Hey everyone,

I've currently had some large unexpected bills to pay so in order to catch up I am going to be doing commissions for anyone who wants one. (I am currently working on commissions that I already owe some of you so that I'm all caught up there, and I will be shipping them to you next week.)

So if you want to help me by ordering one I will be working hard on them everyday. Because of the situation these commissions will have top priority and I will work on it as soo...n as its ordered.

I am also offering show prices on the commissions (which is about 25% less than what I charge working from home) so if any of you have not been able to get one from me at a show, now is your chance. :)

The prices are below. Message me or respond on the post if your interested.

Thanks everyone and Happy Holidays!



Comission Prices
Pencil Head Shot: $75
encil Bust Shot: $100
Pencil Half Body: $150 Color
Head Shot: $125 Color
Bust Shot: $200 Color
Half Body: $300

UPDATE:

Upper Deck finally announced their new limited edition posters, one of whih I drew and colored! Its the elektra one, and you can win one as part of the scavenger hunt!

End Update :star:

Okay guys, here is the announcement for the charity event! donate here www.gofundme.com/findingnei

"Nei Ruffino will be an elusive character this season at San Diego Comic-Con. She is disappearing for a Cause and finding her brings GREAT reward. 

Her Cause you ask? The Hero Initiative. 

The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. www.HeroInitiative.org

Have you ever wanted to seek out your favorite artist for more than just a signing? How about a grand adventure to find her and a reward just as great when you reach your destination?  

The idea is simple, you donate here for The Hero Initiative, you put your email in the notes, and you get an extra clue to help find Nei first. There is no limit to the amount of clues you can purchase. And more clues will be given during Con including picture clues and glimpses of places to search. 

Bonus: You can donate at Con for a special code to give you extra clues in case you hit a wall in the search!

Now I know what you are all thinking... besides quality time with my favorite artist, cut to the chase (!) and tell me what cool swag I can expect for being the first on the scene? 

First Prize:
An Exclusive Autographed work done for 2016 SD Comic Con with Variant. 
An autographed original 
A swag bag full of Specialty Items Personally worked on from Nei's collection.
Quality time with the legend herself!

Second Prize: 
An  Exclusive Autographed work done for 2016 SD Comic Con
A swag bag full of Specialty Items Personally worked on from Nei's collection.

Third Prize:
A swag bag full of Specialty Items Personally worked on from Nei's collection.

Oh and one more thing, some of you will read this and say man what a cool adventure, but sadly I wont be there this year!

You can still get cool swag for donations as well! 

Donation amounts equal cool prizes to be sent to your home! 

Fine Print: $20 initial donation either here or at Con to receive the Scavenger Hunt Items list and a clue. 
If you do not have all items on list you will NOT be able to claim a prize. You must be the person who donated initially. 
Additional clues either at event or on gofundme will be
$5.00 one (1) clue
$15.00 four (4) clues"
