As previously announced, Gen Con 2015 Art Show has made some changes in its application process this year due to unprecedented demand, and will accept applicants through a juried process. Any artist interested in applying in the 2015 Art Show, regardless of how many years they have exhibited at the Gen Con Art Show in the past or their professional status, will need to submit an entry to be reviewed by an anonymous jury.
Submissions will open Monday, November 10, 2014 and will close Wednesday, November 19, 2014. There will be a $25 non-refundable submission fee.
Artists interested in learning more can click here; the submission link will appear on that page next Monday, as well.
A Gen Con representative will be on-site during the event in Roseville, Minnesota throughout the weekend. They will give away Gen Con prizes, including some promo passes to Gen Con 2015! Just look for the person in the Gen Con Staff shirt.

The maps J.R.R. Tolkien drew to accompany his tales are their own form of story, sketching out the boundaries of his imagined worlds. But could our own, real cities be just as dramatic a fantasy setting? The answer is yes.
In our show-and-tell thread today, commenter and assistant geography professor at Pennsylvania's Slippery Rock University Stentor Danielson showed us these Tolkien-inspired maps he's been working on which, though inspired by fantasy, use real landmark and geographic cues to show us a slightly different take on mapping our cities.
In addition to Boston which is drawn out above, Danielson also has maps of Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Washington, DC, which you can see below. Or you can check out more of his maps over on his Etsy page.
