It’s technically WonderCon Wednesday, but let’s be honest – we’ve had WonderCon news just about every day lately, so let’s just call it WonderCon month. In today’s WonderPost, we’ve got lots of updates for you, including lots of pre-convention commissions lists, an art print bundle that benefits autism research, exclusives, prints, and so much more.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- Looking for some awesome original art to commission for WonderCon? Bob Q, best known for his work on Ms. Marvel and James Bond, has you covered, as he’s now opened his WonderCon pre-convention commissions list. Grab your spot today — you won’t regret it.
Oh also: if you’re going to #wondercon I’m taking pre-show commissions.
Maybe you want one?

- Illustrator Jenna Gray also opened her pre-convention list for WonderCon, and she’s offering slots for pieces with up to five characters in either marker and pen or pencil on Bristol Board. Contact her on tumblr to get on her list.
- WonderCon is all about the art (and rightfully so) – so we love how many artists offer pre-commissions lists. Artist Chandler Ford is also opening her pre-commission list, with prices starting at $80. Find more information on her Instagram.
- Spirited Away‘s No Face has never looked happier (or cuter) than in this adorable mini portrait from JP Neang. You can score it only at WonderCon.
- Neang is bringing along a few more mini originals to the convention, including this “New Moon” piece and “Lay Down Sleven“.
- This year, artist Paola Olivares has created a very special WonderCon exclusive. You can stop by Artist Alley B-36 to pick up “Little Genius”, a limited edition 4×6 print bundle featuring influential figures throughout history, with art works from 15 artists. For every print bundle sold, all proceeds will go to the charity Organization for Autism Research. So stop by and support a great cause!
- After you pick up Toynami’s cool Macross VF-1S Super Valkyrie exclusive ($65, limited to 100 pieces) which is debuting at the convention, you can take it over to Jamie Sullivan’s booth (Artist Alley C-12) to get it signed. He’ll also have prints of the original box art he created available at his booth.
- That’s not all Sullivan is bringing, though. He’ll also have his own Transformers exclusive for the show, which he showed a sneak peek of on Instagram.
- Artist Ethan Castillo showed off a custom cover for The Amazing Spider-Man he’ll have on hand at WonderCon.
Still need to figure out a background for this Spidey cover for @WonderCon. I referenced the @insomniacgames #SpiderManPS4 game. Colored with @copicmarker. #SpiderMan #Copic #CopicMarkers pic.twitter.com/wDjiDvVrtM
