These limited edition prints were made for the Treviso Comic Book Festival in Italy last year. The theme of the festival was “comics and sport” and New Zealand was the guest country (as reported at From Earth’s End and Pikitia Press). Hence the image of a saintly Silver Fern over Treviso.

They’re high quality Giclée prints on heavy German etching paper.
Dimensions: A3 (297 x 420 mm, 11.7 x 16.5 inches).
Shipped rolled in tube.

Price: US $49 (including postage)

Here are some of the sketches people ordered last month (note: I’m still learning about scanning watercolours, so the colour on these isn’t entirely accurate). I’m steadily making my way through the queue, so if you’re still waiting for yours, you’ll hopefully get it soon!

I will draw you a picture – SOLD OUT (for now!)

Friday, February 10th, 2012

UPDATE: Wow! So many of you wanted drawings I got enough orders in a few hours to keep me busy for some time! So I’ve had to suspend the offer while I draw my way through the pile of orders. Apologies if you missed out, but I may do a similar offer some time in the future, if time allows. Many thanks to everyone who requested a drawing. This is fun!

Also, I’m still available, as always, for more substantial (and – er – expensive) commissions. Feel free to email me to ask about that. Otherwise, follow me on Twitter or Facebook to be notified of future offers like this.

I’m in the mood for drawing! Plus I recently got some new watercolours and I’m keen to try them out. Plus, y’know, bills to pay etc etc.

So here’s the deal:

Tell me what to draw and I’ll draw it: one of my characters, someone else’s character, something sweet, silly or even downright rude (you’ve seen The Magic Pen, right?). If it’s too complicated or tricky, I’ll let you know – but actually, I feel like flexing those sketchin’ muscles, so bring it on! And of course, if you can’t think of anything, I’ll just draw whatever I feel like.

I’ll then send you the original drawing, for you to hang on the wall or file in a drawer or give to a loved one or use as a bookmark or whatever else you want to do with it.*

The prices – did I mention they’re ridiculously low? – are only $50 for a colour drawing or $30 for black & white (+ $8 postage and packaging). All drawings will be on A5 paper (148.5mm x 210mm or 5.8 x 8.3 inches).

Now, those are not my usual prices. Hell, no! This is, you see, a one-off special Dylan’s In the Mood deal that will only last until I get too busy with real work or my hands are too sore to pick up a brush. So strike now while the pencil is sharp and TELL ME WHAT TO DRAW!

$50 (+p&p)

All prices are in US Dollars.
Postage & packing (to anywhere) is $8.
These are sketches, not fully-fledged commissions. If you want something more substantial, just drop me a line and let’s talk.

Charity art auction: buy a page from Atlas and help Ella

Monday, February 1st, 2010

EllaUpdate: the page sold (to a very generous Wellingtonian who added an additional donation to his winning bid!). And Ella’s family have indeed raised enough money to take her to the conference. A big thanks to everyone who helped out!

This week I’m selling a page of original art from Atlas #1 on TradeMe to help raise money for some very dear friends of ours, whose daughter Ella has growing problems with her eyesight. Ella is one of the loveliest, sweetest kids I know, but her case is unusual enough that numerous tests and treatments have failed to nail the problem.
