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.

Wednesday Night Site Update

"WAUGH-WAUGH-WAUGH!" This is an old(ish) drawing of Batman's umbrella-toting nemesis The Penguin. Nobody requested it, but I didn't want to go a full day without an update. First of all, the response to this blog has been truly overwhelming. I am about halfway to my goal, which is tremendous considering the site has only been live for two days. I have little doubt at this point that I will make it to this year's Fantastic Fest. Secondly, I've been at work all day today, and I have the same ultra-long 14-hour shift ahead of me on Thursday, so no drawing at all for me until Friday. But, Friday? Hooboy. I have a lot of stuff to draw. You should start seeing some finished request updates showing up that afternoon.

I owe a very special thanks to Fantastic Fest and Mondo Tees for spreading the word about this project. Thank you, Tim and Justin for the incredible support!

Here's a list of the next 10 folks that have made requests, in order...
#2 Jette Kernion
#3 John Osman
#4 Sven Johnson
#5 Brian Thompson
#6 Laremy Legel
#7 Peter S. Hall
#8 Melissa Wile
#9 Jason Westfall
#10 Danny Catlow
#11 Steph Beasley

That batch of 10 should all be on the site by the time you wake up on Saturday morning. Think of it as sugary breakfast cereal for the eyeballs.
