Andrew Farago Takes on Jack Carter and John Wick!

I recently saw that several artists were doing commissions at reduced rates in support of The Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco.  How could I pass on a chance to get a new commission for my Stallone-themed Sketch Collection AND support a good cause at the same time? 

I couldn’t.

I looked at the list and decided to go with Andrew Farago.  Andrew is not only an artist and author but also the Chairman of the Northern California chapter of the National Cartoonists Society and the curator of the Cartoon Art Museum! I asked for Jack Carter and John Wick and Andrew came through like a champ!  

If you’re a sketch collector, The Cartoon Museum’s Sketch-A-Thon gets my highest recommendation.  The prices are super reasonable, there are several artists to choose from and there is even a digital sketch option!

Thanks again to Andrew Farago for the cool sketch and super service!

Chris Peterson’s Stanley from “Lords of Flatbush”!

Christopher Peterson is a Shuster-nominated comic artist who has worked for Dark Horse, Boom Studios, Image, Black Mask, and other companies.

Back in 2016, I saw that Chris’ computer died and he was sketching to raise money to replace his work station.  I set up a commission with Chris and he sent me this cool digital rendition of his take on Sly from Lords of Flatbush.  You can check out more of Chris’ art here or follow him on Twitter.

Rambo by Matthew Harrower

I hope you did this Rambo drawing by Matthew Harrower as much as me.

Matthew is an freelance illustrator and character artist. He’s influenced by his love of comics, transformers, mechs, John Woo movies and most things from his childhood. Matthew is currently studying for his Master’s Degree in Character Animation.

Tom Reilly Teams Jack Carter and John Wick!

I usually don’t post any of my Stallone commissions until I’ve received them, but Tom Reilly sent me a scan of the Jack Carter/John Wick piece he did for me and I like it so much I just couldn’t wait!

Tom Reilly is an artist from Mount Desert Island, Maine. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, with a BFA in Illustration. Tom’s work has been included in exhibits such as the Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Exhibition, the Rhode Island School of Design Illustration Triennial Exhibition, and the 2017 MoCCA Arts Festival.

You can check out more of Tom’s art at his website or follow him on Twitter.

John Wick, Jack Carter and Giovanni Valletta

When I saw that Giovanni Valletta, an artist on the John Wick comic series was taking commissions, I jumped on board for a couple of head sketches (John Wick and Jack Carter).  Because it took a little longer than expected to get the art to me Giovanni added more to the art and threw in some prints as well.  That’s customer service!

You can see more of Giovanni’s art at his site!
