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!

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…

Rugby logo

December 16, 2008

Finished a vector-based illustration for my son’s former rugby team.

Adobe Illustrator can be a bit maddening, but it’s great for logo work like this.  The copy shown is a low-res jpeg version.
