"Time Lord" (July 2014)
9”x12” Ink, Gouache, Graphite, and Gel Pen on Bristol. Digital color was added to the top image using the mixed media drawing as source material.
I worked up this drawing (the bottom image) to show an example of what I would be doing for pre-order commissions at Boston Comiccon (August 8-10 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA). Tom Baker is my favorite actor to have played Dr. Who, so he seemed like a good subject to play with. The original black and white drawing will be available to purchase at Boston Comiccon, and I’m going to experiment with some different print options for the color version.
I have done commissions at the last couple of conventions that I exhibited at, but have never set up a commission pre-order online. If you are coming to the convention and know that you want a commission then feel free to shoot me a message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea and how large a piece you are looking for. I will be doing 9”x12” black and white pieces (much like the Black and White image in this post) for $40 and 12”x18” black and white pieces for $80. Commissions take me a long time at conventions since I spend most of my time talking to people and can’t focus as much on drawing. You probably have a better chance of getting a more epic commission if I have time beforehand to plan it out and start sketching. I also did a cover commission last year for a blank cover issue of Daredevil and had a lot of fun with it. Anyone who would want that sort of thing should bring your blank cover books to Boston Comiccon this year.
