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 have just finished guzzling all 24 episodes of Guillermo Del Toro's "Trollhunters" animated series on Netflix. It is produced by DreamWorks which brought the "How to Train Your Dragon" books to life. I had previously rated HTTYD as the best animated show on television, but on technical points at least Trollhunters has edged it out of the top spot. The Dragon series started as a feature film which was state of the CGI art  when it premiered. Some corollary of Moore's Law is in effect. The quality of CG cartoons doubles every few years. A decade is an eternity in this business. The first Dragons TV series was flat and choppy compared to its feature film debut. The show has only gotten better with succeeding seasons. After the second feature it had to up its game.

Trollhunters erupts fully formed like Athena from the brow of Zeus. It is in a high definition and high frame rate format. The visuals are incredibly good. The story is par with similar premises in anime and Western animation. Joseph Campbell could have summarized the familiar thematic elements of legend and myth in a few sentences. A human youth takes on great power and responsibility like Theseus, Luke Skywalker and Peter Parker. It is also a retelling of the Arthurian saga replete with drawing swords from stones. Many of the teenager's school mates fall into well worn stereotypes, the awkward sidekick, the girl next door, the schoolyard bully etc.. I see parallels with Frodo and Samwise or Wart and Sir Kay. The creators of the show are well aware of all of this. It does not mean that the shop worn formulas don't work. Everything old is new again to young eyes.

The cast is superb. Tragically the eponymous character was voiced by the late Anton Yelchen. There is some consolation in the fact that he will remembered for his contribution to this premium franchise as well as to the "Star Trek" reboot. Kelsey Grammer provides the voice for Blinky whose role as mentor stands out among the cast of trolls. These creatures vary in appearance from that of minotaurs to talking tiki idols. There are other voice actors in this production who are A-list talents. There are also many in-jokes peppered throughout the series for the delight of fantasy fans. The fact that trolls find cats to be tasty snacks is an off hand nod to "Hell Boy". Indeed Trollhunters could very easily share the same universe as Hell Boy. There are running sight gags and references that make this show as worth rewatching as was "Gravity Falls".
