New York Comic Con and Long Beach Comic Con commission pre-orders are open!
If you are attending NYCC 2014 I’m now taking commissions for pick up at the show ONLY. I do sketches at the con but my daily list fills quickly so this is your best opportunity to get your own customized piece. My partner Amy Mebberson is open as well.
Gray marker commissions start at $50 per character and full color pieces start at $70. More complex or additional characters, props, backgrounds, etc. go up from there.
I will also be attending Long Beach Comic Con on Saturday September 27th only. I’ll be taking a very small number of preorders for pick up at that show as well.
As a general rule, I don’t do caricatures of real people and I don’t know anything about anime or manga. Otherwise I look forward to your straight character or mash-up ideas. You can email me  at silvaniart@gmail.com with your requests or questions.

General commissions are open!
A break in my schedule opened up enough to either make a sandwich or take on some mailing commissions. Since the only bread I have left is rye, looks like commissions win.
All pieces are on 9x12’ sheets of bristol board and start at $60 per character for color art (like the piece pictured above) and $40 per character in grey marker. Prices go up for elaborate or additional characters, backgrounds, props, etc. There will be additional $10 charge for P&H.
Nothing dirty, bloody or anything else to disparage the characters. Also no caricatures (There are better people than me to do those than me). Otherwise, I look forward to hearing your suggestions
Email me for details and questions at silvaniart@gmail.com or send me an ask through tumblr.
Commissions are closed.

About Art Requests

Hey Gang,

I really appreciate the upturn in new followers lately, I hope you stick around. I also love getting your questions. Please feel free to forward me whatever thoughts or inquiries you might have. My FAQ is also open 24 hours a day.

Unfortunately the one thing I can’t accept online is unsolicited art requests. The mash-up drawings that I have posted on my tumblr are either commissioned pieces or sketches that were included with a purchase of one of my official Disney prints. I wish I had the time and resources to bring all your great suggestions to life. Just please remember that this is what I do for a living and for various legal reasons I cannot take an idea you have and put it down on paper unless we have some sort of contract or arrangement.

If you have an idea for a mashup the first thing to do is check my tumblr archives. If it’s something we both love it might be on there already. And if you do have an idea that you would like an original drawing of, I can be found at most of the major comic conventions around the country. I also might be opening up to mailing sketches with the purchase of a print later this year. I’ll announce it here first.

Thanks, now go eat a cookie.

NYCC Sketch requests and commissions are now open.

I have a lot to get done between now New York Comic Con. To make sure I can accommodate all requests I am now taking orders for the above prints and accompanying Disney sketches. I’m also open for non-Disney character commissions for pick up at the con.

This is for pre-orders that I will do before the con. I will be taking a new sketch list daily at the show but the slots fill up early so this is the best way to guarantee an original piece of art. Email me for details HERE!

Wondercon and C2E2 commission pre-orders are open!
Amy Mebberson and I will be attending Wondercon in Anaheim from March 29-31and C2E2 in Chicago from April 26-28. We will have joining tables in artist alley with sketchbooks, trade collections of our comics and lots of original art. (Sorry, no more conventions prints. Acme Archives is now the exclusive distributor of our prints.)
Of course we will be taking commissions during both shows but the only way to guarantee a piece is to order one ahead of time.
Amy will be opening up at a later time but I have a limited number of pre-order slots for each show starting now. All pre-order art is full color on 9”x12” bristol board. Prices start at $60 per character and go up from there. Mystify me with your mash-ups. Confound me with your crossovers. I look forward to your requests.
Email me HERE with your questions and ideas. I look forward to seeing you on the mainland. Bring a snack.

2013 Convention Schedule (so far) and an apology

Amy Mebberson and I are gearing up for another busy convention schedule. You will be able to see us at…

Emerald City Comic Con, March 1-3

Wondercon, March 29-31

C2E2, April 26-28

San Diego Comic Con International, July 18-21

D23 Expo, August 9-11

New York Comic Con, October 10-13

Amy will also be riding solo at the Granite State Comic Con, September 28-29

You may notice that missing from the list is the previously announced Megacon. Unfortunately we have had to pull out from that show due to work conflicts and a gator misunderstanding. We may be in Orlando for another event in June. Check back here for updates.

If you were planning to grab a commission or a sketchbook from me at that show, email me here and mention Megacon and I will make sure you are taken care of.

Also, check back here about 3 weeks before each one of the above cons for news regarding pre-orders and schedules. We have a new company that we are working with (more on that soon) so our convention workings may be different this year.

Otherwise we hope to see you and try your finest dairy products soon.

Update on Commissions and Sketchbooks…

The first round of mailings were sent out before Christmas and unfortunately I received reports of things arriving damaged, bent etc.

If you are waiting on a commission or a sketchbook I hope you will bear with me for a few more days. I’m searching for new backing boards and I will get the orders out as soon as they arrive. I apologize for the delay but I’m sure you would rather get your order undamaged rather than looking like it was delivered USPS Sarlacc Mail

Also if anyone has any resources on a 9”x12” backing board they would recommend, I would really appreciate it.

Hey youse mugs, It’s our latest @NY_Comic_Con racket!

amymebberson:

It is time for the unveiling of shiny new swag for New York Comic Con, running at the Javitz Center in New York October 12-14.

James Silvani & I will be at table C16 in Artist Alley and we will have two brand new pieces each for you all!

First, our new con-exclusive prints. These will not be available on-line(which none of our prints are anyway) nor at any other con. Extremely limited print run, get them while you’re there1

Presenting a mashup motherload : Time Lord Princesses and Pixar Star Wars!

Each print is 5.5 x 17” and costs $10

Once again, these are New York Comic Con ONLY prints and will not be available anywhere else after this con.

We also have brand new sketchbooks! 48 pages, full colour.

My book is the Best of Fun Sizes - all the favourite mashup minis I’ve done over the past 2 years. There are ones in here never seen online or anywhere before.

James’ book is a compilation of his best convention sketches and lord knows, con people always seem to come up with the funniest ideas. So if you’ve ever flipped through James’ art binder and can’t decide which of his pics you laughed at the most, here’s your chance to own 48 pages of them in one handy package!

Both sketchbooks will be $20 apiece and depending on our stock after the con, we may make these available to buy online, we shall see!

So come and get ‘em! Table C16, where we’ll also be taking our commission sketch lists all through the con, with a fresh list starting every morning. So if you want something original, come and see us! People who got precommissions can also come by and collect your shiny color works at table C16.

New York Comic Con commission pre-orders are now open!
So here’s the deal- work (the real stuff I do) has exploded and given me less opportunity to prepare for NYCC. That means I’m opening up now for a VERY limited amount of commission slots.
This time around I’ll only be taking COLOR 9”x12”commissions starting at $60 per character. I don’t travel with my full set of color markers (I gotta swim there from Hawaii fer chrissakes) so this will be the only way to get full color art. You can email me here with your requests.
Amy Mebberson and I will be taking fresh commission lists everyday of the show. We usually fill up by noon so get there early. If you want your piece done only in grey markers, I will take your orders at the con.
Remember this is for pick-up at NYCC only. I’m afraid I can’t take any mailing orders at this time. You can pick up your work at Artist Alley table C16. Don’t forget I will also have my first sketchbook debuting at the show.
Now, if someone will give me a Pound Puppies/Evil Dead mash-up, I’ll be on my way.

$60 and up for full color versions of the 9”x12” art. Color is available for pre-commissions only.
Amy and I always fill up early in the day for Comic Con so this is you best way to guarantee your art and pick it up at your leisure (Comic Con…? Leisure…?). Pre-commissions also allow us to do work away from the madness of the show floor and give your piece it’s full attention.

Because of time constraints I will not be taking mailing commissions until after the con. Thanks for your patience
