Tristan Jones
I'm a comic book writerand illustrator from Melbourne, Australia, who was fortunate enough to cut his teeth on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Mirage Studios and did some work with Titan in the UK on their Turtles comics as well. If you're interested, just hit or, type "tristan jones" into the search bar and Robert's your father's brother! I've also written and drawn the TMNT for IDW since, and was a regular artist and bit-part writer on the Ghostbusters comics. I've also filled in on Hoax Hunters as an interior and cover artist, and just wrapped up work on IDW's Silent Hill comics.

You can also find me on:

It's no secret that I'm drawing lots these days. Everyone here has been a really great support for a really long time now, and the love everyone's shown Aliens has been genuinely overwhelming, and since Aliens, I've been getting asked a lot more about commissions.

I'm not a super fast artist. Some things I can crank out, others not so much. Aliens falls hard into the not so much, and I'm working pretty hard to make sure it's on the "crank out" end of "not so much", and because of the nature of freelancing, work always comes before private commissions -- hence why some have taken so long (and yes, I'm still getting around to those ones too, your patience has been beyond appreciated). Sometimes too, I just don't feel like drawing Wolverine or Galactus, and I'm not going to work on something I don't want to or feel I have to because it'll look like garbage and that does both the commissioner and I a disservice. Yes, I know full well that some of you have been waiting a long time, but I’ve been on something of a career trajectory that’s just gotten busier and busier as things go on. It’s what happens in these fields of work.

The other thing is, I don't like taking money up front, because that compounds the pressure of what I do already (and repeatedly asking adds to that -- though everyone has generally been polite about it -- I have a long memory, so I'm not going to forget your piece; I DO like drawing them and I DO like money). Deposits, sometimes, sure, but the problem with not wanting money or payment up front is that I've had a LOT of people suddenly tell me they can't pay the agreed price, or drag it out, or whatever. It's annoying and becoming too frequent. The people who I've currently got on my list are great and (for the most part) been accommodating. There've been other instances where I've given the money back, because they're just not worth the stress.

That said, this Oz Comic Con will probably be the last time for a long time I'll be taking commissions, and I won't be doing them there at the show. I've got a big arse Alien Queen I need to do that'll take the whole weekend I'm pretty sure (given the panels and trading), so I'm not really going to be able to squeeze much else in. That said, if there IS anyone that wants something done desperately, or has been after a commission for a while and can't make the show, direct message me here and we can see if we can sort something out. Once I'm done with the ones on the current list (which is about ten or so people) and have everything out, that'll be it for a long while while I focus on work, but as I said, I'm willing to add a small handful to the "to-do" pile to a patient few. The way I’ll be working things into the future is I’ll just be drawing what I want to draw as warm-ups every now and then, and if it’s available, it’ll absolutely be up for grabs. No pressure, first in best dressed type thing.

Thanks for hearing me out, thanks for being patient, and thanks most of all for being supportive! See you (maybe) on the weekend for Oz Comic-Con!

FYI: If it's Clayface, you may jump spots in the queue...

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
