Jim Steranko doing art commissions

I thought this was pretty cool and worth sharing –

Steranko commissionsKurt Busiek posted this on his Facebook fan page today:

Jim Steranko has finally agreed to accept commissions from art collectors in the States and overseas. The subject matter should feature characters identified with the artist, such as Captain America, Nick Fury, The Shadow, Batman, etc. He generally works in two standard formats:

Character portraits rendered in ink on 7×10″ stock which range from $250-750, depending on the complexity of such detail as dramatic lighting/shadows, expressions, minor background elements, etc. Blank comicbook cover portraits range from $400-750. Super-tight pencilled figures with minimal backgrounds on 11×14” Strathmore vellum stock run about $1250. Variations will be quoted individually. Scheduling depends on commercial deadlines, but generally 1-3 weeks. Postage, packing, and insurance are extra. Steranko vintage originals have recently sold for $30-100K, with recreations reselling for $30K, so the investment aspect is significant.

The artist can be contacted at supergraphics@prevue.net

Despite his tiny amount of comics output, Steranko has had a massive influence on comics storytelling. Wish I could afford this.
