This post is probably a little late (oops), but if you’d like to pick up some original art from me at HeroesCon (Charlotte, NC, June 16-18), traditional media commissions are up for preorder!  (I’ll be doing postcard-sized sketches at the show—including alien portraits—but you’ll have to preorder to get a more elaborate piece like those above.)

For an 8.5″x11″ piece of original art with 1-2 characters on a simple background, prices are:

  • Pencil sketch: $20
  • Black-and-white: $30
  • Color/Graytone: $50
  • +$5 for each additional character, +$15 for a more detailed background

You can still get a piece if you won’t be at HeroesCon, you’ll just have to pay a couple bucks extra for shipping; full prices and info can be found here.  Emailed/digitally posted commissions (in digital or traditional media) are also available!

Note me, or email me at, if you’re interested.  Thanks!

Thought I'd put up a formal price list in case anyone's interested.  :P

Note: these prices refer to comic pages created for personal use/free distribution.  For work that's intended to be published and sold—whether in print or as a digital file—note me or email me at and we'll discuss the price based on the project (is it published by a big company or by one person with a Kickstarter account, are they offering to pay page rates, etc.)

However, if you're commissioning comic pages to use as samples in a PITCH to a publisher or anthology, the prices below still apply.

"Scribble comic":  $25/page
(not necessarily final pencils ready to be inked, but a quick, doodle-y, "it comes out however it comes out" type of thing)

For non-standard comic sizes (like a newspaper-style comic strip), or just one step of the process (just pencils, just inks, or just tones/colors), contact me and we'll figure something out.

(Also, I'm pretty good at estimating page breakdowns, so if you just have a general idea that you want me to write and draw instead of giving me an already-written script, after a little plot discussion I can estimate the page count and price for you.)

More examples of my comic work can be found here.

Here's the thing: I've got a couple of posters that've been rolled up in tubes for a year and a half.  They're perfectly fine, nothing that can't be fixed by flattening them under a stack of encyclopedias, but given the circumstances, I'm selling them for $5 (free domestic U.S. shipping—inquire about international), which can be Paypal'ed to  Currently I have three of the orange posters left.

The posters aren’t going out of print—you can still find the usual purchase links here—I just figured I should move these particular copies along before they get any more warped.

There are a couple of comics ("The Note" and "The Reason Why") I want to retire from my shops but still have a lot of copies of, so I'm giving them away!  If you get 'em by themselves I'll need $1 to cover the postage, but I'm 100% willing to send you both when you purchase one or throw one or both in when you purchase something else.

Both comics, and all the rest of my products, can be found at my Paypal shop, Etsy and Storenvy.  I'll also throw these books in with commission orders.  I just want 'em out of my house!

First off, I promise I'm not begging for money this time.  ;)

But I DO want to announce that I just started a webcomic this past weekend!  It's called "Space Case", and the first three pages are up on both Tumblr and Tapastic, with future updates coming each Saturday.

It's a goofy, mostly-episodic series about an accountant who quits his boring job on Earth for an exciting new job in outer space only to discover that...well...there's nothing quite so familiar as the alien.  It's basically "If The Office was a spinoff of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy but everything looks kind of like Lilo & Stitch."

I may wind up cross-posting pages here, but in the meantime you can catch all the freshest updates at the above two links.

  • Eating: should probably do that...
But at least now I'm only two months behind on crossposting art from my Tumblr!  My gallery should be completely up-to-date by the end of February.

Anyhow, freelance art life is tough and I'm hosting a variety of sales on a variety of websites if you wanna help a gal out and get some more-or-less-decent handmade comics, posters, or original artwork on the cheap.

I’ve got a sale going on through Feb 28 that’s pretty much buy-one-get-one.  You can literally get two posters (normally $30) for the price of one ($15).  Details at the page.

Storenvy:  You can get the same deal as above if you tell me which item you want to get free, since Storenvy doesn't have built-in discount/sale options.  (I also have some original artwork listed here that's not listed anywhere else, but if you want something and don't have an SE account, contact me via note or email and we can cut a deal by check or Paypal.)

There’s a coupon code for 25% off your order through Feb 28, which you can find by clicking on any of the product listings.

Gumroad:  Admittedly there's no sale going on here, but the only items I've got up here are just $1 and $4 respectively.  They're here if PDFs are more your thing than actual material objects.

I'm also open for commissions!

If you'd like to lend a hand but not in a financial way, you can help advertise me by reblogging my Tumblr post on this subject, or by tweeting a link to that post or this one, or by mind-melding with your android doppelgangers or whatever it is you cool kids are doing with your newfangled social medias these days.

Thank you~!  I am a dummy!

I'm trying to scrape together a couple extra bucks to pay for holiday presents, and I think I'm more or less emotionally prepared to sell original art.  So if there's a piece in my gallery you've always wanted hanging on your wall, or on the wall of a loved one this season of giving, it can be yours from between $5-$20 USD (depending on the size and complexity), plus $2 for domestic U.S. shipping (ask about international rates).

Below are just some examples of stuff I found loose in my drawer, but I've got a pretty good system of organization and I can probably find anything unless it's something I've already given away.  Even a digitally colored piece of art like the Dudeghost and Viceroy ones below will probably have a core ink drawing or a pencil sketch that you can grab, and I'll give full disclosure if the original is a page from a sketchbook or drawn on the back of an old math homework or something.

And, as always, I'm available for commissions and I've got premade posters and comics up for sale in my Paypal and Etsy shops.

Thank you!  :faint:

Oof, sorry I keep abandoning this account and then periodically reappearing with a flurry of months-old art.  I really need to get my gallery back up to date, at least.

Anyhow, per usual, I'm a lot more consistently active on Tumblr if you like my work!  It's even a strictly-dedicated art blog so you don't have to wade through pages of me reblogging Wander Over Yonder gifs or slowly losing my sanity over The Anime Club.  (Though you do get a sense of that on my art blog too...)

I'm also still free for commissions!  Price list and samples (probably outdated too, bleh) can be found here.  I'll try to log into this account more often, but you'll probably get a speedier response if you contact me via my email,

And I have two web stores open with hand-made minicomics, sketch cards and posters, my Paypal-friendly web store and an Etsy shop!

And you can find my work almost every week over at Comic Book Resources' sketch group, The Line It Is Drawn.

Thanks for browsing, and for bearing with me!

Due to my heavy school workload, I have made an executive decision to close commissions for the time being, to be reopened in late June.

If you'd like to help support my artistic endeavors anyways, I recently opened an online shop where you can purchase pre-made watercolor sketch cards for $10, and printed comics for as low as $2 (all with free domestic US shipping).  All these options are significantly cheaper than the price of a commission, but would still help me out a lot.

And if you'd like to help out in a less financial way, you can reblog my shop announcement on Tumblr and/or retweet it on Twitter (or post a link on whatever other social media you crazy kids are doing these days, I suppose) to help spread the word!

Thanks a bunch!
Sorry I don't update super often on here anymore...basically everything I draw gets reposted here sooner or later, but if you're looking for quicker updates on all my newest art pieces (and there have been a LOT of them since I joined "The Line It Is Drawn"), my Tumblr would be your best bet.

(And here's a link to my portfolio site just because.)

Thanks for sticking with me! :D

I've given it a lot of thought, and now I'm giving you all a heads-up—at the end of this year, my commission rates are going to be raised slightly.  This won't affect the price of anyone who's already commissioned me under the old rates, and you can still get a piece with the old rates if you contact me before New Year's Eve, but I figured it would be fair to announce it in advance.

Big thanks to everyone who's ever bought a commission from me!  You've all been a big help!
