Jessie Van Gyzen
AnimeNEXT was a fun place to meet new people and get commissions. There was a little miscommunication with Jessie . . . I vaguely recall asking for Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist with wrench in hand, in the style of the "We Can Do It!" poster from the Forties. I think it came out well, especially with the top and the bandana.
Ethan Van Sciver
Since Ethan is a "name" talent, I've only gotten head sketches from him . . . both of Green Lanterns, both from 2008.
Last year, I trekked to Dewey's Comic City in Madison, NJ, for Free Comic Book Day. I finally got around to getting the Master from the Doctor Who movie from 1996 sketched for me by Alexia. The only incarnation I'm lacking now is Professor Yana from "Utopia."
I see Emilio at local conventions, but I have only gotten one sketch from him: Darla Deering (aka Miss Thing) from FF. Emilio's webcomic is The Dodgeball Teens. so Darla was suitably posed.
I met Rob at the Fan Expo Canada in 2014. I had a blank-covered Superman #32, and he did a decent Man of Steel for me.
Sean Von Gorman
It's pretty hard to forget the first time I saw Sean. It was at a MoCCA Fest, and he was promoting Secret Adventures of Houdini by escaping from a straitjacket. I don't hit him up often enough, but I'm very satisfied with the results.
P.S. This is my 300th post! Took me eleven years to get here. Here's hoping I can get to 500 by decade's end.
