Commissions and New Prices

Creature From The Black Lagoon
Let's all admit it...I charge too little for my work. I know it, you know it, we all know it.

I have to raise my prices (after like 3 or 4 years??) because I put a lot of effort, time and care into my work. I think that shows. Also, and more importantly: material costs. People like to get color work, and that's fine, but I use high quality color inks and watercolors and they run out and I have to keep replenishing my supply. I would also like to start buying heavier water media paper if I can make some more money. I think my art buyers want me to do good work and hopefully they will meet me there with a little more compensation.

I'm raising the base price for commissions by an almost-harmless $10. That's it. It will help. Additionally, cost for extra characters and special background requests are raised $10 for large paper only.  Lastly, International shipping is raised by $1. I'm sorry about that, International shipping is expensive.

Any commission requests made January 30th and beyond reflect the new prices. If you're on my commission list already, you can have the old prices but shipping is still raised.

Thank you for your support and I hope you're happy with your art commissions.

Prices:
9X12 inch paper, gray: $80
9X12 inch paper, color: $90 
shipping extra: $8 USA; $14 Canada;  $19 International
 
11X17 inch paper, gray: $130
11X17 inch paper, color: $150
shipping extra: $9 USA; $16 Canada;  $23 International

Price is for one character. Extra character is $20 extra small paper / $50 extra for large paper.
Special background art requests are $20 extra small paper/ $50 extra for large paper.
 
I also have 11X14 and 12X18 inch paper if you prefer.

COMMISSIONS Final post of 2018!

Princess Mononoke
Rules:
If you want to commission a drawing, email me at funrama@gmail.com. The wait is long, the list is long. I take as long as I need. I don't charge upfront. I will ask you to pay when I begin the drawing.

Advice: 
I think people see my low prices and elect to pile a lot of characters in their request. I advise against that. Piling tons of characters in a drawing doesn't insure it will be a better piece and it means It will take forever to get it done. One character is way easier. Small paper is way easier. No color is way easier. I'm happy to do color, large paper and 2 characters but please think about your request carefully first. Large, color, and multiple characters is more work and more time. Just so you know.

Time:
I suppose people get a little alarmed when they request a commission and get an email from me 10 months later requesting payment. If you commission, then you're in for the long haul, and agree to my rules. It's a wait. I'm sorry the wait is long, but that's the way it is. I do my best for everyone.

Thank You:
Thank you!

Prices:
9X12 inch paper, gray: $70
9X12 inch paper, color: $80

11X17 inch paper, color: $140

STRONGHOLD with Phil Hester and Aftershock Comics coming in 2019


I'm proud to announce STRONGHOLD, my new series with writer Phil Hester at AfterShock Comics Dee Cunniffe is coloring. Stronghold #1 is set to go on sale on February 20, 2019. I think you're going to love it. Be sure to preorder from your shop if you want this book.

Here is some info on the book as well as a preview of the interior pages by me and variant cover.

“Stronghold” is about a college student and delivery driver named Claire who has fallen in love with a sad sack insurance adjuster on her delivery route named Michael Grey. Claire also happens to belong to a centuries-old secret society called The Stronghold who believes this insurance adjuster is actually an immortal, amnesiac elder god whose awakening would ignite a cosmos-wide Armageddon.

 Like all young people, Claire feels restless in her strict faith, but when she tests it by revealing herself to Grey, the results threaten to destroy not only her order, but the world. On the run from The Stronghold, alien enemies, and Grey’s own broken, haunting memories, they both realize that for their love to be born, Earth must die.

A story that begins as a lively, adventurous romance spins into a deeper, darker science fiction tale of existential terror and ultimate sacrifice. It’s very much in the flavor of past work of mine like “The Coffin” and “Deep Sleeper” (both with Mike Huddleston). If that’s not enough to hook you, come for Ryan Kelly’s amazing artwork, which alone is worth the cover price. He’s really leveled up on this one. As an artist myself, I’m in awe.
