Commissions are sexy



Just to clarify, its alx_noriega(at)hotmail.com

edit 1: Ok, so as I expected, a lot of people want to have an idea of what a commission would cost before considering it. It makes sense. For one illustration (or a one panel comic, however you want to call it) think about 100 dollars. This changes depending on the amount of details (it´s not the same to draw your grandma on a bike, than drawing the battle of Waterloo in color... it simply takes longer) . If you want a whole one page comic in color, it would be around 200 dollars... and so on. This is just so you have an idea of what you commission would cost. But at the end it depends of the time I have to put into it.... It is expensive, but you have to think about how many of these I need to draw to make a decent salary... now think of the time you spend at work surfing the web and actually getting paid. Now think of a pink elefant wearing a hat and a monocle...

Voilà!

Hi Alex,

If you're looking for a way to make money out of your blog (and why not!), why don't you consider selling prints of your comics? I believe that's something Penny-Arcade tried and it's doing well for them.

Dee said...

haha funny. ur so cute alex!!

monica said...

sadly I am a poor bastard, but I'd love to buy prints :D

Se2 said...

100 us dollars..?? seriously..?

boombap said...

There were an "online shop" were we could buy framed print...can't find the link, does it still exists?

Alex Noriega said...

it's gone... someday I'll sell prints again.

Roman said...

is there a way to spend you some money via paypal? or why don`t you integrate a flattr button under each of your comics.

love your comics...and you got your own style...keep that!
