some additional information….
Sketchbooks: we will have both of this year's new sketchbooks with us at the show; they are $20 each. We should have a small number of books left from last year; they are $30 each.
Prints: we will have a selection of prints ranging in price from $20 to $100. As always, our quantities are limited, so please come by our booth early in the weekend to check out what's available.
Signatures: Anytime Adam is not scheduled for head sketches, if you catch him at the table, he will be glad to sign anything he has worked on. For the time being, Adam does not charge for signatures. But we are aware that many people have been taking advantage of artists that sign for free, and so that we may continue to do so, we ask the following:
• Please be considerate and limit the number of things they would like to have signed to a reasonable amount. If you have so much that it will prevent other people from getting things signed, we will ask you to pick your 10 favorites for Adam to sign and politely decline to sign the rest.
• If you have an excessive number of items that you would like Adam to sign, you are welcome to get 10 items signed, and get back in the line for another 10. You may continue to do this until Adam completes his signing session, or we deem it to be ridiculous.
• Do not ask for a signature "and just a little sketch". That is what the scheduled head sketch times are for.
Sketching: Adam no long is able to do full convention sketches at show appearances. Instead, he will gladly do a quick head sketch for $20. Each sketch is a profile of a character of your choice; if you want a lesser known character, please have reference ready. And remember; this is only a head sketch. You are best off picking a character that you can easily identify from the neck up. And please, no portraits of yourself, your partner, your kids, or anything outside of the realm of popular culture. This isn't the boardwalk, and Adam isn't a caricature artist.
Each sketch is a quick profile drawing in marker. Feel free to check eBay if you'd like to see what they look like, or you can swing by our table at the show and see how they look as Adam does them. He will not be able to do more detail, or vary from the standard profile for more money, so please don't ask. He will have small pieces of paper available to draw on (while supplies last) but you are most welcome to bring your own paper, sketchbook or blank sketch comic covers for Adam to draw on. For anyone that would like more than one profile on their sketch, you are welcome to get back in line after your first sketch to get another, provided that the line isn't cut off.
I think that about covers it- see you next weekend in Baltimore!
