I'm available for commissions...

Just wanted to post again that I'm available for commissions. I actually could use the money from doing them very much indeed, and would love to have a little come in.

These will not be sketches, but fully rendered drawings, detail depending on the subject you request, but the samples below show how I work. All drawings will be on 8 1/2" x 11" card stock, making them easy to find a frame for. Depending on the subject matter, the medium will be charcoal or ink. Either way, you'll have a nice darkly rendered drawing to show off. The price for a drawing is $25, as long as you're not asking for more than three people in it. After three, add $5 per person.

I'll also do 5" x 8 1/2" for $10, with the same level of detail as the larger drawings.

For those that are really ambitious, 11" x 17" are available for $40, $75 with color.

I hear you asking, how will this work?

First off, e-mail me at or contact me through Facebook if you friend me there and let me know what you want. If you want a likeness of someone, send me a photo. I draw comics, but for you, I'll draw just about anything. When I'm done, I'll e-mail you a watermarked scan of your drawing, at a resolution of 72 dpi.

Here are some samples:

How do you get money to me? I prefer PayPal, but you can mail me a check, if you want. Once I have the money, I'll mail you your drawing in a plastic sleeve and inside a reinforced envelope, clearly marked "DO NOT BEND." If you have trouble with your mailman bending your large mail to fit, consider having it sent to a work address.

If you want to help me out but don't want a commission, there's plenty of original art, and a digital copy of Factor of 01 for sale on Etsy. The digital copy is just $1.99, so if you're strapped for cash, it's a good way to go to enjoy the story.

Doctor Who and Charlotte Comicon

Here's a drawing that I just finished of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor (or is he now the 12th?). It took a little bit of time to complete, but I feel like it was well worth it.

I did this after binging on some classic Doctor Who on Hulu, which has been adding Classic Doctor Who episodes like crazy. About a week ago, I re-watched The Angels Take Manhattan and realized that I am going to miss Matt Smith as the Doctor. I'm looking forward to Peter Capaldi as the doctor. I just hope that the next season is a little better than the bulk of the last one.

This Sunday, I'll actually have this for sale at my table at Charlotte Comicon, along with some of my Alphababes drawings and some other drawings that I've done for the heck of it from time to time. I'll also have a few copies of my comics there and Brandon Padgett (see the photo below) will have some sketchbooks including some of my artwork in them. The latest collection looks really nice.

This photo is from last fall's Charlotte Comicon, which was an absolute blast, and I promise that I'll be there all the time, with the exception of a potty break or two. Look for Brandon Padgett and Eraklis Petmezas as well there and many other great artists! Brandon sat next to me last fall, and hopefully, we'll be adjacent to each other again. Cons are always more fun when you can sit with your friends.
