Steve Rude Convention Commissions & Appearances

Steve Rude Convention Commissions & Appearances


Marker Commission After much deliberation, Steve has decided to stop taking sketch requests at conventions.  For years we've limited the number of people on the list to 5 and he usually finishes 2 while ignoring people who want a book signed or just want to shake his hand, have their portfolio reviewed, or just talk.  Steve also enjoys walking the floor, meeting other artists, talking with artists he hasn't seen in years, and having the opportunity to conduct painting demonstrations and teach while he's there.

Not wanting to completely close the list, he is able to take a limited number of sketches before a show.   His commissions will no longer be going for $100, though still well below what other artists are charging, they start at $300 for an 11x14 black and white, single figure, Copic marker sketch.  Prices are per figure and love it, guaranteed.


We've added more commission options to the online store to include Trading Cards and India Ink sketches. Limited availability:


 Hosted by Simon Fraser and Mina Sanwald Steve will be talking to us and sharing his approach to painting in an extraordinary 2-hour demonstration. He'll be taking questions during the demo from audience members, as they take notes and draw along with Steve, during this very special Dare2Draw session.
