Hey everyone, thanks for continuing to drop by and leave wonderful comments and critiques...they're all appreciated! I also apologize for not getting back to those of you who have been inquiring about commissions over the last few months... I'm currently working as a storyboard artist on an animated series for the CBC here in Canada and that is taking up the vast majority of my time. I have a few commissions at the moment that I've been struggling to finish up so because of this, I don't think it's fair to anyone to try and take on any more projects and not be able to devote all of my attention to them.
So in a nutshell, what does this mean? Well, no more commissions for a while. This doesn't mean that I won't be creating any more artwork...I'm just going to be doing my own stuff and focusing on my pinup work in my own time.
So please continue to drop by and say hello! Also be sure to stop by my site at dominicmarco.com

Cheers,
Dom

Greetings from San Diego....is how wish I could start this journal entry, but unfortunately, I'm not there...AGAIN. But it looks like a lot of fun this year, and if you're able to make it, you should stop by IDW's booth and see Craig Yoe, Dean Yeagle and a bevy of other top pin-up artists at the signing for "Dan DeCarlo's Jetta". - IDW booth #2643 sunday july 25 2:00-3:00 pm.
Lessee, what else?  Oh yeah, I'm back in school studying 3D Animation. This is why you haven't seen a lot of new work from me lately as school takes up about 90% of my free time. I'm also in class until about 7pm every day so I've been horrible for keeping up with my email. So if you've written and I haven't responded, please just shoot me another email because it's probably been buried between the gobs of spam, offers from Tiger Direct and other junk that continuously fills my inbox.
I'm also trying to figure out what to do about my prints, because the place that normally printed my work for me has shut down. I'm going to look into online options, but this will mean that the prints won't be signed.  The benefit to this however, is that you won't have to deal with CanadaPost.  I don't like to publicly call out businesses, but their service has been total shit so far.  On average, it now takes about 25-35 days for people to receive their packages from me.  So like I said already, I think I'm going to go with another service for the prints, which can hopefully offer better service, better quality prints, and faster delivery.
Anyway, I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!

Cheers!

Hi all,
Just a quick note to let you all know that I'm selling the original artwork for my Wonderland image (as well as a full color print of it) on eBay so if you are a collector or fan, you may wish to check it out:
cgi.ebay.com/Wonderland-Artwor…

I've also partnered up with a cool local printshop so I now have the means to offer 11"x17" full colour, signed prints of all of my work so if there's something that you've had your eye on for a while and would like to have a physical copy of it, contact me at dominic@dominicmarco.com to place an order.  All prints are $30 US with free shipping and handling anywhere in the US or Canada.

Cheers!

I just wanted to take a moment to address this issue that's been occuring with the mail delivery service lately.  A few of you have written to inform me that your artwork has been taking an extremely long time to arrive and for that, I am truly sorry. While some of you have been lucky enough to receive the artwork several days after it was sent, for some it has been weeks and I honestly don't know what the problem was with the postal service (I live in a city so there's no excuse for it to have to travel by boat or pack animal to the airport).  So far, those of you affected have been incredibly patient (even though you've had every right to be completely pissed) and if the problem continues, I will do what I can to make it up to you with free prints, sketches etc.

Again, I'm very sorry for the problems as of late and I really hope that things will turn around in the upcoming weeks.

Dominic

Hi guys and gals,
I apologize for things being kind of slow and quiet around here lately.  I've been really busy as of late, and for those of you still waiting on your commissions, I'm finishing them this week so I apologize for any delays. As I've already mentioned to a few of you, I broke my foot a couple of weeks ago, and even though I don't actually draw with my feet, though I may look somewhat simian, it still managed to waylay me for a few days.  On the positive side, these delays were also caused by a couple of high-profile gigs that I landed over the last 2 weeks, so the bonus for you is that the commissions will be worth even more now :)  The perpetually cool Craig Yoe asked me to contribute to his latest book which will feature prominent 'good girl' artists such as Dean Yeagle and Bruce Timm and their versions of Dan DeCarlo's 'Jetta of the 21st Century'(for those of you unfamiliar with Mr. DeCarlo, he gave the defining look that we all know and love to Archie and the gang of Riverdale High). This was a cool project to be a part of and I can't wait to see the other versions of Jetta. As soon as I get the go-ahead, I'll post my version here.  I've also worked on a couple of covers for Hack/Slash with Tim Seeley :iconcoltnoble: which has been a dream job of mine for a while now. I noticed in the CBR forums, that a few of you have been requesting a Hack/Slash cover from me as well, so as soon as I have a few spare moments, I'll finish up the one that I was working on a few months ago.
And finally, thanks to the ever-generous, multi-talented, nicest-guy-on-earth... Dean Yeagle, I'll be doing my 'audition' comics for Playboy later this week so if all goes well with that, you'll be seeing my scantily clad pinups alongside scantily clad pinups.

Well, I've finally gone Web 2.0, and I'm playing catch up with just about everything you might find in the average issue of Wired.  I have a new website up and running (www.dominicmarco.com) and I didn't stop there...no sir! I'm also twittering (dominic_marco), MySpace-ing (myspace.com/dominicmarco) and Facebook-ing (just search for me and you'll see the familiar avatar).  So if you're looking to get in touch with me for commissions or just to say hi, I've made it good and easy to be tracked down now.  
I should also point out that the Limited Edition prints that I'm selling are still available and I now have a dedicated store in which to purchase them, making things easy-peazy.

See that 'Wonderland' image on my front page?  Well if you like it, or my work in general, and would like to own a poster-sized (18.5 x 29 inches), limited edition, signed and numbered copy of it, well wait no more!  This is a limited run of 200 copies and I'll be selling them for $35 US each.  As a special bonus, I'll include a free 8.5 x 11 inch sketch to the first 10 orders, and to 10 randomly drawn orders after that.  As you probably already know, but I'll reiterate anyway, this is a limited run of this print and it won't be made available to buy after this run is ended.

To place an order, please contact me at dominic@dominicmarco.com and I'll send you the payment details.

Commissions
I'm now offering several options for commissions so hopefully you'll be able to find one that suits your needs, pocket book, frame, header etc. :)

Sketch $40
Yep, I'm offering sketches :D These are 8.5x11 card stock sketches of whatever character you want (single character from the thighs up with a little stylized background) and when the image is ready, I'll ship it to you anywhere in the US or Canada free of charge. For an example of this type of sketch, please see the Lara Croft sketch in my gallery.

Finished Line Art $80
This is an 11x17 black and white inked drawing of a single character with a minimal background

Full Colour Single Character Image* $200
This is an 11x17 single character image with a background. If you require something more complex, just let me know and I'll give you a quote for the price.
* You get the original line art + a hi-res digital PSD of the image

Full Colour Single Character Image (Print)* $220
This is an 11x17 single character image with a background. If you require something more complex, just let me know and I'll give you a quote for the price.
* You get the original line art, an 8.5x11 colour print and a hi-res digital PSD of the image


All payments are to be made by Paypal...unfortunately, I've had to change my old policy of no payment upfront because of a few bad apples, so now payment must be made upfront. As you can see from the amount of commission work I do, I've proven that I'm reliable about getting the work done.  Once you place the order, I'll then sketch out a design for your image and send you a low-res jpeg of it for your approval. I'll then move on to the colouring stage and when it's ready, I'll send you a jpeg of the fully coloured image and you can then suggest any changes to the colours. When everything is cool, I'll then send you the hi-res copy.
Of course, sketches are a bit different. I'll send you a jpeg of the image when it's ready and I'll mail out the sketch at the same time.

As many of you have already noticed, I've signed with CILM (www.cilm.com) and they're responsible for licensing my artwork for PSP/Tube groups. If you're a fan of my work and love to create tube art, please visit them and pick up the rights to my work. Creating this art is my full time career and I truly appreciate your support. You can also make suggestions here as to what sort of images you'd like to see in future sets from me on CILM (or if there are any images in my gallery that you'd like to see included in a set)

Cheers!

I've been getting a lot of 'commercial-big-corporate-style' work lately...hence the lack of submissions because I can't show any of it until they premiere officially, but if you like what I do, then keep your eyes peeled for the latest CD's from Mr. P!nk, Dave202, and Lady Tom.  
I also have quite a few upcoming covers for Zenescope that will hopefully hit the internets soon thereby allowing me to post them here.  There is one by Ebas that has already debuted online, but I'm really not that pleased with how it turned out, so I haven't posted it yet. To be honest, I just didn't have enough time to do it justice so if you read this E, sorry and I'd really like to have a crack at doing another one so that I can do it right!  However, the next three covers turned out great so I can't wait to show them off.

All payments are to be made by Paypal, but not up front...first I send you the penciled version of the image and you can suggest any changes. Once the design has been approved by you, you then send me the full payment and I'll then move on to the colouring stage. I'll then send you a jpeg of the fully coloured image and you can then suggest any changes to the colours. When everything is cool, I'll then send you the hi-res copy.
Of course, sketches are a bit different. Payments must be up front and if you wish to order a sketch, please specify the character you want (if there's a specific version, please let me know) and whether you want it front on, or looking back over the shoulder. I'll send you a jpeg of the image when it's ready and I'll mail out the sketch at the same time.
