Tampa Bay Comic Con is next week.. The dates are August 1-3.. I will be sitting next to my travel mate, the one and only Joe Pekar, though I am not sure where that will be. As soon as I know the location I will post it here.
This is the first time I am appearing at this show and I figure it's 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. Though the prices haven't changed, there are a few changes to the process this year so please look over the details provided below :)
This is a lot to read so email me if you have any questions. Please use the subject line "Tampa Bay Comic Con 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: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Inked sketches: single figure, on 11" x 17" Bristol Board: $50.00
Acrylic/Watercolor: single figure on 11" x 17" (approximate size): 150.00
I will only be doing acrylic pieces at home to bring with me. I don't plan on doing any at the show.
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. You can also pay with PayPal at the show using your smart phone and PayPal app.
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. That doesn't mean you have to pay in advance. You can easily use your smart phone and PayPal app at the show.
This advance list is only for those attending Tampa Bay Comic Con 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'm excited about going to a new show, especially one that is just across the bay from me. Also, please spread the word through any social media that you may use. I would really appreciate it.
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. Both 8.5" x 11" and 11" x 17".
My new sketchbook will be available 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!
