Commission Sketches

I will be doing commission sketches during Gallifrey One, but I expect my sketch list to fill up FAST, so if you’re hoping to get a sketch from me, try to stop by my  table in the Dealers Room as early as possible.

All of my convention sketches are black ink on 9×12″ bristol. I will also draw on sketch covers and in sketchbooks, and on …other things… by request. Payment due when you pick up the completed sketch.

My Gallifrey One 2018 Sketch Rates are…

  • Full Figure: $100 for the first character + $80 for each additional character
  • Head Sketch (shoulders & up): $60

Art Prints

I will have all of my prints available during Gallifrey One at the usual reduced convention prices:

  • 11×17″ Color Prints: $20 each or 3 for $50
  • 8.5″x11″ Color Prints:  $10 each
  • 8.5″x11″ Black & White Prints:  $5 each

I’ve got a number of new Doctor Who and Young Justice prints since last year’s Gallifrey One including:

And lots favorites from past years:

Jon Pertwee Homage PrintBat Wolf Art Print   Last Look Doctor Who print by Christopher Jones
 

And popular 8.5″ x 11″ $10 prints.

 

You can find a full selection of my prints, including more Doctor Who andYoung Justice prints, on my Etsy store.

Finally:

And, just to cover a few other questions I often get on Twitter:

  • Autographs are always free and I’ll sign anything you bring me. (Check out my guide to asking for signatures and drawings at conventions!)
  • I do not charge for photos and I am happy to take a photo with anyone who asks!
  • I’m happy to do interviews, podcasts, snippets, goofy stuff, and whatever any day but Sunday, but the earlier you can drop by, the better!

I really am looking forward to everyone at Gallifrey One this weekend! Come say hello!

Now taking Commission Pre-orders for New York & Grand Rapids Comic Cons

I finally have a gap in my comics schedule and for a limited time am taking commissions for custom sketches. I get lots of requests outside of conventions, but am usually dealing with comic book deadlines that are too tight for me to consider additional work, so now’s your chance!

I am taking advance orders for New York Comic Con and Grand Rapids Comic Con, as well as orders to be sent by mail.

New York Comic Con (Pre-Order Deadline September 25)
October 5-8, 2017 – New York City, NY
http://www.newyorkcomiccon.com/

Grand Rapids Comic Con (Pre-Order Deadline October 10)
October 20-22, 2017 – Grand Rapids, MI
http://www.grcomiccon.com/

I will appearing at all three of those conventions and will be taking orders and commission sketches there, but my sketch list fills up FAST, so even if you’re hoping to see me there ordering your sketch in advance is the best way to make sure you can get the original art you want. Plus, for ordering and paying in advance, I’m offering a FREE PRINT with any order of $100 or more. My full selection of prints can be seen in my Etsy store. Let me know which print you’d like to get for free with your commission when ordering.

All of my convention sketches are black ink on 9×12″ bristol. I will also draw on sketch covers and in sketchbooks by request. I have a supply of the Doctor Who: The Third Doctor sketch cover variants available for $5 each.

Sketch Rates

Here’s my sketch rates right now. Samples of different varieties of sketches are below!

  • Full Figure: $100 for the first character + $80 for each additional character
  • Head Sketch or Head-and-Shoulder: $60
  • + $5 for Doctor Who Sketch Cover Book:
    The same rate structure applies to artwork done on a sketch cover. I can provide the Doctor Who: The Third Doctor sketch variant, but anything else you would have to provide.

I expect demand to exceed my available time, so I will commit to commissions on a first-come, first-served basis. Place your order early so you don’t miss out!

There are already reviews starting to surface for the first issue. Here are a few to check out:

Recently I went over my process for bringing the Third Doctor art to the page for Comics Alliance. Check that out if you really geek out about the details like I do.

Here’s a couple interviews Paul Cornell did about the series.

Paul Cornell returns to Doctor Who comics with “The Heralds of Destruction!” When something enormous crashes into Bedfordshire, the Doctor, Jo Grant, and the forces of UNIT under Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart mobilize immediately, only to find themselves in the middle of a pitched battle against a terrifying invader. But the shocking face that awaits their return to base may tip the whole world off its axis! It’s classic third Doctor action as you’ve never seen it before!
