2013 C2E2 Pre-Convention Commissions

March 28, 2013

I will be attending the 2013 C2E2, which will be held in Chicago April 26-28 (http://www.c2e2.com/Home/). As I did last year, I’m taking a limited amount of pre-convention sketches. All drawings will be on 2-ply bristol–either in ink or pencil. Prices are as follows:

Detailed head/bust: $60

Full-figure, minimal background: $125

Two figures: $250

If you have a special request, we can negotiate a price.

To get on the list, you can email me at petergkrause@yahoo.com. Advance payment is required via Paypal.

Our online comic site, Thrillbent.com, will have space at the show. I’ll also be at the Hero Initiative table on Friday from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm. You can catch me at one of those two places, or we can make arrangements so I can give you your sketch. Please only order a sketch if you are planning on attending C2E2.

Thanks, and see you at the show!


C2E2! This next weekend in Chicago–sketch prices

April 9, 2012

Just a quick note to say that I’ll be at C2E2 this weekend, April 13-15 2012. I’ll be at Artists’ Alley location D21. My co-conspirator in our #projectsecret–Mark Waid–promises to be there as well. Attend our Friday night panel (7:45 p.m.–8:45 p.m.) where we announce the details and show exclusive artwork (artwork colored by our incredible partner, Nolan Woodard).

I will be doing some sketching. All sketches will be on 9×12 paper–pencil or inks. Prices as follows:

One character–$125
Two characters–$250
Head/bust drawing–$60.

If you want to get on the “pre-convention” list and assure yourself a drawing, you can email me at petergkrause@yahoo.com and reserve a drawing.

On Saturday, April 14, all money I take in for onsite sketching will be donated to the Hero Initiative. The Hero Initiative helps out with comic professionals that are in need. It’s a worthy cause.

See you in Chicago!


Sketch of the Day–Batman/Solomon Grundy

December 20, 2011

Already posted this on twitter. Taking some suggestions from @divaLea–darkened rock in front. Also, thinned out Grundy’s face a bit.
Drawn on a Cintiq with Photoshop.

I’ve already posted this on twitter, but here it is for the blog.


Sketch of the Day 11/3/11–Wonder Woman!

November 3, 2011

Here’s a quick drawing of Wonder Woman. I really should draw her more often.

Back at it!

November 3, 2011

Like so many of us who started blogs, I have let it fall to the wayside. I hope to be back on a semi-regular basis–time allowing.

In the meantime, I’ll post some of the illustrations that I’ve included on my twitter site ( you can follow me at @petergkrause).



Heroes Con 2010–Sketch prices

June 1, 2010

For the first time in years, I’ll be attending an out-of-town comic convention when I travel to Charlotte, N.C. this weekend. HeroesCon will run from Friday, June 4 to Sunday, June 6.

I will be drawing a LIMITED amount of sketches. There are many people I have not seen in years, and I like to mingle a bit. I also want to attend some of the panels. So, I will not be drawing during the whole convention.

If you’d like a drawing from me, the cost will be $60 for a single character–$80 for two characters. The drawings will be 9″ x 12″, cash only. The drawings will be either tight pencils or marker–your choice. I will take orders for as many as I can finish for the day. There will be a new list on each day of the convention, so catch me early if you’d like a drawing. The best place to find me will be at the BOOM! Studios booths (booths #513 and 514).

There is one other option to obtain a drawing, and it’s a bit cheaper as well. On Friday, June 4 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., I will be sketching at the Hero Initiative booths (booths 400-B and 400-C). The Hero Initiative is a wonderful charity that grants aid to comic creators that have fallen on hard times. I will be drawing head shots only, but the cost will be a mere $20. All proceeds go to the Hero Initiative.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone. Please stop by and say hello!

Sketch of the Day, 3/9/10–Scott Pilgrim

March 9, 2010

One of the most enjoyable series of graphic novels I’ve read is Bryan Lee O’Malley’s “Scott Pilgrim”. Scott is an early-twenties slacker, undergoing an unusual travail to win the heart of the lovely Ramona. There are five GNs out now, with a sixth on the way. There will also be a movie starring Michael Cera.

O’Malley draws the books in a broad, manga-influenced style. Here’s my interpretation of the hero.


Blog is back! Sketch of the day 3/5/10–Kid Flash

March 5, 2010

Back after a long absence.

There’s a break in my comic book schedule, so more drawings and ramblings are forthcoming.

Thanks to twitter user @ryanoneil for today’s subject. It’s Wally, in his Kid Flash outfit. Yes, he does have Bart’s hairstyle–but I think if Nick Cardy and Bob Haney were doing the Teen Titans today, this is how Wally might look.

If you haven’t checked out the original Teen Titans–before Marv and George did their marvelous work with the characters–it’s well worth the effort. Cardy’s inks are luscious, and Haney’s stories are outrageous! All part of the fun…
