“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

BAT KEMPER_90 minutes

[22.9 x 30.5cm - blue pencil, brush & technical pen on 100lb/300series bristol board]


I've been away for a while.

I feel bad about neglecting my blog, but it's only because I've been ridiculously busy trying to set up my 2013 by way of work so that I know exactly what I'm in for. I'm horrible when it comes to actually scheduling and parceling my time so that I meet most of my deadlines, and I'm trying to make a more concentrated effort in getting that part of my professional responsibilities on track.

Let me be honest with you - January just passed and I'm already behind.

It is to say, that in trying to stay ahead, I've managed to fall behind in updating this blog. I will try my very best to not make that into a habit. But... BUT! If you're in the business of seeing some of my WIP (that's 'Work In Progress', for the non-acronym savvy), you can always visit my INSTAGRAM account or follow me on TWITTER. And while I have a tendency to spout my mouth off at those two social media avenues, more than often I preview some of the images I'm working on before they're posted here in their full glory.

Anyway, thanks for always coming back and checking out the work and passing the link to the blog to others. I really can't thank you enough for the unique traffic hits. I'm humbled and grateful.

Okay. Enough with the talking. Here are some images.

PS - For those interested, the original for the image above is for sale from my art dealer's site. Please click on the ESSENTIAL SEQUENTIAL link right under the image in bold text. Thanks for your support!

Your commission rates and info link goes to a post from 2006; any chance of an update (specifically regarding your ECCC plans)? Thanks.


@Jon Hemmert All of those rates are up to date, but address commission works that are taken online and delivered to customers though the post of FedEx.

Commissions taken at a convention are about $50-100 less depending on the size of the image. It is suggested you set up your early commission request though Jason Schacther via EssentialSequeqntial.com so that you have a guaranteed placement on the commission list.

Thank you for your inquiry.
