Prices
8.5"X11"  on  bristol board
black and white w/ marker wash (single character w/minimal background) $50.00
(shipping not included)


If you want multiple characters then the price increases depending on the amount of characters.  
I prefer to work at a smaller scale because it's fast and easier for me to get the work done.

Also I will get a list started, so feel free to contact me if youy are interested in a piece.  I will take ten commissions at a time and as I complete a piece.  I will alert then next person in line to an open spot.  If you would like to be on this list ifeel free to contact me at

part of my New Years resoloution is to definitely do more art in 2010.  i will be riding the train more this year.  which followers of my deviant site know, is prime drawing time for me.  i think that i'll focus less on the monster stuff this year (not entirely true).  that way i can draw everything and anything that comes to mind.  which will hopefully be fruitfull and interesting to you the viewer.  so i will do my best to get a lot of work done and continue to push myself artistically.  thanks for hanging in there with me and i hope that you enjoy the upcoming work.

o.k. for those of you that live in L.A. please think about coming down to the first annual Long Beach Comic Con at the long beach conventiion center.  i pesonally like the smaller show because it gives people more time to do all the little things they can't at the bigger shows.  so please come on downif you can.  the artist guest list is getting bigger by the day.  so take a look at the shows website for more info.  i hope to see some of you deviants ther.

Once again, WOW!!!  I would like to thank all of my fellow Deviants and everyone else that came out in support of my second book.  i can't tell you how much it means that you would spend your hard earned cash on my artwork.  especailly in these crazy financial days we are experiencing.  I really do appreciate it.   The thing i like the most about comic con, is interacting with all the fans and my fellow amazing artist.  i sid it before but it takes alot of conviction to throw yourself out to the masses to be judged.  so to my fellow artist in artyist alley i salute you all again.  Now that's over, I'm going to go lie down for a while to catch up on some much neede rest.  talk to you all soon.
