Now taking Sketch Commission Pre-Orders for ECCC and C2E2!

 

I am currently taking pre-orders for commission sketches for Emerald City Comic Con (March 14-17 / Artist Alley Table II-8) and Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (March 14-17/ Artist Alley Table X-10).

I’ll 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.

  • Two Characters – Full Figure: $180

A new commission – Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!

Avengers Secret Wars inks prev Avengers Secret Wars prev Earths Mightiest Heroes - Framed prev


I just completed this commission for veteran Marvel Comics writer Christopher Yost. It’s a tribute to the Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes animated TV series, on which Chris served as Head Writer and Story Editor. It’s based on the cover to Secret Wars #9 by Mike Zeck (which you can see below). All the changes to the text on the cover are references to the Avengers: EMH series and were worked out by Chris Yost, as were the character substitutions and the change of setting to in front of Stark Tower in New York City. According to Chris this is a piece he’s been thinking about having done “for a long time.”

On the left you can see the original hand-drawn line art for the piece, minus the head-shots for the upper left corner box and the Ultron head in the UPC Code Box (which sported a black costume Spider-man head in the Direct Sales version of the original Secret Wars cover). In the center is the composition of that line art with the other elements including those heads and Photoshop-rendered logos and text. On the right is the final color version which, which is being produced as a print and will be delivered with the original artwork as part of the commission to the good Mr. Yost.

Secret Wars 009-00

As a reminder – I am currently accepting commissions online for sketches and illustrations. My originals are all black-and-white line art, but I will add digital color and provide a print along with the original art for an additional fee. You can read more about ordering a commission piece from me here.

Moon Knight Rises!

Moon Knight design color & line

I’ve been meaning to do a Moon Knight print for ages, and I finally had to take the time to at least work out how I was going to draw my version of the character.

My fandom for the character goes back to the run of artist Bill Sienkiewicz, so I wanted to bring some of that sleekness to my take, and I like the bodysuit under the cape to be a contrasting smokey, dark silver, rather than all white. I do like the more ragged, tattered look some artists have more recently given the character, but that’s not what I wanted to do this time around. Much like Batman, I don’t think there’s only one correct way to draw Moon Knight, so the purpose of this piece was to work out which way I wanted to depict the character for my upcoming pin-up.

You can see in the color version on the left how I intend to treat the character. He might be a little more textured in the final piece, but here I just wanted to be clear on the design so I kept it simple. I promise that the final Moon Knight print will be a little more action-oriented than this static pose, but I’ve gotten such a strong response every time I’ve mentioned my interest in Moon Knight recently I wanted to share this design and let people know that a pin-up/print was in the works!

On the right you can see the original line art, which I decided to draw on nice paper and make available in an auction on eBay, so check out the auction if you’re interested.

I’m also still accepting orders for original commissions. You can read more about ordering a commission piece from me here.

Another commission: Captain America

Captain America pin-up inks prev

I just finished another commission and to share it. I may make a print out of this one when I can find the time to color it. I would probably title it something heroic like “Leading the Charge” as opposed to something more snarky like “I’d be dead if I didn’t have this indestructible shield, but you guys follow me anyway!” Eh, maybe not.

I’m still accepting commissions online for sketches and illustrations. This above Captain America piece is a full 11″x17″ illustration commission, drawn in ink on bristol art paper. You can read more about ordering a commission piece from me here.

The Batman vs Nightlinger, Dr. Doom (and other commissions)

Batman vs Nightlinger

Here’s a piece I just finished for my good friend and collaborator Steven Philip Jones featuring his character Nightlinger fighting The Batman.

I wanted to share the piece in general, but it also nicely dovetails with my current offer of accepting commissions online for sketches and illustrations. This is a nice example of a full illustration commission, as is the Doctor Doom piece below. They’re both drawn in ink on 11″x17″  bristol art paper. You can read more about ordering a commission piece from me here.
