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.

Saturday Morning Update

Some of you have asked about getting the original artwork mailed to you. That's cool, except I need things to stay cost-effective, so I've come up with this--anyone that orders more than two drawings from me can request the original art, with no shipping charge. Just note it when you place the order. Please keep in mind that due to the size of the scanner, some of the original pieces are trimmed to fit, or folded to fit. Few of them make it into the scanner in pristine condition...

The next 10 requests are from...
#12 Toni Taylor-Salisbury
#13 Chad Walters
#14 Chris Clark
#15 Toni Taylor-Salisbury
#16 Justin Ishmael
#17 Mark Roma
#18 Brandon Buck
#19 J.C. DeLeon
#20 Megan Hagins
#21 Katie Slaughter
#22 Dshanya Reese

I will try and tackle this list tomorrow, but I may only get halfway through it before I have to go to work. Thank you all for making this so much fun, and keep on spreading the word!


  1. I've got a lot of white walls.

  2. Can you make the Klaus Kinski drawing resemble his character Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald from Fitzcarraldo? Should make it easier than most of Kinski's looks as it is iconic and bizarre (messy hair, white suit, black tie).


  3. Or you can make it Kinski from Aguirre Wrath of God if you like his look there better...more monty python-ish.
