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 superhero called Bananaman" there used to be this superhero cartoon from the UK called Bananaman. Seems like I remember it being a Danger Mouse spin-off, but I could be wrong. Melissa Wile requested a Bananaman drawing, but I wasn't 100% sure if she wanted the obscure cartoon character or if she just wanted me to create a banana-themed superhero. I opted to do a mild re-design on the original character, updating him from an exaggerated cartoon into something the slightest bit more modern and gritty. Thanks, Melissa!

  1. I think that the most modern incarnation of 'banana man' is creationism evangelist Ray Comfort...
