Remember guys, I’m generally available for commissioning art on Blank Sketch Variant covers.
If you want something on a cover, drop me a note.
Generally speaking I start the commissions at $40 shipped in the US. Price will squeak up a bit depending on complexity. This is fairly rare though.
If I provide the cover, there will be an upcharge based on cost of the variant to cover my cost.
I also have Personal Sketch Cards available, starting at $20 shipped.
The front of the PSC’s are 100% blank. The rear of the PSC’s look like this.
List of Blank Variant Covers available: Some of these covers are more rare than others and will have an upcharge included in the cost of the commission to cover the cost of purchasing the blank cover variant.

ROM: the Spaceknight. 10″x10″ on canvas, stretched on wood. This one is neat because the background is actual comic panels from a vintage ROM comic.
To build interest in the toy, Parker Brothers licensed the character to Marvel Comics which created a comic book featuring Rom. The comic expanded on the premise that Rom was a cyborg and gave him an origin, personality, set of supporting characters and villains, as well as interaction within the Marvel Universe. The comic was written by Bill Mantlo and initially illustrated by artist Sal Buscema.
The comic book outlasted the toy which it was created to support. The series lasted for 75 issues over a seven year period, with Rom’s regular encounters with mainstream heroes and villains establishing him as part of Marvel continuity.
Also, I’ve got a couple of items available in the shop. Please head over and check it out. Commission work is available as well. Give the gift of original hand painted art for Christmas this year. Make someone happy.

I just completed my contribution to Marvel Premier, a super high end trading card set being released by Upper Deck in October. Every card I did was hand cut, hand painted, and hand packed. This is shaping up to be a really cool set, lots of great talent on board for this one.
No images of actual cards yet, but here are a couple of teaser images, and test paintings I did in preparation for this set.
As always, thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Release Date: 10/02/12
