Hurricane Harvey Relief through Sticky Note Art

UPDATE! For the month of September 2017, together we raised $1285 in Post-It Note art sales to benefit relief for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Donations of $642.50 have been made to The Red Cross and Samaritan’s Purse Hurricane Relief funds.
My thanks to ALL of you who were able to purchase my September Post-It art pieces. And thanks to all who also inquired about purchasing a piece each time and day a new one posted. I appreciate everyone’s support for Hurricane relief as well as my art.
Next up! I am going to be auctioning off 2 sketch cover illustrations with proceeds going to benefit those affected by the Mexico earthquake and the Puerto Rico hurricane. Stay tuned to my site and social media for updates!
Thanks again and God bless!
Todd


I want to do what I can to help with the Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.
100% of the proceeds from the sales on my Sticky Note art posted for September 2017 will be divided up to go to the following charities to benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
American Red Cross
Samaritan’s Purse

How to purchase a Sticky Note illustration:
Follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook. When a new Sticky Note illustration posts during September 2017, first email in to me at mail@wildguard.com gets first shot at buying.
If the first person cannot complete the sale, the next email in, in the order emails are received, gets the next opportunity to buy. This process continues until that specific Sticky note art is sold.
Due to the number of emails that may come in for any given Sticky Note art, you may not receive a reply unless you are the first email in or next person to have an opportunity to buy that specific Sticky Note art.
Prices vary depending on the complexity and detail of art in the Sticky Note. Range has been $40-$100. But average has been around $50-$60.

Thanks for your participation in helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

ALL-NEW Todd Nauck convention commission list procedure!

Hi, friends and fans that I see or will meet on the convention circuit!

This is my all new convention commission list procedure! This post is kinda long so please read carefully!
I have a limited list of requests for convention commissions I take for each day of the convention I’m appearing at.

The night before each individual day of a con, I will take as many pre-booked spots as I can for that next day of the convention.

To get a spot on that next day’s list, you will need to visit this site’s front page (toddnauck.com) at 8pm (for the time zone that convention is in) for a code word. I suggest subscribing to my RSS feed (the orange square under Spidey on my site’s front page!) to get email updates for when new updates post to my site. This way you will not miss when the code word posts!

Once the code word has posted, send me an email with the following criteria:

A new CODE WORD will post and go in the email’s subject heading.
In the email’s body, I need:

  1. Your name.
  2. Specify if you are an attendee or exhibitor.
    (I allow only one exhibitor on my commission list for each day of the convention. The other spots are allotted for attendees. Badges will be checked the following day.)
  3. The type of commission you’re looking for (see options listed below).
  4. The name of character you would like for that commission.
  5. At least 3 alternate characters (in case I am not able to fulfill your first character suggestion request).
  6. Specify if you want your commission on my art board or if you are bringing a sketch cover or sketch book for your commission.
  7. List which days of the con you will be attending.
    (NOTE: You MUST be attending that convention to be on the list for that specific convention weekend. I will not be able to mail any commissions out from or after the convention.)
  8. Since I can take very few half figures each day, you may want to list a head shot alternate choice in case you make the list but I’ve already filled up on half figure commission allotment.

If I reply back, you are on that next day’s list! I will reply with how you can pay for your commission to lock it in. You must check in at my table the next day to secure your spot otherwise it will be offered up to someone else that day on the show floor.
I will either draw your commission on the con floor that next day or finish it in the hotel that next night for pick up the following day (and there is the slight possibility I will draw a commission or commissions the night of accepting requests, time permitting).

YOU MUST BRING YOUR I.D. and CONVENTION BADGE/PASS FOR COMMISSION PICK-UP!
I will specify a time for you to come by my table for you to confirm and pay for your commission. If you have not done so my that time that spot on the list will be offered up to those at my table via dice roll.

Due to the number of emails I may receive, I cannot guarantee I will be able to reply if you do not make the next day’s list. So if you haven’t heard back from me by the following morning, my list for that day has filled.

I will repeat this email process with a new code word each night before the next day of that convention. So if you didn’t get on my list on Thursday night for Friday’s list, there is always Friday night’s code word to get a shot at Saturday’s list and so on.
Remember! Each code word is ONLY for that following day’s list! So the weekend would look kinda like this (depending on length of the specific convention):

  • Wednesday night code word email for Thursday’s list
  • Thursday night code word email for Friday’s list
  • Friday night code word email for Saturday’s list
  • Saturday night code word email for Sunday’s list

And it’s possible I may offer one other option of getting a commission on the show floor on the days of the convention.
At this time, if there is still space on my list for that day, 30 minutes after the convention opens for general admission, I will allow people who are not on my list to roll dice for that last spot. The first person to roll double numbers will be able to take that last slot on that day’s list.
Here are my current convention commission prices/options!
Due to the number of requests for my commissions, I can only allow one commission per person per convention in hopes of accommodating more people.
All commissions are single character!

  • Head shot black and white on 7″x10″ (roughly) art board, on your sketch cover comic, or personal sketchbook: $50
  • Head shot color Copic markers on 7″x10″ (roughly) art board, on your sketch cover comic, or personal sketchbook: $80
  • Half figure black and white on 9″x12″ art board, on your sketch cover comic, or personal sketchbook: $150
  • Half figure color Copic markers on 9″x12″ art board, on your sketch cover comic, or personal sketchbook: $220
    *NOTE: Commission requests that require celebrity or actor likenesses may be declined. No personal or your creator-owned characters, please.

I know this is a lot of info to take in. It may even seem confusing. But I’ve been wracking my brain to find a new and as fair as possible convention commission list procedure that does not require people to have to get up unreasonably early and/or run to my table to try to get a spot on my list.

I sure hope this works and makes things less stressful for everyone in the long run!
I’ll also have some 9×12 pre-drawn studio commissions and 11×17 original comic art pages for sale at my table as well as limited edition prints and sketchbooks.
Click HERE for more info! And check back here for any possible updates to this info!

I thank EVERYONE for their continued support and understanding.
You all are awesome and I hope you will stop by my table to say “Hi!”
-Todd

Sketch Retweet Contests postponed for 2016

Hey, gang!
Regretfully, I have to discontinue my Sketch Retweet Contest for the rest of my 2016 convention appearances.
It seems Lary Stucker (my longtime friend, former Young Justice inker, now web marketing guru) and I have lost access to our tracking technology. So, since we cannot accurately track everyone’s tweets of my convention sketches, we cannot fairly find a winner.
So for the time being, and until we can create or access new tech that let’s us keep the contest accurate and fair, I will have to postpone my Sketch Retweet Contests on Twitter for the foreseeable future.
Our hope is to have new tracking technology ready for the 2017 convention season! And if we can get set up before then, I’ll be sure to announce the contests are back on as soon as possible!
I appreciate everyone’s support for and enjoyment of my art! You all are awesome!!! I plan to still post my convention sketches each weekend for you all to at least see.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support!
Todd
