Less than a handful of days remain until WonderCon 2019 starts, but we’ve got a bushel full of news and announcements for you. Jen Bartel is bringing her enamel pin “A” game, Kristeen Parmeter wants to send you into “cuteness overload”, Patrick Ballesteros is gonna start a riot with his mini originals and much more.
Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:
- There’s still a little time left to get in on Honey & Absinthe’s pre-convention commission list this year, for pick-up at Booth #2182. But hurry — these spots won’t last long.
- Although all has been quiet so far in regards to Skybound’s WonderCon plans, John Layman, writer of Chew has tweeted that he’ll be signing Saturday at their booth.
- Artist Jen Bartel has released all her WonderCon plans and in addition to panels and signings, she’s bringing along some nice looking merchandise, including lots of enamel pins.

- As mentioned in our last WonderPost, James Silvani will not be making it to WonderCon this year due to a series of unfortunate events. All hope is not yet lost, you will still be able to purchase his Rocketeer print from Cyclops Print Works at Booth #1012.
Just ‘cause I ain’t at @WonderCon this weekend doesn’t mean you can’t grab my art! My @Disney ROCKETEER silkscreen will be available at the @CyclopsPrints booth (1012) for only $60! It has an edition size of only 150. So get yours before some weirdo does. #rocketeer pic.twitter.com/jMXbC7GYiS

- Over at Artists Alley B-3, you can find Kristeen Parmeter and these ridiculously cute “Beanie Weenies” key-chains. I didn’t think she could top her Cat Catcher key-chains, but she proved me wrong.
