    Karen Hallion said in her newsletter she will have 50 prints of the sold out “No one is ever really gone” to sell at the show, so if you wanted it but missed out be sure to head to her booth ASAP

    I had VIP in Orlando and I don't think they told us who the artist was in advance (it was Doug Cowan).

    I would assume those will be gone pretty quickly on Thursday then.

    In that case, people should start working out for the morning sprint to try to get one of the 10 per day. :)

    Currently trying to decide between 'I Know' and 'Heart of the Rebellion'. Some beautiful art available, being an artist myself I'm always tempted by the art and like to support other artists.

    Honestly if you aren’t already in line for it, you might as well give up now

    It's possible VIPs snatch a good chunk of them before the general public even hits the floor.

    but they always have a very strict no run policy that everyone obeys when they release the line in the morning :)

    I've certainly been to cons where I've had early entry and then they let the general public in and I feel like young Simba trying to get out of the way of the stampede.

    No running, but nobody expects a podrace. ;)
    Or I might just get the other, pricier "No one is ever really gone". Love that pic of space twins Mark and Carrie.

    That Thursday queue is going to be competitive. Everybody will have the same idea of wanting to get things done so as not to get in the way of any panels.

    Agree! Between Art Prints, Hasbro and others (not yet announced) it is going to be a hectic morning

    StarWars.com has a nice article about the art pieces, with comments from the artists on how they came up with their ideas.

    I love that the inspiration for "Ill-Starred Love / The Good in Him" came from a visit to Lake Como.

    Nice find. That's definitely Hall F (F2 specifically) in the west building. You can see the Celebration Store and the Star Wars Show set.

    @star_wars_is_good I was looking on the official McCormick site to get a better reference for this layout and I noticed that the South building is no longer listed as one that will be used.

    Hmm...also interesting. I wonder if it was just a mistake before. I just have no idea where they are going to queue people and put the other stages. We should find out soon since they obviously have a floor plan now.

    The south building stairs are where some group pictures are being taken, I know that. I’m not fond of the groups costumes being on the show floor and right next to the store. In Anaheim they had combined the groups costumes and put them on the floor like this and there were so many reports of stuff stolen... it was sad. Those costumes are people’s personal costumes that they make. I have a bad feeling that having it next to the store isn’t going to be a good idea either

    Sadly all groups had so much trouble just getting any space from Reed this time around

    Looks like we got the floor plan on 3/22 for Orlando, so it may be a bit still until we officially get it.
