I have been getting a lot of notes since Andy from Valiant tweeted about my prints. Glad you guys like them and want them! 

Here are the details. I have permission from Valiant to give you guys anything you want! Interiors or Covers. I have two types of prints. Limited and Unlimited. 

LIMITED PRINTS $20 - These prints come to cons. I offer a 1/1 print with the con name printed on the print. I just make one of them for that show and they become available first at the show. Anything left over, I sell on here or at signings. 

UNLIMITED PRINTS $20 - These can be anything that I have worked on from Valiant. Pretty much order on Demand. Buy more and save! $20 for 1, $40 for 3, $100 for 10 (BEST DEAL). They can be the same print or different prints if you want to go in on them with friends. 

All payments are made through paypal. I send a purchase invoice, and once paid I ship that week via Fedex (You pay $10 shipping in the USA) If you have a different way you prefer shipment, I am okay with that, just let me know. 

Working on a database of my work now. But you can see a lot of it on DA in my gallery. 

Thank you again for your interest in my color work with Valiant. I am very lucky to be working with such great Artists, Writers and Valiant as a whole. 

Cheers,

David
