For those of you attending Emerald City Comicon in March, several Periscope members have recently opened pre-orders for commissions at the show. This means you have a guaranteed spot and can pick your finished pieces up whenever you stop by the table, rather than having to hang around while we juggle commission work with talking to folks at the show. Check out the full list of artists below!
Natalie Nourigat has the entire lowdown on pre-ordering commissions on her blog.
Grace Allison also has a helpful post on her site about commission slots.
Jonathan Case posts his rundown of pricing and options for this season’s commissions right here.
Other studio members are accepting pre-orders directly via email. Get in touch with them via the following channels:
