I Need Some Help With A Gift...

I want to do something nice for my girlfriend for mother's day this year since it will be her first. Since she has gotten into comics she keeps looking at comic book art style family photos, but they are completely cheesy and something that can easily be done in Photoshop. I was hoping to try and get a real comic book artist (she would die if it was Catwoman artist Guillem March) to do a commission of our family as her mother's day gift. I'm thinking a 8x10 size works and I am happy with a sketch, but I would like it to have a comic book themed background (i.e. falling comics, wall of long boxes, trade book shelf). I'm not going to be able to get to a comic book convention this year, and I have never really tried to have a commission done before so any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to try and get this done by the middle of April (still need time to get it framed) so let me know interest, price, or any info that could help. You can email me at

2-20-12 Update:
I haven't gotten any responses yet, but I did get a couple of re-tweets (thank you to those followers of mine who took the time to pass this on), and I did go out on a limb and I emailed Guillem March directly. The email got bounced back to me.

3-21-12 Update:
The awesome Omar Brodrick has tried to reach out to Guillem March and as I was searching around on the internet and stumbled across Guillem March's Art Gallery on and I sent him a message through the site about this. Now the only thing to do is wait and see.

Guillem did get back to me and unfortunately he cannot take any commissions at this time. Bummer. I'll have to find someone else. Let the search begin.
