I am gearing up for Toronto Fan Expo and I am opening up a commission list for those who will be attending the show.

Here's how it will work:
If you want a commission, email me here (jason_fabok@yahoo.com)
and tell me the character that you want drawn. You HAVE to be present at Fanexpo.  I will not be doing commissions outside of this.  Once you show up at fanexpo and come find me at my booth, I check off your name and will work on the art over the weekend. It will be first come, first serve at the show.  I may take more commissions at the show if I'm able to work my way through my list.  Please do not put your name on the list if you are simply hoping to have a placeholder and will later choose not to get one done.  Serious buyers only.

Commissions will be drawn on 11x14 paper, or 11x17 paper, in pencil and will be bust/torso drawings.  My rate is $140 for pencil per character, no backgrounds please.

I will also be offering an inked/copic marker commission sketch for an extra $80.  Those would be on 11x14 or 11x17 and total $220 per character, no backgrounds please.  

I will not be doing quick sketches or head sketches. I would like to get a decent ammount of commissions to do and work on them over the weekend and not rush them out the door.

I will also have a number of prints for sale there as well, including some of the covers I've done and an exclusive Batman print that will be numbered for the show (about 50 of them).  Prints are $15 ea. or 3 for $40.  The exclusive will be $20.

Again, send your email to me at jason_fabok@yahoo.com with a SUBJECT HEADING OF: FANEXPO COMMISSION.  Feel free to ask any questions there!  Sorry for all the rules, but I'd like this to be organized, which leads to less stress on my end!

Thanks!!

Taken from my blog (www.jasonfabok.blogspot.com) on Sunday, June 18, 2011

My good friend, David Buck ( DavidBuckWeddings.com ) informed me over dinner a few nights ago that I hadn't updated my blog in a while with anything new.  So, for him (and the people who want to know what's happening in my world of comics) here is a little update.
   I finished up issue 4 of Batman: The Dark Knight this past week.  What an experience!  This book was one of the biggest labours of love I've ever done.  Batman has been my favourite character in comics since I was 5 and to be working on one of the main Batman titles at this time in my career was a dream come true.
  The script that Dave Finch wrote was a lot of fun to draw.  I've been lucky work with JT Krul and now Dave on my last few books.  JT knows how to write for an artist and Dave, being an artist, knows how to really tell a great visual story.  This also gave me a chance to work closely with Dave on the layouts and get his final approval on the finished pages.  Ryan Winn is inking the book and has been really blowing me away with his skills.   I feel this book is really going to look fantastic.
  I started issue 5 on thursday and I'm excited about the final issue of the first run.  This book is going to be packed with some really insane detail.  It's going to be a hard book to pump through but I think the final outcome will have fans excited.
  It's also been really great to interact with my editors at DC.  I've been blessed to have some really great bosses in my short career.  First with Eddie Berganza and Adam Schlagman on my first few jobs, then with Vince Hernandez at Aspen and now with Mike Marts and Katie Kubert at DC.  Mike is a great guy and we really get along well.  His enthusiasm and passion for Batman and making every comic the best on the shelves really pushes myself to perform at top notch quality.
  I've also been doing some signings and appearances here and there.  I got to speak to my old High School art class a week ago.  That was a blast.  My art teacher, Sue Leslie has been a great friend and inspiration to my life and career and it's always cool to go back and see your teachers (and I'm sure they like it when you bring a giant stack of your work to give to them).  I also did a signing with my good buddy Tony Gray (The Incredible Conduit), who lives and works in Windsor, at Border City Comics.
  So far, looking back on the first year of my career, I am really thankful for all of the opportunities I have been given and the trust that Aspen and DC is giving me with their properties.  Hoping this next year opens up even more doors.
