Convention season is right around the corner! This year, I’m making myself available to do pre-order for commissions. If you’d be interested in owning some original art from me, here are some reasons why it’d be a good idea to pre-order:
- I’ll have more time to spend on the piece
- I’ll have easier access to any reference I need
- I won’t have to turn anyone down because there’s not enough time
- You can just swing by my table for pick-up, no waiting!
The fine print:
- Sketch pieces are $10
- Greyscale marker pieces are $20
- Color marker pieces are $30
- Commissions are done on 5.5 x 8″ smooth Bristol board.
- Pricing is for a single character (not counting small animal, so for example, a commission of Bolin from Legend of Korra could include Pabu)
- No advance payment required, pay at pick-up during the con
- To order, e-mail me with the subject Commission Pre-Order
- Include your contact info, commission type, and subject
What might they look like?
Below are example images. As commissions, they were mostly photographed rather than scanned, so I apologize for the image quality.
Sketch commission featuring Yoko from Gurren Lagann.
Greyscale marker commission featuring Catwoman from Dark Knight Rises.
Color marker commission featuring Ryu from Street Fighter.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Click the below image to get a better look at a bunch more of my favorite commissioned pieces from previous cons.
Hope to see you all at some conventions this year!
With the year coming to an end, I’ve decided to do some clean-up and redesigning of my site. If you see anything particularly weird and out of place, please disregard it for the time being!
I don’t have a lot of art news for this post, as I’ve had a lot of personal stuff going on. In November, I moved to a new (and much nicer apartment), went home to Iowa for my parents’ birthdays and a steampunk convention, and then in the first week of December, I adopted a second cat to keep my first company. The new addition is a big cuddle muffin named Westley. I posted a few photos of these developments below!

Otherwise, I’m still plugging away at Memorial and Wander! The third issue of the latter is coming soon…
Happy All Hallow’s Eve to everyone! I thought I’d take the holiday as an opportunity to post about the projects I’ve been working on all month. Today marked the debut of:
- Wander #2 – The epic tale of a sarcastic grad student in a fantasy world continues!
Also, this year, Rich Ellis and I went all out on our Halloween costumes! As Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield from the original Resident Evil game, we were pretty badass.
We also took a prom picture.
I am busy, busy, busy lately! Finishing Wander #2, coloring some new material for Memorial, and working up a new piece for Emerald City’s 2013 Monsters and Dames artbook. However, I don’t want to leave my blog in the dark until all that comes out!
So I wanted to take a moment to gush about Rose City Comic Con. It was the first year for this Portland conventions, and it was a hit! I met a lot of local artists and the audience was wonderful and enthusiastic. I debuted my charms, and they sold like hotcakes! I actually sold out of both the cat and fox designs. I also took several commissions, of course, including a color marker piece of Ryu from Street Fighter. Check him out:
In other news, I’m going to be moving in November! I’ll still be in Portland, but in a sparkly new apartment. I’m going to be holding a Hunger Games themed housewarming party, and I’ll be doing a piece of art to announce it. So, if you’re a Hunger Games fan, help me decide which characters to draw with the poll on the right! Who most represents the Hunger Games?
