I recently got my first genuine published paying gig as an artist, doing sketch cards for Cryptozoic Entertainment’s second set of Walking Dead Comic Book trading cards.
As part of the compensation for the set, I was provided “Artist Proof” sketch cards that I can illustrate for commissions. The cards are currently for sale on Ebay.
It’s been a great feeling to start drawing again, and getting my stuff out for folks to see.
Commission piece from C2E2 this weekend, by Dave Johnson, one of my favorite artists going these days.
About a year ago, I made a list of the characters I’d like to have drawn as commissions. So now, I just hand the list to the artist and let them choose who they want to draw. I figure if it’s something they’ve actually chosen, hopefully they’ll enjoy it more, and that usually shows.
I love what Dave Johnson did here with Forager, a 2nd tier (and that’s being a little generous) character from the New Gods.
Apologies for the image quality. My scanner isn’t big enough for this piece, so I had to shoot a pic with my iPod touch.
