Ha! I just want to say, this is a great idea! My FH is also absolutely crazy about comics. I can just hear his voice now going, “whoa, that’s AWESOME!”

sunflwra,

I love your final outcome for your comic book.  How did you do it?  My brother who passed away last year always wanted my fiance and i to have a Comic book theme wedding.  I would love to take his idea with a comic book with my fiance and i pictures on it and dedicate it to my brother.  Can you please assist.  Thank you in advance.

Just another resource for anyone interested in custom art – http://www.deviantart.com would be a good place to look. There are a bajillion freelance artists there.  Find one you like and ask if they do commissions.. 🙂

I really love this idea since my fiance is crazy into comics!  I’ve tried google to find someone to do it, but no luck.  Do you mind sharing the artist’s info??

The Etsy Alchemy section could be a good place to find someone to do this for you!

It turned out great, and is a great idea! Could you share your artist’s information? I want to do something very similar as a wedding gift for my fiance. Thanks so much!

I understand this is an older topic, but I thought I’d throw in my two cents anyway.

My name is Jules Rivera and I am a freelance comic illustrator.  I’ve also done the whole wedding thing (got married back in 2006) so I understand the value of getting as much information in one place as possible concerning wedding plans.

I thought I’d give you all my perspective as a freelance illustrator myself.  Deviant art is okay for scouting around for possible artists, but there are literally millions of artists on there and it can be hard to choose who’s right for you.  Posting an ad on Craig’s List might also work for you, as you’ll get emails from potential artists and how well they form their cover letters will let you know how professional they are.  iFreelance.com and guru.com are also a decent places to put ads for just this such thing. 

The important thing is to get as much information about this artist as you can.  What is their page rate?  How fast can they turn around your piece?  What is their availability in the time leading up to your wedding date?  Is their art style what you’re looking for?  Have they done this sort of work before?  What size image are they able to put out for you (In case you want to request a poster to be framed, you might want to specify the exact size you need for print)?

I hope this information helps.  I am also connected to a community of artists so if any of you have any questions about how to get something similar done with custom, radiant results, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Plus, my portfolio is available at JulesRivera.com if you’d like to take a look at any of my work.  Thanks all for reading.
