Chicago Comic Con 09 report pt 3

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009 by Dave Wachter

Saturday night dinner: Andy recommended Maria’s, a nice Mexican place just up the street. It was a great restaurant, elegant without being pretentious. The food was terrific in that slightly higher end Mexican style, but with really decent prices. The low lights and wondering musician with light finger picking on his acoustic guitar made for a relaxing atmosphere with a touch of class. We had a big group, a dozen of us that evening. The lively conversation was at times humorous and enlightening. Back to the Hyatt once again where I just have to give thanks to Zack and Ben for bringing your backpack to the Hyatt! (more…)

Pittsburgh and Windy City Comicon sketch pre-orders!

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009 by Dave Wachter

I am now accepting sketch pre-orders for Pittsburgh Comicon (Sept. 11-13) and Windy City Comicon (Sept. 19). If you’re going to either of these cons, you can email me with a pre-order, which I will have finished and available to pick up at my table. I will be doing sketches at my table as well, but this helps me keep up with the demand I often receive and the sketches typically turn out better when I do them at home. The price structure is as follows:

Head sketch: 9×12, ink and grey tone= $15
Mini Commission: 9×12, ink and tone= $30 for the 1st character, $10 each additional.
Full Commission: 11×17, ink and tone= $100 1st character, $30 each additional.

You can pre-pay via PayPal to avoid carrying so much cash at the con, or you can pay me when you pick it up at the show. Just send me an email at [email protected]

Space is limited, so sign up early!

Here’s a few examples( you can see more on my art blog):
