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.

Big Bruiser

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.


  1. ummmm....what do you mean "no hardcore porn"?

  2. Dshanya... I think he means NO drawings of any naked body parts in motion of any sort.

    His mom

  3. Just ordered mine. Female busty cyclops on a Unicorn!

  4. can you draw my cat, Hootie? Here's a link to some pictures of him.

    If so, I'll make my official request with payment.

    Also, I'll pay a little more if I can have the original, signed print.

  5. Please make all requests in the field above the PayPal button at the time of purchase (so I can keep a record of them, in order of received).

    I will gladly mail the drawing to any who request it, but there are some things to keep in mind...

    --Sometimes the scanner is too small for the drawing so I have to trim the paper to get it to fit (such is the case with Request #1).

    --The primary purpose of this site is to force me to draw anything your heart desires. Any order will receive a larger digital version of the image I post here I don't really want to turn it into a mail-order business (unless demand is so big that I can make this my full-time job). If the drawing costs $5 and I have to buy a tube and postage to mail it to you in a pristine manner, then I'm only making about $2.50 off the drawing. Considering they take me about 30 min to more than an hour to draw and scan, that's not enough to make it worth my while to start processing every order this way.

    Maybe I can mail the originals for anyone that orders two or more drawings? That would certainly make it worth my while.

    What do you folks think?
