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

Grand Rapids Comic Con (Pre-Order Deadline October 10)
October 20-22, 2017 – Grand Rapids, MI

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!

• Batgirl takes on Match — alone!
• Alpha Squad infiltrates Brainiac’s ship as it hovers above Metropolis!
• Superboy and the Justice League battle their captor, Kylstar!

That’s the info from the official DC solicitation. The action is getting pretty epic, I can assure you! I’m still having a great time drawing the new Season 2 Young Justice characters, plus all the amazing guest heroes and villains! This is the full reveal of the cover I was teasing a few weeks ago, showing the villain Kylstar. He’s an existing character – a lesser-known bad guy from Greg Weisman’s days on Captain Atom – but he’s been given a bit of a Young Justice makeover. And the Justice League are in trouble! The Invasion continues!

Young Justice #19 is still on the stands, and #20 will be out THIS WEDNESDAY! You can find Young Justice at your local comics shop or in digital form!

Coming in September: Young Justice INVASION!

Young Justice #18

When you see a solicitation for an upcoming issue of Young Justice, you’re getting a peek into my future.

The way the timing works out, the issue you see being advertised is either the issue I’m currently working on or about to start work on. So as you can see, I’m about to be drawing a lot of gorillas…
