You Take Requests? For What Exactly?

Here's how it works...You give me five bucks, you tell me what to draw, and I draw it. I'll email you the image and then I'll post it here for everyone to see (I offer no guarantees on quality). Everyone wins!

Three things you can't request--Hardcore porn. The materials/media used. Your money back.

I will reject money for any logo requests (personal or corporate), so please don't send them. I have friends that are graphic designers, and that is their job--I'm just a cartoonist.

This is for fun and funds, so the quality of the drawing will depend based on my interest in the subject matter, the approach I decide to take, and available materials. Please don't cheat the system, by asking me to draw 100 different likenesses in one drawing for $5. I'll probably just send your money back. All requests will be posted on the site as I get to them (please keep in mind that I do have a full-time job). Due to shipping costs, I will only mail out the original art to folks who have made more than two requests. Please keep in mind that due to the size of the scanner, some of the pieces are folded or trimmed. I retain the full rights to any of the art I create, but if you want to use it for something, just ask me.

"A busty female cyclops riding a unicorn."

It's appropriate that my first request is from Alamo Drafthouse and Fantastic Fest founder Tim League. The whole reason I started this blog was to raise enough money to fund my yearly trip to the Best Film Festival Known to Man--Fantastic Fest. Tim asked for "a busty female cyclops riding a unicorn" and that's exactly what he got. I'm suddenly open-minded to any cyclopian suitors now, btw. Thanks, Tim!

This is a sketch that I did in red ballpoint pen while waiting for class to let out, back in 2006. It reminds me a little bit of Marvel's Absorbing Man, but that wasn't necessarily the intent. I've also been told it looks like Olympic gold medalist/pro wrestler Kurt Angle. Anyway, I like it, and I needed something to kick this party off. WHOOO! Party officially kicked off.
