I'll be at Cincinnati Comic Expo next weekend, doing sketches and signing autographs. So I thought, why not show off some previous commissions people have gotten?
FIRST, a big thank you to @steevc for sending me my tablet back! I had accidentally put it into his package when he ordered some Arsenic Lullaby comics...from England ( I live near Chicago USA). Astonishingly it made it to Steve intact and functional, and he sent it back to me...think that would have happened to an order placed on Facebook? FUCK NO. It would have been pawned and the money used to by a dvd collection of Mattlock.
I get all kinds of requests, some large some small. Most of the time they want some Arsenic Lullaby characters mixed in. As always...I do my best to earn my money...
we'll start small with some sketch cards- These are characters from the books of Joseph Linsner, Dawn and Sinful Suzie
Whoever came up with the idea of published blank "sketch covers" versions of comics deserves a medal. These are perfect size to do at a convention. It a small enough size that you don't have to spend too long on it or get too involved with composition and still be able to hand back a pretty damn cool piece of original art (uhm...for a fee...bwhahahaha)
These next few have Voodoo Joe, his zombie fetus henchman, Baron Von Donut and others from A.L. If you're not familiar with those characters...shame...on...you, for depriving yourself of the joy.
You can find Voodoo Joe story here
Baron Von Donut story here
This next one takes a little explaining...someone found a picture in an old fanzine where some guy who drew a character called "wolverine" which had powers/characteristics of the Marvel character...6 months or so before Marvel introduced him. I don't remember all the details about the whole thing, but I got a request to put that version of the character onto a Marvel sketch cover.
These next to were several day projects...this type stuff you have to ask for ahead on time. Even if I brought all my supplies (t-squares, straight edges, centrolinead, ink well) There's no way I could do this with 6yr olds dressed as super heroes running around.
You can see me and my work in person at Cincinnati Comic Expo next weekend!

!!!!the tags list on Steemit is generated by code...which puts tags up there based on ONLY popularity of use. You will notice that as of yet #comics does not exist there. So what we have been doing is using the hashtag #comics every single time we comment on my posts ( or any other posts if you like). It doesn't matter if it doesn't make sense to use it...the code doesn't know the difference!!!!
