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.

Thanks!

"an owl who lives in a colorful and magical happy place"

I can think of no place more colorful and magical than your local Department of Motor Vehicles. This request comes from Rachel Cerkovnik, intended to liven up her cubicle. Interesting note about this drawing--this is the first one I've done for the site which was straight ink to paper, without me laying down any kind of rough pencil work beforehand. This is how I usually draw, when I'm drawing for my own pleasure, and I think there's a vitality to my art this way, because it leaves absolutely no margin for error. The downside is that I throw away 75% of my drawings due to mess-ups. Thanks, Rachel!
