Those are amazing. I didn't know you did commissions. I'd love to get one done, but I heard you're too busy and don't do them.

Tim Bye said...

Joe you are an inspiration! These are really stunning - you have a gift sir!. What medium have you used for these?

Joe Bluhm said...

Good to meet you too, Marco. I forsee us hanging out a lot.

Thanks, Tim.

These are done in the same materials that many theme park and retail artists use: Marker and Colored pencil.

More specifically, it's a Faber-Castell PITT brush pen with Prismacolor ART STIXX. I used a foam matte underneath the page to keep the paper texture subdued.

Ryan- I take on commissions from time to time, but rarely with a deadline, as it just hurts the piece. Anyone can contact me for one of these - blog AT joebluhm DOT com.

I had heard that you posted it on here a few days ago, but I had to wait to get it in the mail before I looked at it. I just opened it and, well, simply amazing dude. Its perfect. Thank you once again.

Who is the other commission for?
I like the hard edges on the light and shadows. In on and around the nose, and feet.
