Conventionless Convention Sketches - Fall 2014

I made a mention on Twitter that I would be doing a Conventionless Convention Sketch deal in November. Since then I have been getting a lot of emails about it. Thanks for all the interest! So starting today I will start the list with the plan to start working on the sketches on November 1st which is when I plan to be done with the commissions I have on the board.

So here we go! 

Samples from the last round of Conventionless Convention Sketchs

CONVENTIONLESS CONVENTION SKETCHES (CCS)! It's just like a regular con sketch that I would do for you at a convention, except no crowds, no convention hall food, no hotel bill, and no travel. And the price is the same as a show sketch. You only have to pay extra for shipping. Still cheaper than going to a show. If you have been waiting to get a black and white, inked single character sketch from me, now is the time to get it. If not for yourself, maybe you want a gift for that special someone? The holidays are just around the corner!

Here are the CCS details...


$50.00 for a single character, inked on 11" x 17" bristol board. I will not be doing multiple characters on a single board. Shipping is $15.00. No matter how many sketches you get! Buy 1: Shipping is $15.00! Buy 20, shipping is $15.00! This shipping cost is for the US only, sorry. If you are outside the US, please contact me for shipping costs.

I have not set a specific amount of requests that I will take. I will just see what the requests are and see what I can handle. I am planning to begin them on November 1st and complete them by Dec. 10th. Any background elements will be at my discretion. Finished art will be mailed each Thursday. Payment is PayPal only. (No e-checks, please).

This part is really important:

If you are interested, send me an email to gene_gonzales(at)mac(dot)com. Please use "Conventionless Convention Sketch" in the subject line and let me know what you would like. That address and subject line are very important. It helps me sort the requests from other emails. That email address is also my PayPal account, but check with me before sending money, please. I do reserve the right to turn down requests that I don't feel comfortable drawing. If you have any questions, please email me.

Please tell your friends, family, and local politicians. Tweet it on Twitter, Tumble it on Tumblr, Pin it on Pinterest, Face it on Facebook...Okay, that one didn't sound right, but you get the idea. Please get the word out any way you can. Thanks! :)

I had so much fun at the Tampa Bay Comic Con last week I thought I would open up my commission list. This is not a Conventionless Convention Sketch list, this is open for anything in black and white or in color. Here are the prices:

11" x 17" inked on bristol board: $50.00 (plus $12.00 shipping)

11" x 17" inked on bristol board with a 8.5" x 11" digital color print: $100.00  (plus $12.00 shipping)

11" x 17" (approximate) mixed media painted: 150.00  (plus $12.00 shipping)

Sketch cover one character: Inked: $75 Color: $100.00  (plus $8.00 shipping)

If you order more than one we can combine them to save on shipping.

If you have something in mind that doesn't fit this list just email me and I can give you a quote.
