I was just looking up his art and found another page from the same book. If anyone wants to get me an early birthday present.

The Amazing Spider-Man #327 Page 16.
Art - Erik Larsen (signed) & Al Gordon (signed).
This is actually one of my most favorite comic items that I own. My favorite character is Spider-Man and I was a big fan of Erik Larsen's run on the series. All that being said, what can be better than Spidey literally jumping off the page like this.

Unfortunately, I only have one more contribution. Two pages, but they go together. The Michael Turner pieces I had mentioned before.
I say unfortunately because I wish I had more art and thus I could share it.

I like this thread because the bullshit that seems to make it's way into other threads, and then ruin them, never seems to find it's way here. *Knock on wood*

Let's see those Turner pieces!

First thing's first. I apologize for the poor quality of the picture. It's in a frame and I couldn't get a good picture without a lot of reflection without taking it off the wall and I didn't feel like it.

Witchblade #4 Page 14 (1999)
Art - Michael Turner (signed) & D Tron
Around the time Aspen Comics was coming about, Michael Turner did a coast to coast signing tour. He was in Houston at a LCS so I sent to see him. He was signing and doing sketches. There were about three portfolios full of art pages he was selling. While he was talking to fans, he had his business partner there helping out. People were asking about pages and they would ask how much. Each one had a price written in the corner. He would say, "It's marked X but we'll take Y." They were taking $25-50 of each page. I went through all the portfolios and excluding title and splash pages that were way out of my price range, I decided that this was the one I absolutely had to have. I asked how much and his partner looked and said, "Oh. Hey Mike. He wants THAT one." Of course. Of all the pieces there, I had to pick "THAT one". Turner says, "I have X on it and that's what I have to take for it. That one is really sentimental to me." If I wasn't interested before, I was now. I asked why and he said, "It was the last time I ever drew Sara taking off the Witchblade. It was something that meant a lot to me." I told him that I would give it the best home possible. I had it framed and it's been on the wall of two different homes for the past 17-18 years. Here's the finished product if you're not familiar with it. To me, it doesn't need all the word balloons. The art tells the story all by itself and that's what I love about it. It's not a big action scene or a sexy scene. It's just good art.

Witchblade #3 Page 4 (1999)
Art - Michael Turner (signed) & D Tron

Fast forward about a year and I'm browsing Ebay. I run across another Turner Witchblade page. At an absolute steal. I knew exactly what page it was because I loved that top image. So I got it home and looked at it and realized that I was so excited about getting it that I didn't really realize what I had and missed out what should have been the biggest thing to me. This page was from the previous issue of the one I had. I reread the book and realized that this was the next to last time that Sara took off the Witchblade.
I met Turner again at a convention (before I had this page) and I told him I was the one who bought that page. I just wanted to make sure he didn't have any regrets getting rid of it. He said if he had regrets on selling his art he would never get rid of anything. Yeah, some things are a lot more important to him than others, but he has to move on to the next thing or he wouldn't expand. He was by far one of the nicest people I have ever met. Not just in the business, but period. RIP Michael Turner

@ThorneArt I joined his Facebook group a while back but he's been upping things a lot recently. Going to make me broke!

edit: by upping things, I mean doing charity auctions, selling some of his original pages, etc. I wasn't even added to his group for maybe a year and then it was pretty quiet for a while but he's been much more active the past few months.

Looking to have my Thor vol.6 #1 blank commissioned by someone? Any thoughts on who would be willing to do this? Also best way to get ahold of them. Never tried any kind of submission like this.

I have had the best results with commissioning artwork through Instagram. There's a TOOOOOOOOON of artists that have commission lists open, that would be able to do what you're asking.

A few of my favorites (with their IG handles)
-Troy Dongarra / toonsbytroy - loose, Keith Giffen style (Lobo, Trencher)
-Armando Ramirez / armandoramirez_art - dark, Jai Lee/Mark Texiera style
-Tim Shinn / timshinn73 - classic SA style artwork
-Joey Lee Cabral / joeyleecabral - watercolor artist

I've commissioned numerous pieces from the first three, and am in talks with the last one.

LMAO. No. I was just sharing my old stuff since I was new to the board and the thread. I have all this stuff sitting here with only me to look at it and art is supposed to be shared and seen by all.

I suggest Ron Frenz. You can reach him through Catskill Comics- Just click on their email link. Sal Buscema also does commissions through Catskill. It looks like they both charge an additional $25 on top of their regular prices to do it on a blank cover. I assume because it's a pain in the ass lol.

Haven’t thought of a budget really, never even thought to look into? Not wanting to pay a ton, really dependent on the artist (obviously). Any thoughts on what I should expect?

It varies quite a bit.

Many of the ones I've mentioned have a lot of different options under the $100 mark. Some of the more high-demand artists right now have pricing that starts at $200 and goes up.

Do you know what you'd like? That'll help considerably, as just getting a b&w headshot is going to be different than getting a full color, full figure sketch.

Just got these back. I really love Troy’s style. The Silver Surfer is just classic.

The Batman one was an idea I had. I asked him to draw Alfred in that Kermit the Frog meme, “But that’s none of my business” thing. He killed it.

My two latest commissions. These were done by Guiu Vilanova who was one of the interior artists on the Punisher comics when he had the War Machine armor. In the comics he drew Frank to look like Jon Bernthal and asked me if I wanted him to do that in the commission. I said sure! Super nice guy, affordable, and easy to deal with.

I won this in a ComicLink auction last night. Early Jae Lee Punisher pencil sketch. I can't believe how low it went for. I don't think it's signed but I confirmed it with him on Instagram that he did in fact draw it. If cons ever start back up and I see him at one I'll ask him to sign it.

That was a strong Comic Link focus auction. Some of the art ended at price points that were unexpected.

Based on what Lee charges now (and what people list his stuff for) I'm still very surprised it sold for what it did.

Personally, I'm planning on doing that with all of my sketch covers (currently have five raw, and four graded). It's up to you, but I'd opt for grading and signature verification with that beauty.
