Comic Con 2013 and the future of this blog.

Hey Gang,
I know it's been a while since I've posted on this blog. I will probably be shutting it down soon. Most all my new art will be posted on my tumblr page which I update several times a week.
In the meantime, here is what I my partner in art, Amy Mebberson and I have coming up for Comic Con in San Diego. We will also be appearing at the D23 Expo from August 9-11 with similar goodies. Check the Tumblr page for further details as that show approaches.

PLEASE NOTE- We are no longer in Artist's Alley. We are at the exact opposite end of the show floor next to the Video Game area.Our table number is F-07. See above map for reference
Our awesome exclusive official Disney prints, ONLY available from our table F07. Purchase of these prints comes with a free sketch. You can choose from our selection or request your own custom sketch.
New prints  only available from Acme Archives’ booth (5629) - ‘Singalong’(first official Pocket Princess print) and ‘Star Wars Storybook’ prints. Buy any of these from Acme, bring them around to our table and we’ll be delighted to sign them for you. Please note, the Acme booth prints do NOT come with a free sketch.
All of the prints above (except our table prints) will be available from Acme Archives website after the con, supplies permitting.
James will have Darkwing Duck trades and  Amy will have a selection of her My Little Pony variant covers. Our individual 2012-13 sketchbooks will also be available for $15.
We will be taking our usual commission lists (refreshed every day), however please note we can no longer take commissions for Disney characters (or anything owned by Disney: Star Wars, Pixar, Muppets..)
HOWEVER, an original sketch of your fave Disney character IS available with purchase of one of our table prints(see above). Mash-ups are welcome. Please come early to get on the list.
If you’re note sure, please just ask, we’re happy to take any enquiries.
Thursday: We will each make an appearance at Acme’s booth doing a bit of custom arting and signing prints. Acme will have a TON of our other work available for sale, so come on by!
I will be at Acme’s booth from 1-2pm Thursday painting a one of a kind piece for sale later in the weekend.
You also MUST get to the Disney Afternoon Anniversary panel on Sunday at 2pm Room 7A. Moderated by our partner-in-shenanigi Aaron Sparrow, a sterling lineup of Disney Afternoon alumni (including DWD creator Tad Stones and voice icon Rob Paulsen) will spin yarns and show the world how the love for Disney Afternoon endures! Come to this one and you MIGHT see the unveiling of special new content for Disney Afternoon in the months ahead.

NYCC commission pre-oreders are open!

So here’s the deal- work (the real stuff I do) has exploded and given me less opportunity to prepare for New York Comic Con. That means I’m opening up now for a VERY limited amount of commission slots.

This time around I’ll only be taking COLOR 9”x12”commissions starting at $60 per character. I don’t travel with my full set of color markers (I gotta swim there from Hawaii fer chrissakes) so this will be the only way to get full color art. You can email me here with your requests.
Amy Mebberson and I will be taking fresh commission lists everyday of the show. We usually fill up by noon so get there early. If you want your piece done only in grey markers, I will take your orders at the con.
Remember this is for pick-up at NYCC only. I’m afraid I can’t take any mailing orders at this time. You can pick up your work at Artist Alley table C16. Don’t forget I will also have my first sketchbook debuting at the show.
I look forward to seeing everyone in NYC. Save me a slice of Original Famous Ray's. Or is it Ray's Original Famous?

Mailing commissions are open!

*Update- Commissions are now closed
 I found myself with a bit of post SDCC time so I am open for a very limited number of commission slots for mailing. If you can’t make it to one of the conventions I attend, this is your best opportunity to get an original piece of your choosing.
The options are the same. All work is done on 9”x12” bristol board. Grey marker pieces start at $50 per character and full color pieces start at $60. Prices go up for more than one character, backgrounds, props, etc. All orders will include $7 for shipping and handling.
Unfortunately on this round I will not be taking any foreign orders. I’ve had some problems with the overseas commissions arriving in one piece. Until I can figure out a better shipping method I’m going to hold off on sending art internationally.
And again, I won’t be drawing anything x-rated or overly violent. (I really work on these characters and I don’t wanna do anything to disparage them). I also won’t be doing any portraits/caricatures. Believe me, there are much better artists to capture a likeness than me.
Otherwise, go nuts. I love a good mashup challenge. Check this blog and my tumblr for ideas and email me here with your requests
If you are attending either Comikaze in LA or New York Comic Con, I will be open for pre-orders in September. I can deliver your commissions in person and save you the cost of shipping. Check back for details.

San Diego Comic Con commission pre-orders are open!

It’s nearly time for the gaping maw of Comic Con to consume us and Amy Mebberson and I are taking commission orders for pickup in San Diego. 
Prices are as such…
$20 for head shots. 5”x7” bristol cards with a head and shoulders shot of your favorite character done in grey markers.
$40 starting for character full body art on 9”x12” bristol with grey markers. Additional characters, props and setting go up from there.
$60 and up for full color versions of the 9”x12” art. Color is available for pre-commissions only.
Amy and I always fill up early in the day for Comic Con so this is you best way to guarantee your art and pick it up at your leisure (Comic Con…? Leisure…?). Pre-commissions also allow us to do work away from the madness of the show floor and give your piece it’s full attention.
Email me here with your questions and requests. Samples of con commissions can be found on my Tumblr page. Payments can be made via Paypal. I look forward to seeing you all in San DIego. 
Because of time constraints I will not be taking mailing commissions until after the con. Thanks for your patience
