Sketch Retweet Contest Info and Rules

When retweeting one of my sketches during one of my convention sketch retweet contests…
JUST click the RETWEET “square arrow” button!
I’ve found some people use the older method of quote retweets or RT retweets. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find each of those individual retweets.
So from here on out, any other or older method, like quote retweets or RT retweets, will NOT be included in the running for the sketch prize.
ONLY “retweet button” clicks are eligible for the sketch prize.


I figured I should state that first and foremost so everyone is sure to get the new info!

I’ve been doing my Sketch Retweet Contest on my Twitter feed during my convention appearances for just over a year and a half. It’s my way of bringing a bit of that convention to you. The response to these “contests” has been great! And growing! Each batch of convention sketches gets more and more retweets. Some of you discovered my work through one of my contests.
I appreciate the support from new and long-time fans alike. Thank you for faithfully retweeting my sketches to your Twitter followers during each of my conventions. I hope y’all are having as much fun as I do during the convention weekend.

Over the past few conventions and the growing number of sketch retweets, I’m finding certain Twitter parameters makes tracking each retweet more and more challenging. So in an effort to make sure everyone continues to get a fair shot at the original sketch prize I am instituting that new rule posted at the beginning.

The “retweet button” clicks are very simple for me to find on the Twitter Trackback site I use. And with the increasing volume of retweets, I need to keep things easy, clean, and clear. I still have work deadlines to get back into after each convention! 🙂

I thank you all again for your continued support and enjoyment of my work!
I’m at New York Comic Con this weekend so a new Sketch Retweet Contest starts on Thursday!
Remember! You DO NOT have to attend the convention to retweet sketches for a chance at the sketch prize. It is open to anyone, anywhere, with a Twitter account!
So keep on retweeting those sketches! (with the retweet button, please!)

New York Comic Con Oct. 10-13, 2013

I’m going to be at New York Comic Con Oct 10-13. You can find me with my good pal and superstar writer/inker, Andy Lanning, at Artist Alley table A-2.

Here are my current convention commission sketch prices/options and how it works for me during the weekend.
I will most likely be taking a sketch list instead of drawing each commission as each person waits in line. So hit my table early to make sure you get on the list! I hope to do a new list for each day.

Convention Commission specs:

  • Head shot black and white on 7″x10″ (roughly) art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $40
  • Head shot grayscale Copic markers on 7″x10″ (roughly) art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $60
  • Half figure black and white on 9″x12″ art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $100
  • Half figure grayscale Copic markers on 9″x12″ art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $140

I’ll also have my Volume 1 Sketchbook, 4 art prints and some original art/commissions for sale.
I hope this info helps. There is a possibility info could change between now and the convention, so stay tuned to my social networks or subscribe to my the RSS feed at for possible updates.
More convention appearance announcements to come!

And this 11″x17″ Kitty Pryde piece will be auctioned off during the con to help raise money for the St Jude’s Children’s Hospital Charity Auction! The Charity Auction is Saturday night at 8:00pm in room 1A17 and if you’re interested in attending and helping a really great cause!
