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 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!

CONvergence Badge Art: #CVG2005

I’m counting down to CONvergence 2012 on July 5-8 this year, and sharing some highlights from past year’s badge art that I’ve done for the convention.

In addition to the Guest of Honor badges like those I posted yesterday, I’ve also done most of the registration badges over the years. These are the badges that actually get you past our badging stations and give you access to Programming, ConSuite, and the other amenities of the convention.

#CVG2005 – Adult Badge

We have different badges for different age ranges of attendees, and I try to give each badge it’s own distinctive color scheme, so they are distinguishable at a glance even from a distance. I also need to allow room in the design for individual badge names and numbers to be superimposed.

#CVG2005 - ConCom Badge

#CVG2005 – ConCom Badge

The 2005 theme was Superheroes – which you can see by all the badges here. This badge was designated members of the Convention Committee, and was individualized with each ConCom member’s name and title.

#CVG2005 - Finance on Duty

#CVG2005 – Finance on Duty

Our Finance people handle the money that flows in and out of the convention over the weekend, and they get their own badges, too. Bruce Wayne seemed like an appropriate art choice for the year’s theme.

#CVG2005 - Performer

#CVG2005 – Performer

Some people who aren’t paid members of the convention still need access for a few hours, like musicians and other performers appearing at the con. This is what they got for badge art in 2005.

If you’re coming to #CVG2012 be sure to look me up! I’ll be doing two signings and on a bunch of panels.
