NICE 7/8 September 2019

I'm now taking commission requests for NICE 2019, which takes place on 7/8 September this year. I'll be at the con all weekend sketching and signing. I'll probably be sketching on the Saturday night after the con too. 
As always, I'll be sketching for free at the convention. These won't be as finished as the commissions I do but they look pretty good.
I'll also have a folder of pieces to sell, sketchcovers, watercolours, the usual stuff. 

For those interested in a commission for the con, here are the details!


These are still £50 for a b/w Copic sketch like the examples below, a single figure bust, a close up etc, even a single full figure or basic background. For a wrap that'd be £100. Colour (Copics and ink with watercolour wash) will be £60, £120 for a wrap. For anything like multiple figures, detailed background, complicated compositions etc then it'll be on a per job basis. We're not talking hundreds of pounds or anything, but they will be more money than the base price!

Newmar and West, £70

Tom Holland Spider-Man, watercolour, £60

West Batman, £50. I still have this one for sale, sometimes you just can't get rid of a bomb.

Newmar Catwoman, £50

West Batman, £50

Boba Fett, watercolour over Copics, £60

Billy Dee Williams, Lando, £50

Another Adam West Batman, £50

Spidey v Hobgoblin, watercolour, £70

Watercolour over Copics, £60

Gustin Flash, watercolour over Copics, £60

Frank Gorshin, Riddler, £50

Note:The quality of blank variant titles varies greatly depending on the publisher. For example, DC generally have the best surface to draw on, it's a decent surface. Except Adventures of Supergirl which has a surface like 1970's school toilet paper and has my vote as the worst blank variant ever made. 

Marvel tend to be hit and miss, some are fine, some are ink, Copic, paint and even pencil repellent. The most recent ones are the best but they do have a tendency to soak up the colour from paint. Also, be mindful that some Marvel blanks have a massive logo plastered across them that inhibits greatly where they can be drawn on. Why? No idea, it's inane. Consider that when considering those blanks for commissions!

Dynamite...every tool I use skates across the almost plastic surface and coagulates in a pool of frustration. So, not all art options that I do will be available for every blank variant. We can always talk about it beforehand. 

I can also do the above style of detailed sketches on regular paper, either A4 £50 (£60 for colour)or A3 £100 (£120 for colour), if you don't want them on blank variant covers. Again, it's a similar situation regarding detailed backgrounds and multiple figures. They'll be priced on a per job basis. 
One thing I no longer offer, on any surface, is likenesses of people who aren't celebrities, by that I mean family members, friends etc. It's just a load of hassle. Sorry.

Emma Frost, Copics with watercolour that I did for the con last year. A3, £120

Tom Wilson as Biff Tannen, A4 £50

Cover recreations on blanks start at £70. They're pretty tricky to do although they do look nice!


 These aren't to be confused with the Copic pieces with a colour wash, these are true watercolours, no ink or marker involved. There are a few of them amongst the sketchcovers above.

Prices start at £200 for a watercolour piece A3 in size. That'd be with a fully rendered figure, or two if it's simple, with a basic background. For a more detailed background, for example with rendered buildings, it'd be more money, say £250. For multiple figures, a battle, then it'd go up in price again. See examples below with listed prices for an idea of the different prices.

Rita Farr of the Doom Patrol as the 50ft Woman. A3 watercolour, £250

Universo v The Legion, A3 watercolour, £275

Recreation of DareDevil #8 cover, £200

Deathbird, A3 watercolour, £200

Batman v Poison Ivy, A3 watercolour, £200

Hawkman #19 recreation, A3 watercolour, £200

Black Canary on Triumph bike, A3 watercolour, £200

Poison Ivy v Batman, A3 watercolour, £200

Wolverine bust, A4 watercolour, £60

Green Arrow #1 recreation with Willa Holland as Speedy, A5, £50

Elektra, A4 watercolour, £60

Wolverine #1 recreation with Hugh Jackman, A4 watercolour, £60

Poison Ivy v Batman. Oversized, A2 watercolour. A2 watercolours start at £450.


Cover recreations are £200 for linework, £275 for tonal pieces. 

Tonal piece, £275

Tonal piece, £275

 I also do cover style pieces that aren't based on existing covers but that can be drawn in the style of other artist's work. Same price as the recreations.

I also offer digital colours on commissions (you'd get an A3 sized print along with the original) the colouring costs an extra £80

I paint in oil on canvas board. I can work to specific size requirements but the usual size is approx 18" by 13". I used to paint on stretched canvas but various postal services seem to enjoy bending the art and trying their best to damage it. 

Below are a some examples. I'll talk about pricing underneath each image! I price each piece according to the size and subject matter. It's easier that way!

This was $2000/£1500. 18" by 13", lots of detail. Spidey in oils, background in acrylic.

Lots of figures, 18 by 13, oil. This would be about $2000/£1500

An older piece, but useful for price comparison. This would be about £1000

Oversized oil. 24" in height. This would be $2750/£2000

Another oversized oil, 24" in height. This also would be $2750/£2000

Around £1250, more detail than the Batman v Scarecrow 

Lots of detail, multiple figures, $2000/£1500
