ARTIST: COMMISSIONS AVAILABLE
After selling much of my artwork to people at the conventions I do for my book, I decided it would be a great idea to offer it via the web. I'm available to you to draw whatever you like - simply send me an email with what you'd like (as specific as possibly would be wonderful) - my email is KVARESIO@AOL.COM - your address by which to send it (unless you live in South Jersey, by which I may be able to make arrangements to have it dropped off to you), or even digitally - where I can email you the drawing through scanning it (that approach may not be too popular, but it would be easy for everyone). All other information is available upon inquiry.
My rates are as follows [rates may vary depending on what you would like done]:
$10: per character sketched
$5: extra for penned sketch
$5: extra for colored sketch
