The last sentence of that article makes me REALLY happy. Did I help start something?
Stop-motion movie-maker, commercial artist, and sort-of-pro comic artist. Occasionally doing various covers for IDW's GODZILLA comics and IRIS WILDTHYME's various series from Obverse Books and Big Finish Productions. |
For those wondering- yes, I do some commissions from time to time- when the money and subject matter is right. I'm not one of those artists who'll draw Power Girl high-kicking Lady Death for X amount of $ (well, unless it's a VERY big X), but when it's a cool project- absolutely! I usually don't do it in a way where someone just throws an idea at me and I draw it exactly- I usually prefer to "cook up" an idea between me and the commissioner (otherwise, it's too much like "real" work). I'm willing to hear anything out, though!
Price-wise, it's all over the place. It all depends on size, complexity, effort, etc. Just keep in mind, I don't take on anything for less than $60, as it's just not worth it on a time/ money basis.
I don't do fanzines or other non-paying gigs. Sorry.
