Hey Portland!

I’m really excited to be tabling at Rose City Comic Con on September 19-20. I’ll be there at Table W5 at the Oregon Convention Center, the flat building with the two shiny glass towers poking out of it close to the Moda Center.  I will have art prints, t-shirts, and magnets available to sell as well as commissions.

Speaking of which, I’m opening up pre-commission slots for Rose City Comic Con! Instead of signing up for a commission at the con and waiting to get it, you can order one right now and pick it up when you visit my table without waiting in line.  I will be offering the following single-character pre-commissions for RCCC:

  • OPTION 1 (available for pre-commission only, order by Tuesday, 9/15): 11×17 color giclee print on matte paper – starting at $80 USD, additional characters – starting at $20 USD each.
  • OPTION 2: 9×12 BW sumi ink original with wash on watercolor paper – starting at $45 USD, additional characters – starting at $10 USD each.
  • OPTION 3: 5×7 BW sumi ink original with wash on watercolor paper – starting at $30 CAD, additional characters – starting at $5 USD each.

Option 2 and 3 will be made available at RCCC. If you would like a commission done, please email me at “punchingpandasart” on Gmail, and provide the following information:

  • First and last name
  • Description of the commission. PLEASE refer to my guidelines for commissions. I need to approve of the commissions before I start them.
  • What day you plan on picking up the commission (Friday 9/19, Saturday 9/20).

Once I have the information, I will provide you with my Paypal info. I will only work on your commission once I receive payment through PayPal.

Here are a few samples of my digital commissions that I did for ECCC and Fan Expo Vancouver earlier in the year.[/vc_column_text]

And here are some samples of my ink commissioned works for Fan Expo Canada this last weekend.

I’m really excited to be at this con, and I might be bring something extra special for you Portland folks. Stay classy, I’ll see you soon!

Cheers,

Just finished up a batch of commissions for my good friend Kevin.  He’s a big fan of the Super Pandas, so I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them. Cheers!

Here are a couple sketches I made during my weekend trip to Las Vegas, or more like during my flight back home from Vegas. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my sketchbook with me when I visited Red Rocks Canyon. Next time, next time…

I recently finished a commission for a client who wanted to include a pig as a companion for one of my pandas.  The three ink drawings revolved around their interests and quirks, namely the wife’s profession as a pediatrician, and the husband’s interest in Reddit.  The last drawing relates to a Hawaii vacation which the client and his wife are probably on right now.  Anyways, hope that’s enough to explain the drawings, but enjoy them anyways.

The rough concepts that I presented to the client.

And that’s a wrap for my first Inktober!  It was a lot of fun, and I definitely learned a ton that I’ll be incorporating in my future work.  Here’s the process video for the Professor Panda, enjoy!
