San Diego Comic-Con 2010 Commissions

Gray Hulk. 2010. Watercolor on paper, 9 x 12".

Here's another commission from San Diego. I love drawing the Hulk, but I always forget how to draw his face. Luckily, I had my trusty iPad next to me with all the artwork from Mythos: Hulk. My art dealer said that was cheating. So be it!

Fan Expo is almost here, so I'll have a detailed schedule of my appearances next week. There are some cool things planned, including a lecture and a sketching duel. If I can get my act together, I hope to tape the lecture and present a version of it in a future post.

In other news, the world has ended. The Mayans said 2012, but they were off by 2 years — I have joined twitter: @PaoloMRivera. I don't plan to use it on a regular basis, but I wanted to secure my name before someone else did (PaoloRivera was already taken). Aside from that, I just want to use it as another promotional tool for the blog, which will remain my primary focus.

Speaking of this here blog, I've recently given it a face lift. The previous template felt a little claustrophobic, and this one had more custom options. For those of you using an RSS feed, you shouldn't notice any difference, but I hope it's more welcoming to new readers.

Have a great weekend!


  1. looking forward to seeing the lecture video if it does make it on here. I had to give my blog a facelift too once the template designer came out.

    love the commissions too! this november I'll be selling artwork at a con for the first time and I'm a little nervous any advice on doing commissions and selling one's stuff in general?

  2. Hmmm... it basically comes down to trial and error. The monetary value of your work is no more than someone is willing to pay for it, so finding that price point can be difficult. I'd say have a range of options so people can choose how much money they want to spend. Other than that, keep track of your time and money, so you can gauge your success and plan for next time.

  3. My son is the proud owner of this commission, thanks again!!

  4. It was my pleasure, Jonathan. Thanks for the commission.
