2012 Convention Schedule + Commissions

Conventions

I’ll be attending a few conventions this year. You can find them and their dates listed below. Click on the appropriate convention link for more info. Also keep reading for information on commissions.

I will be adding specific and updated information on each convention as they come up. 

Commissions

I will be trying to do pre-show commissions for each of these conventions. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept it goes like this; I draw commissions for you to be picked up at the convention. Simple.

These commission pieces will be single character images rendered in black and white greyscale markers on 11”x14” paper. I will post pricing details for each convention later. You can view some samples from previous years below;

Next I will be accepting pre-show commissions requests for Comic Con Paris. More information on that tomorrow. So please check back.
