in the line-up is this awesome set of Vintage Airship cards.  Six blank note cards with matching cream envelopes in a classy little package.  Adapted from antique illustrations, layered with lots of vintage textures and digitally altered to create gorgeous little cards.

They are printed on the same high quality paper as my fine art prints and are just as suitable for framing as for mailing.

Right now they are only available at the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, MI.,  but they’ll be on Etsy soon (very soon.  maybe even tomorrow).  I’ll have these pretty little fellows at Teslacon, too.

The big question is, do I make 8×10 prints to go along with them?  Would you like to see these fellows in a larger format?

How cool would this be as a framed 8×10 over your desk? Pretty cool, right?
