Now for something completely different. Cartoonist Jay Fosgitt (of Dead Duck fame) was doing $10 sketches on dA and I couldn't resist. I present my favorite OC, Stilt-Girl! :-D

I have a Brian Hurtt commission coming by the end of the month. I can't wait to see it. I just got my federal income tax check back and am thinking about getting another commission done by someone else. I just need to find someone who is available online.

The Calgary Expo just ended today and I got an Adam Hughes sketch.

He wasn't taking orders or doing anything but profile sketches... but I still like it!

Really awesome thread. I have only bought art prints in the past, but this is a lot cooler. How do you go about requesting stuff like this? Do you just ask the artist to draw you something while you are at a comic-con?

I haven't got any of my commissions at a con. All of mine have been through online requests. Of course if you can get to a con you will have much more options available to you.

Ok, good to know. Phoenix Comicon is next month so maybe I can get a few commissions while I am there.

You better get your wallet ready. If I can find myself a full time job by September, I might attend the Granite State Comicon.

At conventions, some artists will toss off a quicky head sketch if you ask nicely. I generally recommend having a small sketch book on hand. Backboards work as well but that seems to be going by the wayside as people have posted their stuff for sale on ebay right after they get it.

Don't limit yourself to artists, I've actually gotten sketches from Mark Waid, Jeff Parker and Jonathan Hickman

Some artists that don't do quickies have lists that you can sign up for when you get there. The popular artists fill up almost immediately.

I generally try and reach out to certain artists ahead of time via email if I can track it down. I've been told Twitter is a useful tool as well. A friend of mine worked with JK Woodward via Twitter.

Depending on the complexity, size, etc, there will be generally be extra time or money involved. If you go the email route, be patient, these artists do have a day job doing their own comics.

Which reminds me I need post my haul from the Comicazi and Larry's Comic "not the Boston Comicons"

I picked up a couple of pieces at a small show in NYC a few weeks back.
