Opening up Commission list-July

I’m opening up a couple of slots on my commission list. These commissions, or what I like to call Personalized Illustrations, are one of a kind and unique to you and are great for gifts or special events.

So what are they? Really, they can be anything you want. It could be you and your loved one as characters from your favorite movie, or a superhero team from a popular comic book. They’re not limited to just comic books or movies. They can be from video games, tv shows or even made up. I’ve done mash-ups like Doctor Who meets Willy Wonka. It can be an imagined meet up with Tiger Woods on the golf green, giving your dad a winner’s jacket, while you and your family are in the background holding up a banner which celebrates his 60th birthday. Or it can just be you and your fiance, on a romantic date, sitting in your living room in front of the fire imagining your futures together. It really is anything.

The whole process of creating this personalized illustration is really quite easy and effortless for you. All I need is some moments of your time to go over any ideas you might have and from that I hope to create a composition that will blow you and your loved one’s socks off! Once the composition is taken care of, then I go through my process, from rough sketch to finished drawing. This part of the process still involves you and so you get to see the illustration develop before your eyes.

So if this sounds like something you’re interested in, and would like a booking, please contact me soon at kgrachow@jnkimagery.com as slots are limited.

Ottawa Comic Con 2015

Ottawa Comic Con is just around the corner( May 8th-10th). This year will be my 4th year attending (I’ve been going since it’s inception) and each year seems to get better than the last. In addition to having Concrete Martians Part 2, I’ll also have What Does Slog Do? the second children’s book  in the Up-In-The-Sky series available. I’ll also have my Monster Prints, Pooh in Space Prints, and will be doing commissions, as well as signing up people for personalized illustrations! For those of you that are interested in animation, I’m also hosting a panel with Kurt Lehner called Breaking into Disney Animation which will be held on the Friday at 5:15pm in Meeting RooM B. It’ll be moderated by the boys of  the End Credits Podcast. You can listen to my first chat with them here.

So if you are going to the con, you can find me at table 2510 in Artist Alley. I hope to see you all there!
