With Marvel Premier wrapped up and the next set on the horizon not quite ready to prep for, I’d like to remind everyone of a couple of things.

I do commissions.  Any size, trading card size, 11×14, 16×20, I’ve even done a giant wooden commission.  Please don’t hesitate to inquire about a piece for your home or office.

A couple of commission examples.

Fan Days Oct 8th and 9th

This weekend is Fan Days in Irving, Texas.  I’ll have a table in Artists Alley, I’ll be joined by my wife and this is some of what we will be bringing with us.  If you’re in the area come by and check it out.  Lots of great guests, great artists, and fun Star Wars times for everyone.

This is just a small assortment of items, all are original and no prints.  We’ll have lots more with us that’s not pictured here.

October 8th and 9th is Fan Days at the Irving Convention Center.  I’ll have a table set up in artists alley, if you’re in the DFW area this weekend you really should make it an effort to attend the show.  Lots of celebrities for autographs, tons of cool vendors, some great artists, and quite a few killer comic book creators will be there.

This is one of the pieces that will be with me and my wife at our table.  Stop by and see us.  Look for the banner with the rather large orange 13 on it.

This piece measures approx 12.5″x35.5″ and is one solid porcelain tile.  It will be available for purchase and is one of a kind.  The pictures really don’t do the tile justice, it’s got a nice pattern on it.
