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 centaur that has the torso and face of patrick swayze"

Steph Beasley was very specific, "But I want it to be the Patrick Swayze from the SNL skit where he is auditioning to be a Chippendale's dancer." Your (bizarre) wish is my command. I like his hair. Thanks, Steph!


  1. This one is my favorite so far!

  2. This makes me very happy. If I give you some more money will you shade the body of the Swayzaur and then send me a print? I want to mount him on my wall....

    And yes, his hair quite feathery, just as it should be. Well played.

  3. I suppose not that uncommon of a request:

  4. Cliff! You found my inspiration. I had seen that in a book of tattoos and always regretted not making a copy of it because I thought it was the most hilarious thing of all time, which is why I requested this sketch. Kick ass!

  5. this just could not be more amazing- great job John- and great suggestion Steph- its soo good you made me running man in my apartment
