A status update on commissions, convention travel, and a few other things that crop up in many emails that come my way.
COMMISSIONS... Still not taking requests. It's still very rare for me to find time to work on sketches, and when I do, I'm still opting for the character I want to draw. Per usual, once I have a handful completed, I'll post them on eBay accompanied by an announcement here on the site and a mention on Twitter as well.
CONVENTION TRAVEL... No change there either. For many reasons, in recent years it just hasn't been convenient for me to plan days off well in advance. I'm not saying never, and if I do plan something I'll give some notice here and on Twitter.
CGC COLLECTORS... About once a year I sign a limited number of books and sketch on a limited number of variant covers. One of the CGC guys coordinates all of that and the list fills up quickly. It's something I haven't been bothering to announce, but for some of you who don't follow the CGC forums, I should start posting a notice and a link on the site when that time rolls around in case that's something you want to pursue.
SENDING BOOKS FOR SIGNATURES... I've tried to sign books by mail when possible since I'm not attending conventions. It was getting to a point where folks were just sending stuff without asking and then it would invariably take up space on my shelves for a while if I was fighting a deadline. I tried to catch up with that as best I could before leaving Florida. If you've sent anything in recent months to my old address, it may not reach me.
Going forward, I suppose I should adopt a policy of requesting a couple bucks per signature if I'm going to take time out here to sign. I would also ask for an email request before just sending books or trading cards. And best that you don't ask for "quick" free sketches since there's nothing really quick about them.
