A secret organisation exists in the comic convention scene. This organisation prides itself on knowing the in’s and out’s of conventions. This piece of information has been gleaned from them and could prove useful to any person wanting to plan their budget for getting sketches at Thought Bubble this year. If you should see anyone wearing a “ConMen” T shirt then you know who they are…

Below is a list of the prices that artists usually charge at such a convention. This is as up-to-date list as there currently is, being only 2 weeks away from the actual convention. Please note, artists have the right to change their prices and we are not liable for any price changes, this is merely a gathering of information beforehand based on what has been said and previous convention prices.
