forgot I had saved this to my external hard drive and just found it.
Warren Ellis and Molly Crabapple, how could it not rule?
WAALLLL, I’ll spare you the details, but I am in pretty dire financial straits and I need to open up commissions again. I hate to do this because, um, I’m not even done with the last round of commissions (they’re on the plate for this week, though), but I’ve got to raise OHHHHHH about four thousand dollars in the next two months or so. Neat, huh?
To start off, I’m opening up ten slots for Half-Pint Hero commissions only (those are the little cutesy guys up above) starting at $25, incl shipping. These are black-and-white illos (sometimes with gray marker highlights) on 8.5x11 cardstock, they can be whatever character you’d like, or maybe a little drawing of you, or your friends, or your imaginary friends, or maybe of your enemies and you can use the drawings to taunt those guys. Your choice!
Single figure is $25, $5 for every additional figure, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot and let me know what you’d like. Paypal is happily accepted. All commissions will be finished and in the mail by September 15, 2014.
I’ve got a couple pieces by Calamity Jon and I love them all.
Nobody draws like him and he’s got a wicked sharp brain. It’s well worth your dollars to get your fave hero drawn by him.
Mine was Powerman.
I wish I could afford one! Maybe I should open up for commissions so I could get one from Jon…
Namor by Ted Naifeh.
When I take over Marvel, Ted will get the Sub-Mariner all to himself.
Metal Men by Roger Langridge.
I would fully be on board for a MM comic done by him.
More recent Batman illustrations from Mazzucchelli. Notice how his style has evolved…almost Alex Toth-ish.
Mazzucchelli was Toth-like WAY before 2007; just look at Batman: Year One. By ‘07 he had moved way beyond this stylistically- look at Asterios Polyp. Great stuff just the same, and nice to see he can revert when he wants to.
