Here’s a commission that got completed just in time for New York Comic Con. I finished a number of pieces over the last week, including the long awaited lettered states and remarqued editions. After ten years, they are all completed. I almost can’t believe it.
As of next week, I will be up to date on commissions for the first time since…well, I dunno. The only one I have left is an oil painting, but that is an open-ended work. I want to have it completed by the end of the year.
One of my favorite patrons, Ray, commissioned this piece of the character Malikai from a series by the late Michael Turner called Soulfire.
I used professional quality markers for this. They are great, but my set is drying out. I almost didn’t have enough to finish the job.
Tricky things those markers, and no corrections possible if you botch something.
I was able to scan most of my commissions before I left for New York, but won’t be able to post them until I get back.
I do have a few lettered states (volume II only) and a handful of remarqued editions that I will be able to sell later, but I won’t be taking any orders any time soon. I will let you know when they become available. I will ship the remainder of the books over the next few weeks as time permits. And I thank EVERYONE for their patience!
The only customer we were not able to track down was Devin Timothy Stevens. If he ever pops up, we will have to issue him a refund.
Out of nearly 1000 orders, I guess that’s not too bad, but I have no one to blame but myself for taking so long to get these books completed! I will not be doing this sort of thing again, obviously.
I will not have any limited editions for sale in New York. Sorry. I will have paperback GN’s.
