Rhyl Comic Store signing December 10th

I'll be signing and sketching at the Rhyl comic book store at 12 Wellington Road in Rhyl on December the 10th this year. As always, I'll be sketching for free on the day (and I never charge for signing comics either). I'll be there from midday.

I'll be taking pre convention commissions too as I do before comic conventions I attend. These are more finished than the pieces I do at cons as I have more time to do them! See details below for prices and examples of the different stuff I can draw!

I'll also have a variety of Copic marker tonal sketches for sale on the day as well as a selection of DC, Marvel, IDW, Archie and Dynamite sketchcovers and some original art too from my recent Star Trek covers for IDW!

Contact me at watson904@btinternet.com or via Facebook or Twitter @johnwatsonart if you'd prefer. 

Also, I'll be bringing along a selection of prints for sale at resonable prices! 

PRE-CONVENTION COMMISSION PRICES

Prices are £45 for an A4 sized one and £90 for an A3 sized one (or about 17" by 11" if you're from the USA)

 Get in touch if you'd like a pre-con commission sketch doing before the event, in plenty of time so I have chance to fit it into my schedule/put it on my list. They're basically copic marker, pencil and ink and are  finished/detailed convention sketches. No, they're not Adam Hughes level of quality but that's reflected in the price! They do look quite nice though. I'm quite the bargain  Colour will be £55 for an A4 and £110 for an A3



A4 Poison Ivy



A3 Marvel Girl




A3 Hawkgirl


A3 Poison Ivy


 A4 Wonder Girl




FILM AND TV LIKENESSES

As I hope you can see, I do pretty nifty likenesses. These pieces often take an absolute age to do. For now, the cost is £45 A4 and £90 A3...For multiple characters it'll be more. we can work it out on a level of difficulty I guess. Colour ones (a watercolour wash) are going to be £55 or £110 for an A3. 




Daredevil TV series A4





A4 Chris Hemsworth




A4 Uhura

A4 Hayley Atwell

A4 Biff

A4 Quinto Spock

SKETCH COVERS

Ok, sketch covers. This has escalated, I'm getting asked to do loads of these before cons now. I do have a stock of my own but these are limited so I generally ask that you provide your own comic for me to sketch on. Cost is £45 for a b/w cover. Prices are for regular comic character ones and also for likenesses, examples below.  By the way, I don't mind at all if you get me to do these and then get them slabbed or sell them at a marked up price, as long as you're upfront about that, I have no problem with it at all! It's pretty cool seeing a piece I drew signed by Stan Lee or Michael J Fox!

Occasionally I get handed a very shiny Marvel cover...these are virtually impossible to draw on, just bear that in mind when asking me to draw something! The less shiny, the better. 

I've been asked to do wraparounds recently. These would be twice the price!

COLOUR SKECHCOVERS


These are going to be £55, for now. I've been asked to do wraparounds recently, these are going to be twice the price, see the Daredevil and Punisher cover below!

So, that's the sketch info. Prices are £5 more than last year. I think they're still very reasonable for what you get!

Thought Bubble sketch times

Thought Bubble! I'll be sketching from 1130 until 1300 each day in the Royal Armouries hall.

Drop by to pick up your commissions, say hi and possibly get a sketch done!

I'll have some new pieces for sale also, if time allows! I will be around all weekend as well so you're likely to bump into me if you miss me whilst I'm behind a table!

Thought Bubble 5th/6th November 2016

I'll be attending Thought Bubble on the weekend of the 5th/6th November this year. I'll only be sketching for a short time each day as, like last year, I'll be on the rotating creator table. As a result, if you want to get on my sketchlist then please come by early or you'll be disappointed. I'll be sketching on the weekend for free, as usual.

I'll be taking pre convention commissions as I did last year. See details below for prices and examples of the different stuff I do! I'm fast running out of space on my commission list!

I'll also have a variety of Copic marker tonal sketches for sale at the con as well as a selection of DC, Marvel, IDW, Archie and Dynamite sketchcovers and some original art too! I'll try and post pics of some of the pieces I have for sale nearer the time (and when I've had chance to draw them!)

Contact me at watson904@btinternet.com or via twitter @johnwatsonart or on Facebook to arrange a commisssion.

PRE-CONVENTION COMMISSION PRICES

Prices are £45 for an A4 sized one and £90 for an A3 sized one (or about 17" by 11" if you're from the USA)

 Get in touch if you'd like a pre-con commission sketch doing before the convention begins, in plenty of time so I have time to fit it into my schedule/put it on my list. They're basically copic marker, pencil and ink and are  finished/detailed convention sketches. No, they're not Adam Hughes level of quality but that's reflected in the price! They do look quite nice though. As pre convention commission prices in general have seemingly gone crazy (have you seen some of the prices? And by people who've never worked in comics and can barely draw too...I won't get into that now but it irks) I'm quite the bargain  Colour will be £55 for an A4 and £110 for an A3

Nor Con 6 cancelled.

Hi. Very sorry about this but I can't make it to Nor Con 6 on the 8th September. Due to my current workload I just can't do it. On that note, for all those people waiting on art...I'm on it! Please contact me if you need anything by a specific date.

More soon!

Nor-Con 6, 8th October



I'll be a guest at Nor-Con 6 on the 8th October. I'll be sketching all day, these are free but aren't as finished as the pieces that I do beforehand as commissions or to sell! Come by early to get on my list as it is limited.

For pre-convention sketches, continue reading!


All the pre con commissions are done in pencil, ink and Copic marker. I can do something different, say pencils only, or linework, just let me know. I'll also be doing colour pieces again, basically they're copic marker pieces with watercolour added. They're a lot more finished than what I can accomplish on the day of the con and they're pretty cheap!
Here are some examples:


A4 B/W. These are £45.











A4 sketchcovers, these would be £45. If you want to supply your own comic then send it quickly! I do have a small stock of titles...there'd be a small charge if you want me to supply the cover. These are pretty popular at the moment!














 
A4 Colour. These are £55



A3 B/W. These are £90




These tend to be more full figure than the A4 ones as they're twice the size!

A3 Colour. These are £110





I don't mind doing a couple of figures on the A3 colour pieces, as long as it doesn't get crazy with detail.

That's all the info you'll need. Look forard to meeting you on the day!
