LIMIT TWO COMMISSIONS PER PERSON PER CONVENTION<br> There are plenty of examples of my sketches on my FB pages so that should give you an idea of the quality I strive to achieve to justify the high prices. <br> <br> Starting September 5th, if you’re still interested I just need to know which convention you’ll be attending, the character(s) you’d like, and the format. First come, first served.<br> <br> Good luck!See More</a>George Pérez Fan Page
