    UPDATE: Mr. Perez is still honoring the 5 commission requests ($100 each). Those selected will be able to pick up the artwork at TERRIFICON at his agent: Spencer Beck at The Artists Choice booth.

    Details for the commission list is here

    >>>
    George Perez head sketch commissions for TerrifiCon will go on sale Wednesday, July 10th, 2019 at exactly midnight (Eastern Time Zone) when Wednesday, July 10th, 2019 becomes Thursday, July 11th, 2019 .

    To be fair, I will ONLY use the time stamp as given by my email host ( spencerbck@aol.com ) and they have the final word as to when it is received, not I. Any requests that come in before midnight will be disqualified ... even if they come in at 11:59:59 PM ..... 12 MIDNIGHT and not a second earlier. Bear in mind that for Amazing Comic Con - Hawaii, C2E2 and East Coast Comic Convention commission lists sold out in FOUR SECONDS (Yes, at 12:00:04 all commissions were sold out) so make sure to get your order in as quickly as possible at the deadline.
     
    Please make sure to include your EXACT request as any emails that come in without the character are disqualified and discarded. All orders must have your first and last name in them as well the exact request. Emails that say "Please put me on the list" do not count and are disqualified. You MUST have all of the requested info in the email. 

    Remember, Mr. Perez is doing single character, head shots ONLY and nothing else. One request per person, per name, per household, per family, or per address. You must be present at the show to pick up the artwork in person ... NO PROXIES

    Sketch cover or sketch book or jam board requests are NOT accepted. SORRY. Too many potential problems and we do not wish to be responsible for anyone having a bad experience should the item be lost, damaged or destroyed anywhere in the process or shipping thereof. Finally, he is doing only FIVE ( 5 ) commissions total for the show. There will be no on site drawing done.

    I hope this is not too blunt, and hopefully, this answers all outstanding questions. We reserve the right to adjust the rules should some unforeseen question come up that has not yet been addressed.

    Due to circumstances beyond his control, George Perez has to cancel Terrificon 2019

    Mohegan Sun Expo Center, Connecticut
    Good morning TERRIFICON fans, we have just received a direct message from artist George Pérez that it is with great sorrow and deep regret that due to circumstances beyond his control, he will not be able to appear on Friday, August 9 as planned.

    Mr. Pérez planned on returning and making TERRIFICON his final appearance (even if just for a day) in the North East on his retirement tour for well over a year. Great work and planning was put into scheduling this appearance as George wanted to say one last “thank you” to his fans.

    We are working with Mr. Pérez to obtain 275 (the same amount of autograph tickets he was going to hand out at the show) limited edition prints that he will sign and ship to TERRIFICON to be handed out to fans on a first come, first serve basis.

    We here at TERRIFICON want to thank George for his years of great work. Speaking for all his fans, we wish him a happy and healthy retirement.

    George Perez's possible 2019 shows

    Just speculation, but it may appear that George Perez's 2019 schedule is probably to make up for his cancellations from his 2017 shows due to his heart attack.

    So, given that information, below were his cancelled 2017 dates:
    • East Coast Comic Con 2019, NJ (Confirmed)
    • Terrificon 2019, Connecticut (Confirmed)
    • Amazing Hawaii Comic Con 2019, Hawaii (Update: Confirmed)
    • Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019, Las Vegas, NV
    • North American Science Fiction Convention 2019, San Juan, PR (unlikely, see note below)
    • Dragon Con 2019, Atlanta, GA (Likely confirmed)
    • Grand Rapids Comic Con 2019, Grand Rapids, MI
    Any shows outside of the USA may unlikely to happen, as George, in his own words, wrote in 2017: "I've been asked about several shows outside of the USA and just wanted to say that, while I do wish I could do more international shows, the stress of flying and going through customs and passport control (not to mention the number of itineraries that require multiple connections) ... there are no plans."
