A) While Rog's site will update itself automagically you can go to http://www.fureauction.com/profile.php?user=RogMinotaur&outside=1 that should have all her FurEauction ones listed.
Q) What happens when I see a picture that I REALLY want but don´t want to go through the hassle of buying it on auction.
A) Ahhh a major advantage to being on the email list. Rog Minotaur will listen to all reasonable offers BEFORE a picture is placed on auction. That is usually 24 after the email list gets it. So if a picture you really want is there make her an offer.
Q) Does she ship out of the United States
A) Additional shipping costs will be required. Please contact Rog Minotaur for more details.
Q) How does Rog Minotaur determine what gets prints
A) Well Rog Minotaur would LOVE to have all her art as print she has to be choose. IT cost money to make prints and well she hasn´t had her family die in a plane crash so she has to be choose the best prints to sell. She usually determines prints by a few factors.
- sales - How well it sells if an item sells for 45$ on auction there will most likely. A lot of low selling items will have low selling prints. High selling items will usually have good selling prints.
If she likes the print. Heck she´s not going to sell stuff that isn´t good even if people want it. She wants to sell her best prints J
- IF it would make great wallpaper for the bathroom. Some prints do sit around for a long time and Rog has to look at them a lot sometimes some of the prints are destroyed to make room for new ones.
Q) I notice you have limited prints and unlimited prints what the difference?
A) Unlimited prints are done by rabbit valley using card stock paper. We can not ensure the process. They are supervised by the head of rabbit valley.
Limited edition prints are supervised by Rog Minotaur and Kurst. They are signed AND numbered edition. Once they are sold they will be no more. They also come only in size! Print paper is various types - last prints have been in printed on a very heavy card stock.
Q) How do I order prints
A) For limited edition prints just check out www.rogmintaur.com and use the handy dandy web program. It will show you what limited edition prints are available and do all the dirty work for you and figure out the right prices ;)

Q) How long does it take her to do a painting
A) About 24-40 hours. Sometimes it goes fast (under 4 hours for full painting) If things go slow then longer. But that´s a bad sign and usually means the picture isn´t turning out the way Rog Minotaur wants it or her family is taking too much time of her life.
