Now Taking NYCC Commission Sketch Pre-Orders!

I am currently taking pre-orders for commission sketches for New York Comic Con (Oct 4-7). I will in NYCC Artist Alley Booth B11 and will be taking a limited number of sketch commissions at-con, but my sketch list fills up FAST! 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.

I am taking orders for commissions to be shipped by mail as well, but orders tied to a convention appearance will take priority due to the definite time constraints.

All of my convention sketches are black ink on 9×12″ bristol. I will also draw on comic book sketch covers and in sketchbooks by request, but obviously I won’t be able to do the drawing in advance of a convention if I can’t get the sketchbook or sketch cover comic until the con.

Coming to Pikeville Comic Con

On Saturday August 25 I’ll be at Pikeville Comic Con in Pikeville, KY. As usual I’ll have 11″x17″ and 8.5″x11″ prints for sale and am happy to chat with fans and autographs and photos are free (as always)!

Commission Sketches

But what about commission sketches? Yes, I’ll be doing those, too. But it’s a 1-day convention and time will be short. I’ll only have time for a few sketches in between talking to fans at my table throughout the convention day. If you want a sketch from me at Pikeville Comic Con, I recommend emailing me NOW and placing an order in advance. Then I can walk into the convention with the artwork already done and ready for pick-up.

My rates continue to be $60 for a head-and-shoulders character sketch, $100 for a full-figure view of a character. I can add additional characters to the same sketch for $80 per character. My sketches are ink drawings are black and white line art on 9″x12″ Bristol. I’ll do commission sketches for the same rates in sketchbooks or on sketch covers for the same rates if you provide the book.

Contact me at chris@ChristopherJonesArt.com and let me know what you’d like by way of a commission sketch. I’ll email you back with a confirmation or any follow-up questions. You can pay me when you pick the art up at the convention.

Wanting some original art from me but won’t be in Pikeville, Kentucky this Saturday? I’m also taking pre-orders for New York Comic Con in October, and can also send commission sketches by mail (but I’ll have to charge an additional shipping fee for that option).

 11×17 Prints

I’ll have my usual mix of Doctor Who and superhero prints available at the Pikeville convention. My 11″x17″ prints are $20 each or 3 for $50.

 

If you’re a Young Justice fans like me and are chomping at the bit for the premiere of the long awaited 3rd Season, I have a bonanza of prints to tide you over!

  
  

Those are only a few of my 11″x17″ prints – stop my Artist Alley table to see them all!

8.5 x 11 Prints

I’ll also have my selection of 8.5″x11″ prints at $10 (color) and$5 (black & white)

Raven Teen Titans Print Bluepulse Black and White Print with Impulse and Blue Beetle
 
Wonder Woman 77  

As usual, all my prints are available from my Etsy store, but they’re cheaper to get from me in person at my discounted convention prices.

See you in Pikeville!

Now Taking Commissions by eMail – Limited Time Only

I get a lot of requests to do sketch commissions by mail from people that don’t have the opportunity to get one from me at a convention. I currently have a short window in my schedule that will allow me to do a limited number of sketches for fans.

I’m trying to do as many of these as I can in a limited amount of time so I need to keep it simple. Comic book heroes and villains only, sketches will be done in ink on 9″x12″ bristol paper. No sketch covers at this time.

Full Figure: $80 for the first character + $40 for each additional character

Head Sketch (shoulders & up): $60

Because this is being done by mail, I there will be a $10 addition to your total to cover shipping.

If you would like to request a sketch (or more than one), email me at chris@christopherjonesart.com. Tell me the character you want. Many characters have more than one look, whether it be different costumes or designs for animation (i.e. Young Justice, Batman: The Animated Series, etc.) Be specific about what you want. If you choose the Full Figure option I’ll draw your character in an action pose of my choosing, unless you specify what you want (leaping, running, throwing a punch, etc.). If you choose the Head Sketch option, I’ll try to come up with an expression that conveys that character’s winning personality. :)

If I’m able to do the commission you ask for, I’ll let you know by email and provide you with the PayPal payment information and confirm the price. You would then provide me with your shipping information when you make your payment.

I’ve only got so many slots available, so it’s first-come, first-served for as long as this window of opportunity lasts. I’ll post an update to this blog entry with the commission list is closed.
