The last commission I obtained at last month's Boston Comic Con was by Khoi Pham.
Pham is considered one of the 'young guns' at Marvel and is the current penciller on Mighty Avengers. I initially wasn't planning on getting a commission from him but then I saw what he was producing and had to grab one.
As I needed to leave early on the second day, Pham was kind enough to put me at the top of the Sunday list. I needed to leave at noon and he finished the commission at 11:59. I feel bad because I think I rushed him.
I really think this is a great piece. The pose, the flow of the hair and cape, her expression ... it is all fantastic. I can only wonder how mouth-droppingly stunning it would have been if I was able to give him 20 more minutes.
Regardless, I think this is a powerful commission.
Now it's time to start saving for the next Boston Comic Con. There are some big names coming into town and I hope to keep growing the commission collection.
