From George Perez

Happy New Year to all my fans, friends and family!

Well, today, Jan. 19th, 2020, marks ONE YEAR since I officially announced my retirement from drawing comics and attending comic convention.

I have to say that my life has been quite nice, although a bit busier than I anticipated. I can tell you that I have been enjoying not having to deal with the stress and strain of air travel and trying to make my way through strange surroundings with my less-than-perfect vision.

However, there’s one thing I didn’t consider when I announced that I would no longer be attending conventions, sketching and doing commissions. I always took great pleasure and personal pride in the amount of money those activities raised for the many charities, friends and family members I’ve helped through the years. I find that, despite enjoying the downtime, I really do need to keep drawing …it is, after all, what I do and who I am.

So, that being said, after much consideration and a lot of requests, I’ve decided to start doing private home commissions again. There will be a few restrictions due to my vision issues, such as no backgrounds ( unless I decide to throw one in on my own ), no multi figure group shots, no portraits of real people and no cover recreations. What I will be able to offer are Full-Figure marker line art with pencil-tone illustrations on standard 11” X 17” comic industry Bristol Board and convention-style head shots on 9” X 12” Bristol paper ( no pencil tones ).

Please understand that these will not be inexpensive since I want to be able to raise as much money as possible and I’m limited to how many commissions I can draw any given week without straining my eyes & starting to see double.

For those that will be asking … the prices will be as follows :
  • Full-Figure marker line art with pencil-tone illustrations on standard 11” X 17” comic industry Bristol Board - $1,200.00 US dollars

  • Convention style head shots marker line art on 9” X 12” comic book board - $ 200.00 US dollars.

All prices are plus $30.00 for US domestic shipping ( Hawaii and Alaska add an additional $10 shipping )

International Shipping Rates based upon distance.

PayPal payments are acceptable and actually preferred. Ask for details when placing your order.

Further, in addition to my annual appearances at Dragon Con and Fetish Con … I have one more make-up convention appearance to honor in 2020, which should be officially announced in a few weeks … that will be my entire convention schedule for this year. For said appearance, we will accept a limited number of pre-convention sketch requests. There will be a limited quantity available. Check my fan website george-perez.net for more information as they become available.

Next bit of good news … In addition to the sketch offerings … I will also be offering private, bulk signings for those wishing to participate in those as well. CGC & CBCS signings are welcome as well as long as proper arrangements are made in advance. Minimum quantity for all signings are 50 pieces. Larger quantities are encouraged and available with proper arrangements as well. Prices available upon request based upon volume.

If any of this sounds desirable to you, please contact my long-time art agent Spencer Beck of The Artists Choice at SpencerBck@aol.com for any additional questions, concerns or other pertinent information regarding sketches and signings.

Attached are some examples of some sketches I’ve done for clients in the last few months to so that you can get an idea as to what I’m offering. I look forward to getting back to my drawing board for you!

Respectfully,
