Today I feature Blok from the Legion of Super-Heroes. More specifically the Five-Years-Later storyline. If you are familiar with the nature of the character I hope this rings true to you.

Sailor Pluto - CCS #2

For today's Conventionless Convention Sketch, I present Sailor Pluto. (I have to wonder if Pluto's demotion affects her in any way)  :)

Conventionless Convention Sketch 2014

I have a window of opportunity to do some commissioned sketches over the next few weeks. If you are interested in getting one, check out the info below.


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?

I will be doing a MegaCon Advance Sketch List next month. So if you are attending MegaCon in March, watch this blog for the start of that sketch list. I will not be adding MegaCon requests to this round sketches.

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! (Just an FYI, my normal studio price starts at $75.00 plus shipping!). This shipping cost is US only, sorry. If you are outside the US, contact me for shipping costs.

I am going to take a total of 20 commissions. Assuming I get 20 requests, of course. Any background elements will be at my discretion. I will begin working on the sketches starting January 24th and all sketches will be done by February 24th. Finished art will be mailed each Thursday. Payment is PayPal only. (No e-checks, please).

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! :)

Word Girl Goes To College

She does look like she could be a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes now that I think about it.
