COMMISSIONS

I work with "traditional" media. That means when I create art there is a physical canvas, sculpture or piece of paper with me all over it.

In answer to a number of recent inquiries here is my business pitch.

My idea of a "request" is a commission to create art for money (in US Dollars). Please do not ask me to draw something unless you are willing to pay for it up front.

My standard comic convention rates are as follows:

$10.00 monochrome sketch card
$15.00 color sketch card
$20.00 for 8.5 X 11 sketch
$35.00 for a "simple" 8.5 X 11 1 character color work

(all plus postage)

More ellaborate commissions are negotiated on a per case basis.

double @ price if you want "mature" content i.e. nudity
I do not do hard core or kinky stuff.

Journal History

I don't think that the last word on the characterization of Maleficent has been written. I finally made the time to see Disney's new live action film "Maleficent". It falls into the category of the recent wave of deconstructionist fairy tales such as "Hansel and Gretel" or the TV series "Once upon a Time".

I have always said that Maleficent was too good to be just another Disney character. It is as if a creation out of "The Lord of the Rings" or the "Narnia" novels had been teleported into a Disney cartoon. She was just too powerful, too richly textured and just too cool to be in a Disney movie. She stands head and shoulders above such amateurs as Lady Tremaine  or such incompetents as Captain Hook. I have for years harbored a desire to write my own back story for Maleficent. My "Malora" paintings represent my interest in this subject. The revision of Maleficent seen in her own eponymous movie is not exactly what I had in mind, but it is so close that I will probably never write that fanfic I had in mind. One major similarity between this film and my alternate story is her motivation. The 1959 Disney animated feature "Sleeping Beauty" never explicitly explained WHY Maleficent was motivated to curse King Stephan's bloodline. I independently concluded that it had to have been an affair of the heart. Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned. I figured that Stephan must have jilted Maleficent when they were younger.

Spoiler alert: I would never have conceived of the entire wing subplot.

The "Maleficent" movie is entirely satisfactory as entertainment, as a visual experience and as an homage to its source material. My unfinished alternate history seems redundant at this point.

Seen your art at the Deviant-Meet, I loved it and it is quite inspiring! I hope to see most of your work soon.
I sold some art and was thinking of buying your art but I was too late and had to go. DX

Sweet! Also, from the inspiration I got from your card art and everything else at the meet, I decided to pull out some blank cards I had the day after the meet and try some card art on my own, I even used white gel pen to give my card art attempt some lighting.
