I've flipped out upon hearing that George will be appearing at the Supanova conventions here in Australia, especially in my home city of Melbourne.
I am just interested in the opportunity & also pricing (and I guess, in a manner of speaking, which currency is involved) :)
Note: all prices mentioned below are in US dollars.
As I understand it, George wrote that sketches are limited to usually 10 per day and are done through a lottery system. The lottery tickets are free to one person, but you can donate more ($1 per ticket) to the Hero Initiative to increase your chances of winning. Winners will still have to pay $100 for the sketch.
Due to a lack of time, George can only draw head portraits with chest symbol, and not full figures or pencil tones.
Unfortunately, as of this writing, George's commission list is full. I am sure he'll let me know if he'll accept new names on the list, but it's currently closed. If you are interested rates - they are "not cheap".
