Ahsoka Tano on a blank variant Marvel Comics Darth Vader number one.

This was hand cut on the actual blank variant cover, letting the actual cover create the dark colors.

Here’s a little bit of a different take on the blank sketch cover craze that the publishers are currently in.  Blanks are pretty awesome ways to get your favorite artist to do a sketch for you at conventions on.

I started cutting them and making hand cut die cut blank variants, I just cut the cover, and the actual cover image provides the color portion of the cutting.

A few recent ones I’ve done. Deadpool

Boom! Studios has released the solicits for book releases for June of 2014.  I’ve had the pleasure of doing the incentive cover for Bravest Warriors 21.

All the covers have been released, so I figured why not put them all together in one place.

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.

Bravest Warriors 16 Cover C variant I did.

Got a couple of copies.  If you’re interested in one, only 10 bucks shipped in the US while supplies last.  I only have a few of these.

These are 1:15 variants, meaning comic shops had to order 15 copies of the regular covers to be able to order one copy of cover c.

I’ll even sign them for free.

A huge thanks to Boom-Studios for the opportunity.

Free Comic Book Day was May 4th.  Found a neat little comic shop in Fort Worth called Collected, if you’re in the area, stop by and check out the shop.  It’s pretty neat.

Picked up a few books from them, and they actually had a FCBD blank.

And I went ahead and painted on it.  I give you Abe Sapien.
