Fan Expo 2011: Over. Amazing. Tiring. Crowded. Did I say tiring? And they want to add extra hours for next year!

I'm thinking about having a RED BULL intravenous drip right at my table next August; it could improve the speed of my sketching. :P

I'm now open to taking on commissioned work.  Established characters or characters from your twisted minds - I'm open to all of it!  

An original piece of artwork makes a great gift for many occasions and adds that personal touch to birthdays, anniversaries, and the upcoming Christmas and holiday season.

Peruse my gallery to see the level of artwork I promise to deliver.

For those interested, please contact me at gtdelacosta@gmail.com for more info.

Hey, deviantArt, remember me?  Can we still be friends?

I realize that I haven't updated my gallery in a while and whenever I did get around to it, it was quite sporadic.  Now that I've graduated from my comic book illustration course and can officially call myself "a starving artist", I find that I now have more time on my hands.  So there's no excuse to ignore you anymore deviantArt!  I've made myself a promise to update my sketchblog gerarddelacosta.blogspot.com/ more frequently (which means producing more art -- I'm trying to kick my own ass into gear!), and I'll make that same promise to you deviantArt!

C'mon, don't be mad.  At least look at me while I'm talking to you.
