Hello to all!

First of all, I want to once again thank everyone for all the well wishes, prayers, emails, cards and texts and phone calls since news of my recent heart attack hit social media. I am touched, flattered and humbled by all the love and concern.

As most everyone knows, my commitment to recovery has forced me to cancel all my convention appearances and my regular workload has shrunk to nearly zero, by my own choice, since producing deadline driven detailed comics work in my current condition is not really practical or recommended. However, despite all my hopefully temporary limitations, I am still an artist, and I really do need to keep drawing something. So. After doing a few private commissions for some friends, I have decided to offer home commissions to the public again, but in order to keep my stress levels as low as
possible, with some strict guidelines.

Samples are available upon request of what I am offering.

Each commission will be limited to one single character per drawing, usually drawn with Copic markers with added pencil tones on 9 x 12 Bristol board. . I prefer using the pencil tones because detailed ink work is a bit eye wearying right now, especially with my vision treatments still ongoing. No backgrounds will be added unless I choose to add something minimal subject
to my own judgement on the composition.

The price is $700.00 plus shipping, which I know is not cheap, but I will try to make it worth the cost.

Payment in full would be required before the commission will be started.  However, it will be held in escrow so if at any time you wish a full refund ( and your piece has not yet been started ) the money can be refunded to you within 1 business day. Depending on the number of orders, it may take a substantial amount of time and there is no guarantee that I will be able to draw every request I receive.

I can only draw one of these on any day and I need to limit myself to a 5-day week (allowing me time to do whatever professional work I do accept from the kind publishers during the course of the year).

Any interested parties should contact my art agent Spencer Beck of The Artist’s Choice for any further details and for placing a commission request at 

I do not want to blister my thumbs twiddling, so being able to get back to some drawing, however limited, will definitely be good for my personal, physical and artistic well being.

Thanks and take care,
George Pérez
