Yikes! BusyBusyBusy! So much to do in so little time! Now that Cliff Chiang, Brian Wood and I have procured a booth for the convention, we must scramble to make sure our wares are available. (a Sketchbook is a definite for me next year... did not have time to design one this year...)
So, I just wanted to let you know what I will be bringing with me to the big San Diego Comicon International.
Everyone wants to know about commissioned sketches. Will I be doing them and what will they cost? Since I finally have a booth space, I can not only spend time signing and chatting, but drawing and painting as well. I want to make sure that your convention purchase is special and unique. If you are interested in original commissioned sketches,you have three choices.
. All are on 8 x 11 paper which I will provide, based on the kind of sketch you would like. (like a watercolor or something.) Unless you have a sketchbook and would prefer it in there. But, I will do my best to dissuade you from a painting in a regular sketchbook, because it will be all wiggly...)
YOUR OPTIONS INCLUDE-
A black and white pen and ink sketch (Like one of these Deliriums.)or a finished pencil sketch is $100.00.
I have to dig up a finished pencil sketch to post, but, it is all shaded and soft with the tone and stuff...(it's been a long time since anyone asked me to do a pencil one. But, I did some nice ones in Europe! Does anyone have a scan of some of those?)
A black and white painted sketch is 250.00. Like the one you see in that photo from the FX show in Orlando.
I will be doing a limited number of full color painted commissions. Maybe I'll be able to get through one a day with all the other signing and stuff. The price for full color is $500.00
If you contact me before hand about this, you're definitely on the color list. I already have one full color commission. See the prints below for an example of the color commission.
I will also have copies of Magic Trixie #1 for sale.
And, two limited edition prints from Magic Trixie. These are 9 x 12 and fit well in any lovely frame you might see at Target.
There will be some random Tattoo flash created for those of you who wish to adorn your body. I've created these with arms and legs and such in mind. Perhaps you might find something to incorporate into your sleeve or something.
I will have the entire Fables OGN King Cole Art at the con, either at my table or at AlexRossArt and the 5 page House of Mystery story that just appeared in House of Mystery.
I have no Sandman Art left. But, over 30 black and white painted Sandman illustrations will be on sale in October at a Gallery Show in Los Angeles. These pieces were used by Neil Gaiman to pitch a series of Sandman films to Warner Brothers a few years ago. It was really cool because I got to revisit characters I love so much and draw the whole Sandman series! These are some examples.
You can browse through xeroxes of the available art at the booth to see if there's anything that you might like. Hollywood types are free to snap up the entire lot.
