·     ART BY TAI'S 2018 INKTAIBER PROMOTION INFO

      For each day of October 2018, I will create a new Halloween/Sci-Fi/Greek-Mythology/Pop-Culture-themed piece. At 12noon (central time) of each day, the piece will go up for a 7 day auction at the ArtByTai eBay store. The starting bid for the piece will be $150 or $100, depending on the piece, with a "Buy it Now" option of $500. Each auction will last 3 days. Last year, I only spent a couple hours on the drawings, but this year I've spent 20+, hence the slight price increase.

The version up for auction: This auction is for the original pen drawing on watercolor paper, drawn with a standard ballpoint pen. The original drawing has been treated with a Kyrlon UV protectant archival spray. Prints of this drawing will be available in November. A framed mixed-media version on Mylar, using a hi-res digital scan of this drawing will be made this upcoming winter for release in 2019. Color prints of that version will also be made available in 2019. You are bidding on the original pen drawing.  With the amount of time I'm putting in to these drawings, it's entirely possible that I won't have 31 to present, but I'm gonna give it my best try.
