New Art and Commissions in the OOSA store

TOME (final) T.Cypress_EngineAssassin I've added some new work from Toby Cypress to the OOSA store. The painting is Toby's contribution to 44FLOOD's book TOME. The other piece is from the VILLAINS and ASSASSINS group show at the Strychnin Gallery in Berlin on August 10th (and includes an "EPIC" edition print of the image).

I've also made a place in the store where you can order commissions from the OOSA artists. You can see whose list is open and what their rates are, as well as samples of commissions they've done in the past. Check it out:

News, Paul Maybury, SALE!

Paul Maybury art and commission sale

Did you all catch the news out of the New York Comic Con that Paul Maybury will be working on Catalyst Comix with Joe Casey for Dark Horse?! Well, between that, Paul's work on David Lloyd's Aces Weekly, and his other project, Reign, with Christ Roberson for Image, Paul is going to be extremely busy for the next year or so. To celebrate the last of his free time for the foreseeable future and to reward those who were fans of his work before he went "big time", Paul is putting on a sale. Half off all of his existing work and $50 commissions!

I've already marked down the prices on Paul's work in the OOSA store. If you don't see what you're looking for, just ask about it. Paul has hundreds of pages that aren't listed, but that are still for sale. Artwork from DOGS of Mars, Aqua Leung, Marvel's Strange Tales, the Popgun anthology, the Comic Book Tattoo  anthology, and a bunch of others. So if you want a specific page or image, just shoot me an email and I'll see if it's still available.

For the commissions, it's $50 for a single character done in ink on 8x5 inch paper, plus $5 to ship it (maybe more outside of the US). Again, just send me an email with your request and Paul will get right on it. This is a limited time offer, though, only good until the end of October. After that, Paul will not take any more commissions for a while due to his heavy work load. So if you want one, better take advantage of this opportunity.

Alexis Ziritt, News, SALE!

Alexis Ziritt Commissions

Alexis Ziritt is gearing up for his appearance at the Cincinnati Comic Expo later this month so he is offering a special commission rate to help him make the trip.

If you want to take advantage of this great deal, just get in touch with either me, or Alexis directly, and we'll get you set up.

Toby Cypress Commissions and Epic Edition Prints

Hey folks! It's been a while since I've made an update, but there has been a lot happening behind-the-scenes so look for much more activity here in the next few weeks. First up, though, Toby Cypress is going to take on some commissions during the month of August. But these aren't going to be your typical "Draw me (fill in the blank)". Toby is not interested in doing licensed characters. Instead, he’s looking to create something unique based off of your interests. You would give Toby a list of specific things you like (characters, movies, songs, paintings, etc) and adjectives or feelings you want the commission to portray (dark, funny, sexy, kick-ass, etc.). Toby will incorporate these elements into the piece, but create something totally original.  Prices are as follows (shipping not included):

11x17 inked pieces for $150 11x17 paintings for $300 (a $100 deposit is due up front for the paintings)

If you're interested in getting a commission or have questions about the process, feel free to email me.

Second, Toby is going to be releasing some very limited "EPIC" edition prints through the OOSA store on August 1st. Click on the pictures to purchase them.

"Engine Assassin" Giclee print on watercolor paper 18x24 inches Limited Edition of 10 with serialized holographic stamp and matching signed/numbered COA.

"Thunder Alley" Giclee print on watercolor paper 13x26 inches Limited Edition of 10 with serialized holographic stamp and matching signed/numbered COA.

A big week at OOSA: Sales and a new artist!

There is a lot going on at Out of Step Arts this week. Let's break it down. First thing, PAUL MAYBURY is going to be having a huge sale starting on Friday. Not only is he adding new art to the OOSA store, but he's also listing all of his art half off!!! And if that's not enough, he'll also be offering single character commissions for only $50.  The sale won't last for long, though. Just 2 weeks. Paul has had a run of bad luck with machines lately and needs to cover some expenses. So, look for the price changes to happen on Friday and act fast! I have a feeling things will sell out quickly.

Speaking of price changes, ALEXIS ZIRITT has reduced his commission prices to $60 for 11x17 inked pieces and $100 for 11x17 watercolor pieces. If you were waiting for a reason to get something from him, there it is. Expect to see some new art from Alexis in the store soon, as well.

TOBY CYPRESS has just added some copies of his graphic novel Rodd Racer in the store for just $5 (plus $3 for shipping)! These are the out-of-print and hard to find PunkRock Jazz Publishing versions with the  B/W pages. Each copy comes with an original sketch by Toby in it, too.

And finally, we're adding a new artist to the OOSA crew!!! Who is it, you ask? Well, our good friends at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find are going to help us make the announcement on their Heroes Con blog this week, so be sure you are either on their mailing list, or are following them on Twitter or Facebook so you are one of the first to know.

Paul Maybury art for sale and commissions

Paul has added a bunch of art to the OOSA store, so go on over and take a look.  If you don't see exactly what you want, you have a couple of choices:

  1. If you are looking for a specific page or image, email me and ask about it.  If it's available, we can probably work something out.
  2. Get a commission.

That's right, Paul is open for commissions!  Black and white brush and ink pieces with one character is $80. It's an additional $50 per character.  A full 11x17 commission (includes background and digital colors) is $300. Now if you want something more elaborate, such a group shot or larger sized piece, those commissions will be arranged and priced on a case-by-case basis.

And as always, please take some time to check out the available art from the other OOSA artists. Part of the purpose of the collective is to expose fans of one artist to other artists' work. Everyone here has their own distinct style, but more than likely, if you dig Paul's art, you're going to like the other guys' as well.

A few things about art purchases

First of all, I wanted to let you know that I have updated the store to include new art by Andrew MacLean and Alexis Ziritt. It's great stuff available at even better prices, so please go take a look.  While your there, take a look at Toby Cypress' and Greg Ruth's work, too. Alright, now lets talk about some other things.

Commissions Currently, Alexis and Andrew are open for commissions.

  • Andrew is asking $50 for 11 x 14 inked single characters and $75 for 11 x 17 inked pieces with background or more than one character.
  • Alexis is asking $80 for 11 x 17 inked pieces and $130 for 11 x 17 watercolor pieces.
  • If you want something more complex from either artists, prices can be negotiated on an individual basis.

Payments Did you know that you can make payments on a lot of what we have in the store?  It's true! If you're eyeing something, but don't have the cash in hand, just email me and we'll see what we can work out.

Looking for something specific? Do you want a certain page/panel from one of these guys, but don't see it in the store? Just ask me about it. I'm happy to contact the artist to see if it's available. I've helped make quite a few sales this way, in fact.

The Out of Step Arts store is not supposed to be just a storefront; it's meant to be an interactive way to buy what you want from the OOSA artists.  Have a question? Ask me. Need something? Tell me what you're looking for.  I'm here to help.
