MegaCon Advance Sketch List is Open

Anyone know why I have Barda on the header? :)

MegaCon in Orlando, Florida is coming up fast. The dates are March 21, 22, & 23. I will be sharing a table with the one and only Joe Pekar, we will be at table BLUE 7.

MegaCon is my first convention of 2014 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.

This is a lot to read so email me if you have any questions. Please use the subject line "MegaCon Sketch List". Actually use that subject line please. I have a smart mailbox that separates emails with that subject line in order for me to stay organized. Thanks!

Email: gene_gonzales@mac.com or gene@genegonzales.com


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

I will only be doing Acrylic pieces at home to bring with me. I don't plan on doing any at the show.

Acrylic/Watercolor: single figure on 11" x 17" (approximate size): 150.00

UPDATE:  I've had a few request for my sketch cover prices:

One character inks: $75

One character color: $100

Two character color: $150

Email me if you have a different request.

Payment: 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: I will be accepting major credit cards at the convention. I can use PayPal or Square to accept credit cards. Fast and secure.

Cash: You can pay for the art when you pick it up.

If you were to ask what I prefer, Paypal would be my first preference for payment. It makes it easier to keep track of everything and it helps prioritize the work.

This advance list is only for those attending MegaCon 2014 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.

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 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 be bring prints to the show. There will be three sizes to choose from 8.5" x 11", 11" x 17" and 13" x 19".

I have also found a stash of some of my previous sketchbooks. I will have those at the show as well.

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!
