NOTE: It's December 2021 and this post is still current!


Wouldn't you feel better getting up every day and staring at a piece of awesome artwork that inspired you and reminded you of just why you're getting up in the first place?  (I mean, besides the alarm or eating or...responsibility.)

That said, I'm accepting new commissions again!

For a basic headshot or full figure shot of your favorite character these are the prices:

$65  for a head and shoulders shot.
$125 for a single full figure.

COLOR...Looks like I can do some color now, but it doubles my time spent on the drawing, so unless it's just a spot color (making the dot of Rai's chest red for example) it pretty much doubles the price.

There will be a shipping charge of $10 in both domestic USA and Canada and $25 everywhere else (per order not per piece.)


If you have a special request the price will be on a case by case basis.  I will have judge the amount of work that will go into producing the piece and quote you a price.  These include, figures with backgrounds, recreations of covers, Cover like drawings, and characters in scenes.  Believe it or not, the simple request of adding a background can make a drawing take two, three, or ten times longer than just a figure.  So a simple partial background might be around $150 while a more complete background more like $300.  Scenes and cover-like images would be more.  Basic rule if it takes me as long to do and is as high quality as a cover that I would do for Marvel or Dark Horse then I'm going to charge you like that.  Probably in the $500-$650 range, and for very complex pieces like the Twin Peaks commission below, we're in the $1,200-$2,500 range. The best thing to do here is to contact me with your specific request and we'll work it out.

Also several of you want me to draw on sketch covers.  I can do that but you have to send me the sketch covers.  I don't own any.  The price is the same as if I was drawing on my own Bristol and you're responsible for whatever special packaging you want it shipped in as I will reuse it to send back to you.

I think that's it.
