International Orders now accepted online at susanheidi.com

Posted by Susan Heidi - March 16th, 2008

Yes, that’s true! International buyers can now purchase my pinups online through the same convenient check-out system as domestic orders. All you have to do is choose your shipping destination country during the secure check-out and the flat rate international shipping charge will be added to your order (shipping on orders $100 and over is still FREE!). I’ve been working hard at finding a solution to allow international buyers the convenience of buying directly on-line and the new Paypal shipping calculator has allowed me to add this feature to my site.

Posted by Susan Heidi - March 16th, 2008

Yes, it’s official - I’ll be showing my work at this year’s NY Comic Con in the Artist Alley. I’m so excited to take part in what is dubbed as the East Coast’s biggest and most exciting popular culture convention. New York Comic Con is the second largest pop culture convention in America and the only one that takes place in the comic book, publishing, media, and licensing capital of the world — Gotham City . This is my first ever venture into the world of “Cons” and right in my own backyard! I’ll be showing some original paintings & sketches and the presses are hot at work ramping up inventory of art prints. There will be some neat giveaways, too! (while supplies last, of course)

Bettie Page by Dave Stevens

I was saddened to learn this morning that pinup artist and creator of “The Rocketeer” Dave Stevens, who famously drew Bettie Page as the Rocketeer’s girlfriend and is credited with the resurgance of Bettie as a pop culture icon, passed away on Tuesday at the untimely age of 52 after a long battle with leukemia. My condolences go out to all of Dave’s family, friends, and fans. As a tribute to Dave, I’ve posted two of his works here that you are probably very familiar with.
