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.

"Klaus Kinski with a ginormous head"

Gumz got really specific and decided he wanted, no, NEEDED, Kinski as he appeared in the film Fitzcarraldo. I've never seen it. I really only watch movies with punchy robots turning into punchy cars and punching each other. Thanks, Blakgumz!


  1. PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is totally badass John!!!!

    this one is for my robot love partner Laura Android, who is obsessed with Kinski & Herzog...she would love to frame it if you can part with the original!??? We can pick it up to save you shipping costs if you're cool with that?

    Everyone should google Klaus Kinski just to see how much you nailed this one! Excellent work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I showed this to Klaus and he started screaming, "Aber Worter - Worter sind nichtgenug!!"

    TRANSLATION: But words - words are not enough!

  3. FUN FACT #1: Klaus Kinski is Nastassja Kinski's father!

    FUN FACT #2: Klaus Kinski was diagnosed with Schizophrenia in his youth!

    FUN FACT #3: Klaus Kinski is cool!
