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 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! 


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

A3 Marvel Girl

A3 Hawkgirl

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.

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!

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!
