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.)

One of the things I enjoy most about this blog is being contacted by other people who love Booster Gold and want to share their passion. Monday's cosplay pic was a good example of that. And today, I have another.

My girlfriend recently bought me a Booster Gold commission drawn by the artist Chris Giarrusso. He is famous for his work on G-Man and Mini Marvels. I'm a big fan of original art and his trading card sketches are super affordable between my girlfriend and I. She actually kept it a secret that she had bought one for me and surprised me with it!
That's a great story, Jonny. Your girlfriend sounds like a keeper!
Keep up the great submissions, people.
