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.

"the grim reaper driving a bumper car"

"I'd like the grim reaper to be chasing a chubby, scared kid in another bumper car. If possible, the sickle should be pointed at the scared kid, like the reaper wants to touch him with it," requests Elissa Rodgers. I feel like this request has some kind of a story behind it, but I may never know for sure. We all meet our maker someday. Sorry, fat kid, but it looks like it's your time to go. Thanks, Elissa!


  1. One of my favorites so far... which is tough to choose. Haven't we all woken up to feel as if we had been rear-ended by death? Wink Wink Nudge Nudge

  2. Wow... perfect! I love it, thank you!
