i'll be doing both HEROES and the OTTAWA COMICCON this year, and i'm opening my pre-con sketch list for both events.

these sketches will be done at home ahead of the show, but i will still be doing some sketches at the table. if you like my work pre-con sketches are the best way to ensure you get something from me at a show since i cap my table list at around 10 and it often fills up before the end of the first day.

all that said, prices for both con and per-con sketches are as follows:

9x12.... b/w $120  /  colour  $180

11x17.. b/w $200  /  colour  $280

extra characters cost extra.

no art direction please.

please email me your requests at the above address with the name of the con and the subject of the sketch in the subject line. example: "HEROES:[subject]"

i'll be accepting no more than 5 for either con.


also, for those inquiring my normal commission list is still shut down. i'll make an announcement if/when it opens back up again.

and now some raccoons i painted recently to help out bill mantlo.

hal-con pre-order commissions open...

hey kids,

i'll be at hal-con this year and due to some unforeseen scheduling stuff won't be occupying a table for as long as i'd thought i would be. so if anyone's got their heart set on a commission or con-sketch the best way to ensure i'll be able to get one done is to pre-book.

i'll be taking on no more than 5. prices will be:

9x12...... b/w $120..... colour $180+
11x17.... b/w $180..... colour $300+

as ever, extra characters and art direction cost extra.

to reserve one please email me at: bigbug1(at)rogers(dot)com and write "HAL-CON COMMISSION" in the subject line.


and now some recent commissions:
