Mexican artist Edil Villa has recently uploaded this commissioned piece to DeviantArt.com:
That purple fellow on the left is Kang the Conqueror. For those of you who don't read Marvel Comics, Kang is a time travelling would-be world conqueror who has long bedeviled the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. (Actually, there are a bunch of Kangs from alternate timelines. But that's beside the point.)
I'm pretty sure Booster could take him.

I wasn't sure what I was going to post today until I spotted this Booster Gold (and Skeets!) commission from Mike Henderson on ComicArtFans.com:
The piece is clearly dated 2014, but owner Michael "Off White" White just posted it online earlier this month. Thanks to Michael for sharing this gem!

Herbert Fung has been going to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo for years, and more often than not, he seems to bring back a Booster Gold commission from a superstar artist. It was Adam Hughes in 2013, David Finch in 2014, and Ty Templeton in 2016.
This year, Herb has outdone himself with this amazing Booster Gold commission from Tom Grummett:
Oh, boy, that looks good! I'm gold with envy, Herb!
Grummett's credits are diverse, but I'll always think of him as THE artist for Superboy. After seeing this, I'm inclined to put him near the top of my list of Booster Gold artists as well.

Jonny Michel, who shared some artwork with Booster boosters back in October, got in touch with more commission news.
I recently got engaged to the wonderful lady who purchased me these Chris Giarrusso commissions.
In celebration, I went nuts. I did something I normally never do. I went out and purchased a semi-expensive commission off of eBay.com from one of my favorite DC artists, Ethan Van Sciver.
On top of the amazing sketch card I received in the mail, Ethan also filmed the entire sketching process and commentary and posted it on his Youtube channel! So, not only do I have this beautiful Booster Gold drawing (with an excellent *classic* popped collar and Ethan’s take on Skeets), but I also have a 45 minute video of how he made it! Seriously, how cool is that?
Unfortunately, upon watching the video, I learned the one devastating blow this sketch is to the Booster Gold community. In this video, we learned that Booster Gold ... is one of Ethan Van Sciver's least favorite DC characters ... and I was the goof that asked for the commission.
Please, hold back your screams of shock and terror. I know. It's crazy.
Ethan actually offers a really good reason why this is though. Basically, he hasn’t gotten the chance to get into Booster Gold by drawing and learning about his story. Luckily, by the end of the video, I feel like he was kinda getting into it, especially when he started drawing the collar.
See? The collar is important!
Congratulations on your new commission, Jonny. (And congrats on your engagement, too! I predict many years of happily married commissions in your future.)

I begged The Blot for another peek at his Booster Gold sketchbook, and he finally gave in! Check out these two he picked up at last year's Comicpalooza convention in Houston:
From left to right, that's the work of David Finch and Tony Harris. (Click on either image to see a larger pic in a new window.)
You can see more of The Blot Says' Booster Gold Sketchbook on Flickr.com.
Thanks, Blot. You're a true Booster booster!
