RETCON TORSO SKETCH COMMISSION LIST

The dawning of another convention year for me, and this time Sweden has drawn the short straw and must tolerate me, my "jokes" and also my "face". This April 29th, I'm gonna be at RETCON, in Helsingborg, Sweden! I know! Bonkers.

The show's shaping up pretty well, in direct spite to my attendance. Simon Furman will be there adding a touch of class, and I'm mainly there to see him, really. He's great. For more details about the show, please go to http://retcon.se/2017/ grab a ticket and come join the party!

So I'll be bringing the usual Roche Roadshow; LOTS of MTMTE, Wreckers and Lost Light prints, and original covers and pages for sale. I'm also taking on commissions ahead of the show, which you can order below. I'll be doing a VERY LIMITED amount of sketching at the show, but spread the world around about the sketchlist I'm opening up, and make sure you all get on it!

Pre-Order Price for an A4 Black & White TORSO ONLY shot is SEK 670; add SEK 330 for ONE additional character

To be eligible for these, all you need to do is:

* Reply in the comments section below,
* State YOUR name, the name of the CHARACTER you want.
* Sorry, no fan/original characters, but feel free to request non-TF characters!


And there's no obligation to buy anything from me, obviously. Just pop along to my table for a chat!

See you there, Sweden!

TRAVELLING MAN SKETCH LIST AND SIGNING DETAILS!

Hey all! To push SINS OF THE WRECKERS to Christmas bestselling dominance, and also to launch LOST LIGHT #1 -- the re-named and re-looked More Than Meets The Eye -- Travelling Man comic shop in Manchester are hosting a pre-Christmas shindig that also operates as an IDW staff night out. James Roberts, Jack Lawrence and I will be there flirting outrageously with each other, and if we think you won't press charges, you.


I'll be bringing art prints to sell. Lots of More Than Meets The Eye and Wrecker-themed goodies to be had, but here's your chance to get some original art commissioned ahead of Saint Christ's Day.

There are TWO Sketch options available: Headshot or Bust.
Headshots are £35.
Busts are £60.

To request one, just add a comment below, use the hashtags #HEAD or #BUST to denote what you'd like, and I'll do my damnedest to get it done!

I like drawing robots, but I enjoy drawing a crowd even more, so regardless of buying stuff from my sorry ass, pop along to Travelling Man on December 17th at 2pm to meet three men who couldn't be more pleased with themselves.

Cheers!

TFCON CHICAGO 2016 TORSO SKETCH COMMISSION LIST

++UPDATE 21-9-16 ++

ALL AVAILABLE SLOTS CURRENTLY FILLED! KEEP AN EYE ON TWITTER NEARER THE CONVENTION FOR NEWS OF NEW SLOTS.

MAYBE.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

++END UPDATE++


This year, I've decided to tarnish TFCON Chicago (October 21st-23rd, at the Hyatt Regency: http://www.tfcon.com/) with my presence. I haven't done an American convention since 2009, and I've had two whole Wreckers series come out since then, so I figured I should at least apologise for my absence in person.


As it stands, I'm NOT a guest of the show, just a regular exhibitor/vendor/journeyman type, but the reaction I've had at some European shows in the wake of Sins Of The Wreckers release led me to decide that now is definitely a good time to take the plunge. I've just heard too many good things about the event, and who knows when I'll have enough robot heat again to warrant a visit to one of these shindigs. So, I'm very much looking forward to meeting my fellow IDW creators, and all of you nice folks who chat with me on Twitter, and buy my comics, etc...

I'm there throughout the whole weekend (might have to nip off an hour early on the Sunday for my flight, we'll see) and will have lots of prints (including my MTMTE cast shots) and even original artwork on display and for sale. My current experience of these events is that I haven't got much - if any - time to sketch AT the convention itself. If I can take on sketch requests at TFCon itself that I can guarantee to finish on time without mailing them out, I surely will. But the likelihood is that these commission slots here are all I can be sure of completing, so roll up! Here's how you can get your hands on some tailor-made Nick Roche robot (or otherwise) art!

Pre-Order Price for an A4 Black & White TORSO ONLY shot (20 available) is $100; add $50 for ONE additional character

To be eligible for these, all you need to do is:

* Reply in the comments section below
* State YOUR name, the name of the CHARACTER you want, and an idea of the day you'll be available to collect the piece.
* Sorry, no fan/original characters, but feel free to request non-TF characters!
* The numbers available are as stated above. Once they've been filled, please don't send any more requests unless further slots become available.  

* ONE Sketch PER PERSON. Please don't make multiple requests. 
* Payment must be at TFCon, NOT via Paypal in advance
*I will only be able to accept CASH at TFCon Chicago, no cards. 
* PLEASE only order a sketch if you will be able to attend to pick it up, and, you know, pay for it.
* Seriously, this happens a LOT. It's not cool, and I will name and shame offenders!
I've always wanted to meet like-minded people in a Chicago hotel, so help me make my dream come true. See you there!

TFNATION 2016 PRE-SHOW TORSO SKETCH COMMISSION LIST

And a new price point for something different this year. I've found more and more that a head sketch turns into... well, something more. I run away with the sketches, but end up charging the same for extra detail and work. Alan Sugar would FIRE my ass for that.

With that in mind, I'm taking on TORSO sketches at TFNation this year. Ooh La La, indeed. These are waist-up half figure sketches, with AT LEAST one limb and/or interesting background element. These are going for £60 each, but hopefully you'll enjoy the bang you receive for your UK buck.

Here's how to get on THAT list...
Pre-Order Price for an A4 Black & White TORSO ONLY shot (10 available) is £60

To be eligible for these, all you need to do is:

* Reply in the comments section below,
* State YOUR name, the name of the CHARACTER you want, and an idea of the day you'll be available to collect the piece.
* Sorry, no fan/original characters, but feel free to request non-TF characters!
* PLEASE only order a sketch if you will be able to attend to pick it up, and, you know, pay for it.
* The numbers available are as stated above. Once they've been filled, please don't send any more requests unless further slots become available.
* I will be providing more sketches AT TFNation. I tend to get booked up VERY quickly there, but if you don't want to commission me here and now, you could take your chance at the show.

Let's see how this goes as an experiment, eh? 

Looking forward to seeing you!
