As I have said before here, while I cannot go to all the big conventions I want to ... at least a good friend of mine can.
I will often ask my friend to act as a mouthpiece for me, talking to creators for me and trying to pry some info out of them. An added bonus is that he is an avid collector of commissions and will show me what he gets.
When he was at the recent NYCC, he had the luck of meeting current Supergirl cover artist Amy Reeder and even got a free commission of Supergirl from her. What a delightful quick sketch. I think Reeder has really settled in nicely and picked up right where Josh Middleton left off.
Now maybe I can convince my friend to give me this commission for my collection!
