MEGACON 2010 - Advance Sketch List

It's that time folks! MegaCon in Orlando Florida (March 12-14) is my first convention of 2010. Nice to have that so close to where I live. As I tend to do, I am opening up an advance sketch list. The reason for me to do this is normally for the first couple of hours things can be a bit slow on the first day of the show. Having a list in hand means I don't get bored. :)

Here's the deal:

Inked sketches, single figure, on 11" x 17" Bristol Board: $50.00
Acrylic painted single figure on 12" x 16" (approximate size): 125.00
Canson pieces, single figure on 11" x 17": 125.00.
(Knowing the character requested in advance will allow me to select the right color paper from my files)
I may ask for reference if I don't know the character or I can't find it on the web at the show.
You can email me links to references before the show. I can alway print them out and take them with me.

You must be attending the show. Or at least have someone you trust with your cash to pick up the art, pay me, and give you the art. I'm not responsible if the art doesn't reach you. :)

No advance payment. You can pay for the art when you pick it up. I do request that if you are on my list and are not going to make it, please let me know.

An advantage to getting on the list early gives me some time to think about your request(s), bounce ideas around in my head and maybe even doodle ideas in my sketchbook. But I will not get any pieces done before the convention. My workload is pretty heavy and I do have three commissions that need to be done before I head to the show.

I will be sitting with Joe Pekar in the Black section, table 12. I am really looking forward to this show. There are so many of you that I get to see at MegaCon so it really is like hanging out with friends.

If you have any questions, please ask.

I was JUST wondering when this will be posted.

I'd like an Alice in Wonderland. No specifics, just have fun with it. There have been numerous versions of this, so there is no right or wrong, as such is the deal with like, say a Batman or whatnot.

Maybe something on a little of the cheesecake side, but PG-13. I mean, I know how you love the ladies ;)

Wishing I could make it to Megacon....maybe one of these years!

Hope you have a lot of advance orders Gene and that you get more at the show itself! Take lots of pics so you can share!!

Lan - Alice? A little on the cheesecake side? Hmmmm. I think I could get into that. :) Great idea! Sounds good, Lan, thanks! You are on the list.

Royce - It would be great if you made it down sometime. It's a really fun show. I will be definitely be taking pictures to share.

I love your advanc sketch list "advertisement". I am sure the list will fill up quickly! Won't make Megacon, but maybe Pittsburgh!


Gene Gonzales said...

Thanks Gary. I will be in Pittsburgh. And there will be an advance sketch list set up for that show a couple of weeks before. :)

Lan Pitts said...

Yeah, a little bit. Nothing really "sexy" as it is "fun".

Gene Gonzales said...

You know me Lan, I tend to favor a playful sexy to any other. :)

Looking forward to seeing you, Joe and everyone else! Con - Feva!

That's true, Gene. I'm sure you'll knock it out.
