You may already know Nicholas Brendon as an actor or possibly even as a writer. But did you know that Nicky has recently started painting? Now YOU have the chance to receive one of Nicky’s original paintings for your very own.

Nicky’s new interest in painting began with one small art request from a fan in March of 2019. Since then, it has grown to a full time obsession! Nicky has created several paintings using various art mediums in just a few short months. He will be sharing his ongoing artistic journey on his Facebook Page and would love to know one of his paintings is in the hands of a fan who can appreciate it.

You can receive one of Nicky’s original paintings by becoming a Facebook Supporter and helping him reach his goal of 114 members by the end of the year. Supporters will also receive exclusive content, live videos, watch parties, random gifts, shout-outs, and discounts by subscribing.

A lucky randomly chosen supporter* will be picked by Nicky to receive one of his original paintings once his Supporter goal is met.

Don’t miss out…become a Facebook Supporter today, just click here!

*To be eligible to win an original painting from Nicky, you must subscribe by December 31, 2019 and be an active supporter on January 31, 2020 when the lucky winner is chosen.

Nicholas Brendon’s Paints & Stakes Party at Potions – New Orleans (LA)

Nicholas Brendon’s Paints & Stakes Party at Potions (Happiness Runs Amok 2019 Tour Finale!)

*New Orleans (LA)*

The Event: The Nicky Brendon Experience – Paints and Stakes Meet & Greet PLUS VIP After Party at Vampire Speakeasy ($25+)

Enjoy a night with Nicholas Brendon at one of the most renowned Vampire Speakeasy’s in all of New Orleans. (Limited tickets available!)

NICHOLAS BRENDON is an American Actor, Writer, and Artist traveling the world on his Happiness Runs Amok…because I give Amok Tour! New Orleans is the last meet & greet event scheduled for the year, or maybe ever…

He’s best known for playing the role of “Xander Harris” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and “Kevin Lynch” on Criminal Minds, he is offering a memorable experience for any Nicky and Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan!

A real chance to chat, get a hug, take photos, get memorabilia signed (or choose from one of his photos!), and ask all the questions you’ve always wanted to ask…nothing is off limits! Prepare yourself for an evening hanging with Nicky and other fans in a relaxed, judgement-free zone where everyone is welcome – but attendance is limited (20-25 on average) so get your tickets now before it’s too late!

What’s The Nicky Experience?


Unlike a comic con, there are no long lines, no big crowds, and you spend the entire event in the company of Nicky (minus smoke breaks). Also note he is 100% authentic, unscripted, uncensored, and spontaneous…not for the faint of heart. You will feel accepted, included, at ease, and have every opportunity to let your fandom flag fly!

If there are any questions, please email us, check FAQ’s, or read his reviews!

What’s a Paints & Stakes party?

Dabble in the dark arts and crafts (PAINT, crayon, ink, etc.) with Nicky who loves to create! Watching your favorite STAKE-worthy moments, ask questions, listen to Nicky’s commentary and enjoy your local “Scooby Crew”.

What’s a VIP After party?

Afterwards, VIP guests will remain and receive their Slayer starter kit. From there you’ll have a Bronze-worthy good time with an additional hour. Activities could include more Paints & Stakes, Xander-Mania (a twist on trivia), or listen to Nicholas sing his favorite songs or read his favorite photography.

Miss Green, Nicky’s service dog, will be joining him at some events and will be raising money for a local non-profit organization.

Please email any suggestions for deserving programs in your local area.

You can follow her adventures on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter!
