MEGACON 2011 - Advance Sketch List Is A Go!


Artwork © 2011 Gene Gonzales


It's that time folks! MegaCon in Orlando, Florida (March 25-27) is my first convention of 2011 and it is time to open up the advance sketch list. I will actually work on this list leading up to the convention. Especially the more complicated pieces. There are a few changes to the process this year so please look over the details provided below :)

Prices:

Inked sketches: single figure, on 11" x 17" Bristol Board: $50.00

Acrylic painted: single figure on 12" x 16" (approximate size): 150.00

Canson pieces: single figure on 11" x 17": 125.00.
(Knowing the character request in advance will allow me to select the right color paper from my files.)

Payment: Here is the big changes this year. There will be three options for payment:

PayPal: You may pay in advance for your request using PayPal. Please contact me first with your request before you send money.

Credit Card at the Con: This is the first year I will be accepting major credit cards at a convention. I have signed up with Square (www.squareup.com) in order to do so. Fast and secure.

Cash: You can pay for the art when you pick it up. I know, cash and carry, how quaint. ;)


Please send your questions and requests with "MegaCon Sketch List" in the subject line of your email. This will really help me keep track of everything.

This advance list is only for those attending MegaCon 2011 in person. I do request that if you are on my list and are not going to make it, please let me know. And if possible, please pick up your artwork as soon as you can when you arrive at the convention. Or pay for your spot on the list, whichever applies.

I may ask for reference if I don't know the character or if 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 if I need to .

An advantage to getting on the list early gives me some time to think about your request(s), bounce ideas around in my head, maybe doodle ideas in my sketchbook, and possibly show up at the con with your finished piece. There is a finite amount of requests I can take. I do not know what that number is because I don't know the requests. So sign up early and often. :)

I will be sharing a table with Joe Pekar again. I believe we are in the same spot as last time (Black section, table 12), but I will confirm that as we get closer to the show. I am really looking forward to this show. There are so many of you that I only get to see at MegaCon so it really is like hanging out with friends.

If you have any questions about the sketch list, please ask. And even if you are not getting something but will be at the show, please drop by and say "hi".

Other Convention Stuff

I will have other original art at the show, some you have seen here on this blog. I will also have my new sketchbook. This book will feature commissions/pin-ups done on color Canson paper. I should have a box of the books in the next week or two. When I do I will post about it.

This was a lot of information to cover. If anything is confusing to you, let me know and I will do my best to clarify. And please excuse any typos. :)

Here we go!

I will put in a good word for you Gene. She is getting too clingy for me anyway. :)
