My name is Ven Gethenian. I make title cards for two fine producers from Channel Awesome. This is where I pimp them.
First, my BFF Kyle "Oancitizen" Kallgren. He produces a review show called Brows Held High
, in which he focuses on arthouse films both recent and retro. His videos can be viewed on his Blip account here
or on ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com here
Second, my little brother Smarty, whose show The Machinimist
is featured on Blistered Thumbs, here
. This show, as well as other exploits and shenanigans, can also be seen on his website, Teh Smarty Productions
...I do them. Usually. My ability to accept commissioned art changes with my schedule, which changes... a lot. So contact me (see how below!) if you want something done.Prices:
~$10 per character for a pencil drawings. Example: [link]
~$12 per character hand-drawn with "touches" of color. Example: [link]
~$18 for "stylized" musician portraits with lettering and stage detail. Examples: [link]
(Please provide reference photo/video links and what 1-3 words you want with the stage detail, if any)
~$25 per character with full color. Example: [link]
I am not currently accepting deals for full-time title card gigs, but I can design a title card for your show with full colored art, logo, and a generic background which you can add titles and text to for each new episode. Prices will range depending on the complexity of the work to be done, but will generally run in the $25-$30 range.
All prices are negotiable. What I won't draw:
~Children in sexual situations
~18+ depictions involving people who have asked or suggested any discomfort with the idea of being portrayed in such a manner. I have the final word on who I judge to qualify under this rule and unless you can provide a direct communication with the intended subject giving permission for it to be done, my word is final.
All other requests "ideologically sensitive" content will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
By default, I WILL NOT give out the names of anyone who commissions graphic material.HOW TO CONTACT ME!
The best way to get in touch with me is by E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I check my E-mail multiple times daily and will usually reply within 12 hours, if not much sooner. If you do not hear from me, message me here and tell me you've sent an E-mail -- I'm not aware of any specific domains getting filtered as spam by my E-mail but personal e-mails have been sent to the spam folder in the past.
You can also direct-message me on Twitter at @Gethenian.
