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 request from Chad Walters: "Ok, this is a concept piece. I am a director of engineering at a software company. The next version of our software (Teamworks) is code named Thunderdome. I would like a drawing that would be special incorporating these two names and possibly the movie theme "Thunderdome"." I didn't want to get cornered into designing a logo, since that's graphic design and not really drawing per se, but I decided to mix vintage Mad Max with the stereotypical IT nerd and came up with this. This was the most challenging request so far. Thanks, Chad!
