The State of Dave, EBAY Sales, and COMMISSIONS

Hi Everyone. I hope everyone has had a happy holiday season. I'm not going to pretend it's been a good year, because it hasn't. Of course there have been some great things, my son is growing into being such a great and funny kid, I love my wife Denise and I have done a few pieces of art I really like. But the economy is tough, I know for a lot of folks, and I am no exception. Publishers have shyied away from me thinking my work would be priced out of their budget. (More on that in a follow up blog soon) So suffice it to say my work load has been steadily decreasing. Even though I am ready, and willing to do the work.

The little work I do have is just getting us by.

SO...I have, and will continue to, put artwork on Ebay, ( do a search there for "Dorman Original" or "Dorman Art") There is a variety of projects from Magic to Warcraft to Marvel and Star Wars. Now would be the time to go after them if you wanted to own an original piece by me.

I am also taking commissions now. Many of my fans have asked for them but I have hesitated because of my time spent with doing commercial work. Well I have the time now and can work with anyone who decides they would like to have an original painting by me. The prices will be within the $500-$2000 range depending on the size and complexity you want. The subject matter can be anything the client would like. I will ask to be a little creative in my approach but if I'm being asked to do a commission then you are already aware of what I can do. Please email me directly if you are interested in commissioning an original painting from me: We can discuss the specifics of each peace via email to start.

I have also marked the Star Wars Artists proofs for sale with FREE Remarques (a small pencil original drawing right on the print). There is no limit for purchases, one drawing per print. Here's the link to the page:

Thank you all for your continued support thru these hard times. I know a lot of you are having it just as tough as we are. Please take care of yourselves and be well....Dave
