Bonus Kilroy: Dracula

One of the wonderful bonuses that come when Dan sends me art for a bunch of strips are the "bonus" shots he's includes--generally they are fully realized work-ups for a particular panel, which he then whittles down for use in the specific panel.

I absolutely love seeing this stuff, and we joke(?) that all these extra pieces will eventually be seen in the giant hardcover Ace Kilroy coffee table book.

And no, I'm not gonna say what this shot means...

Original Sunday Art

Another panel of Dan's original art from yesterday's Color Sunday. I love the staging of this panel, how Dan's got three different elements for the viewer to look at but they're all crystal clear and distinctive. That Nazi sure is mad!

Original Ace Kilroy Commissions by Dan O'Connor

Now is a good a time as any to mention that my co-creator and partner-in-crime Dan O'Connor is available for Ace Kilroy-centric commissions. I've been thrilled to show off Dan's amazing work every day in the strip and here on the blog, and I know many of you are as impressed as I am.

Here are the basic rates for an original Ace Kilroy commission by Dan:

One character pencil sketch--$25.00 ppd
One character pencil and ink sketch--$50.00
Two characters pencil sketch--$75.00
Two characters pencil and ink sketch--$100.00 ppd.

SPECIAL BONUS: Anyone who hires Dan to produce an Ace Kilroy original is automatically made a member of Ace's Allies, with all the benefits that entails!

If you're interested in commissioning Dan, you can email him directly here. And tell 'em Ace sent you!

Bonus Kilroy: Into The Woods

Occasionally, Dan will send me a bonus piece of artwork related to a particular panel from the strip. Sometimes, he goes all out and sends me what I consider to be a piece of artwork so good, so complete, that I curse that so little of it will be seen in the final strip.

This is one of those pieces, a shot of Ace and Dracula in the woods, so fully realized that I thought it deserved to be highlighted here on the blog. Click the image to see a bigger version, and marvel at it like I did!

I love this "pin-up" of Dracula Dan sent me today. If you find yourself in the woods with this guy, turn the other way!
