Reserve your covers today!
FIRST AND FORMOST
Every Trump Presidential Inauguration cover is individually hand-painted, numbered and signed by my hand, from a strictly limited edition.
Main lot cover- 175 hand-painted $20
Cinderella Variety- 40 hand-painted $24
Artist's Proofs- 40 hand-painted $24
Unpainteds- 20 produced $10
In order to collect artist's proofs and all varieties, you must in addition collect one main lot.
This guideline is lifted 6 months following the release date.
If you are a Bevil subscriber, you can relax, as your regular topical event slot has been reserved. This includes the cinderellas and artist's proofs.
MAIN LOT- $20
In settling on the color scheme for the main lot, I wanted to be sure it was as dynamic and attractive as the varieties. This was a difficult portrait to ink. It took several attempts before I felt I'd captured the Donald Trump we've come to recognize in these past several months.
ARTIST'S PROOF- $24
You Bevil collectors will notice the absence of the Artist's Proof logo. I was undecided whether to make this or the"lightening" variety the Artist's Proofs, so I held off on applying the AP logo. I'll need to insert the logo when they return from being cancelled. I'm hesitant to send them through the printer, as it's just a little rough on the envelope. My hope is to apply a micro cinderella displaying the AP logo. If I can pull it off, it should be attractive. After cancelling, the mask is removed, creating the optical illusion of the cancel traveling behind the dome.
LIGHTENING VARIETY $24
This was a close runner-up to being selected as the main lot. I like this color version a lot.
Sure, it conveys a message. Not a critical one, but rather is symbolic of President Trump's leadership style. I'll wish I had painted 100 of these.
A favorite among Bevil collectors. the unpainteds illustrate a Bevil issue always begins with a solid ink rendering. Much work goes into an issue long before I reach for a paint brush. If my portrait ink drawing isn't spot-on, no amount of painting will save it. I can never hope a good paint job will save a mediocre ink portrait.

Thanks for collecting,
COLOR STUDIES- $20
These and several others were created while searching for the color scheme for the main lot issue. Since they were passed over, they became 1-of-a-kinds, though numbered at the end of the main lot. You're limited to one, after you collect one from the main lot. I'll post the others later, maybe 8 in all.
