Sales and Pricing

As auctions end I will edit posts with a fixed price. If you're interested in something that doesn't have a price just ask. I may have just overlooked post. Again, for the time being, any art posted before this post is for sale with proceeds going to hurricane relief.

My pricing for now is $1 per square inch for an inked drawing. As an incentive, any art being sold for hurricane relief is 50% off.

Edit: I'm experimenting with Etsy. Here's my shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MichaelLynchArt?ref=search_shop_redirect

My Little Superhero


Inktober 31st

Two hours ago I had no idea what I would draw for today. Then my five year old decided to put on her rainbow unicorn cape and head gear over her Batgirl pajamas. Whammo! I had the drawing I would end Inktober with.

This Inktober worked way better than last year. I got a lot more comfortable inking, and inking with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen in particular. I also feel I've gotten into a better routine of drawing. Developing a habit of drawing every day was one of my goals for this Inktober challenge. Now to keep it going.

I won't be posting every day, but I do plan to post more frequently than I have this past year. I picked up a couple commissions that I will share when they're finished. I also plan to finish a project that I've been working on for a couple of years. I'm taking that in a bit of a new direction and I'm happy with the way that's going so far.

So even though Inktober's done, I hope you come back and see what I'm working on. You can subscribe to the blog using the tool to the right. Also, if you're interested in a commission feel free to contact me.  At this time I'm only doing black and white drawings right now, but I'd be happy to consider what you want done.

As far as hurricane relief, anything posted prior to this post is still designated to that cause. I will probably let the auctions end and just have a fixed price for any available pieces from here on out.

That's all for now. I'm tired.

Mike

Unbreakable

Inktober 29th.

I watched M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable last night. With all of the superheroes I put on this blog, it's only right that I'd draw something from a film that I would easily place in my top five favorite superhero movies.

40 YEARS OF STAR WARS


Last year, the Sleeping Beauty drawing I did at my daughter's request was one of the most popular posts I shared. This is kind of a riff on that piece. I'm happy with the design and I think I'll return to this idea at some point to produce a more complete illustration.

World's Finest Preview


I'm not going to get this entire illustration done tonight, so I'm going to make this my Inktober 12th pic.

At the start of Inktober I said I was planning to use the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen for all of my drawings. Well, I'm switching it up with this one. I may have a couple of commissions coming so I'm getting some practice with the Pitt Artist Pens here to help me decide what I will use for the commissions.

"A NEW HOPE"

Inktober 5th.

I probably shouldn't attempt likenesses with these quick drawings, and I had to draw this one really quick to get it in today. Or maybe I should attempt more likenesses and push myself. Hmm....

Anyway, this being the 40th anniversary of the first Star Wars movie, I wanted to make sure I got some drawings in to honor it. I have at least one other planned for this Inktober.

Here's the Ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Luke-Skywalker-Ink-Drawing-8x10-Proceeds-minus-fees-go-to-Hurricane-Relief/122740992645

Batman: The Animated Series

I had planned to do another villain for today's Inktober drawing, but I had enough with real life villains in the last couple of days and just wasn't feeling it. So I'm going with good guys for a while. 

I've been wanting to do some kind of homage to Batman: The Animated Series since it's debut was 25 years ago in September. So there you go.

KIRBY CHARACTERS: Quicksilver

Here's my first drawing for Inktober. I plan to stick to my usual subject matter, but I'm using the official Inktober prompt list. "Swift" may be an understatement for Quicksilver, but he was the next character I planned for my Kirby Character series.

I'm also planning to only use the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen for all of these drawings. I would really like to improve my ability to use that tool.

The scan came out kind of pixelated. Any tips on reducing that when scanning would be much appreciated.

And most importantly, here's the Ebay listing for this drawing. All proceeds, minus Ebay and PayPal fees, go to hurricane relief. I think that's about 87% of final sale will go to helping victims of the recent hurricane disaster.

Edit: Not using Ebay any more. I'm trying out Etsy and direct from me. This one is $20.00. Free shipping.

Quicksilver was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics. His first appearance was in X-Men #4 (1964).

Inktober and Hurricane Relief

As I said in my last post, I will be selling Inktober drawings for hurricane relief. I've already listed some old stuff on Ebay with all proceeds going to hurricane relief and as Inktober progresses I will list more. You can see my Ebay store here or click on the button at the top of the blog page.

I've worked out a few details:

  • The conditions in Puerto Rico appear to be dire. Unless the buyer requests that the money goes to Texas or Florida, I will be donating it to help Puerto Rico.
  • I mostly base prices on size of drawing. Roughly $1 per square inch. I'm setting starting bids at 50% off or more. I will cover shipping. Also, there are many pieces on the blog that are already sold. But if something isn't listed on Ebay, that doesn't mean it's unavailable. If you're interested in something, feel free to ask. It may still be available. 
  • I've designated all sales for Inktober drawings and any art that has already been posted to hurricane relief. Obviously this can't be indefinite, but his will be the status through the end of the year. At that time I will reevaluate things. I have a feeling, especially in the case of Puerto Rico, that this will extend past the end of the year. 
I think that's it, but if you have any questions or suggestions please let me know.

Thanks for looking,
Mike

Inktober

I wasn't going to do it, but I think I will give it a shot again. Inktober. 31 days, 31 ink drawings. I don't know if I'll be able to keep up with it, but I'm going to try. This time, however, it will have a bigger purpose. 

I'm going to auction every drawing that I think has a chance of selling. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to help victims of the recent disasters. On top of anything I create for Inktober, any available drawing on the blog that was published prior to this post can be bought for the same purpose. 

I'm also taking requests for Inktober, so if there is something you'd like to see me draw feel free to let me know. There will be no pressure to buy, but I will give you first dibs before I put it up for auction. I'm still working out prices and starting bids, but I will keep them reasonable. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for looking,
Mike
