Gallery Spotlight: Andrew Worley is an artist living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Drawing from a variety of influences, he works mainly in watercolor and oil paints, in an expressive representational style. His subject matter ranges from the surreal to somewhat macabre, with a strong undertone of humor.

When he's not painting, Andrew plays video games, reads comics, and hangs out at bars. He is partial to RPGs, science fiction, rye whiskey, and dark beers. See more of his work at www.monkeyseemonkeypaint.com.

PRE-ORDER your VERY limited-edition Con-Volution 2015 charity shirt, with artwork by our Featured Guest, Artist Frank Wu! "HANDMADE by Droids" will have an EXTREMELY LIMITED number of these available at the convention, but we expect demand to be high, so the only way to guarantee you get one is to pre-order by Sunday September 27th, 2015. This shirt will not be shipped to you. You will need to pick it up from them at their booth at Con-Volution.

A percentage of every purchase will go to support Con-Volution's 2015 charity, 826 Valencia, which is dedicated to supporting students age 6-18 with writing and helping teachers get them enthused about writing. Pre-order your shirts at https://www.handmadebydroids.com/convo2015charitypre.html and learn more about our charity at 826valencia.org.

Wondering what all these images have in common? Each represents a theme of a party at Con-Volution 2015! We hope you'll join us into the wee hours of the morning on our Party Floor as we celebrate the diversity of fandom, perhaps over some Romulan Ale! www.con-volution.com

A member of the 501st Legion, the definitive Star Wars costuming organization, Tim can be seen often wearing the crimson velvet robes of the Imperial Guard.
