The delightfully charming Adam Darkly, known as @devilsconjure on Instagram, wanted to be a cartoon!
He asked to be dressed as a conjureman at a crossroads at night under the full moon, and left the rest of the layout up to me. I put a devil in his pocket, a three-card playing card reading in his hand, and candles at the four points of the crossroads, and left the rest up to imagination. When shown the final version, he said, “It’s perfect!”
My commissions queue is full right now, but if you, too, want to live life as your cartooniest self, drop me a line and I’ll put you on the waiting list!

99 Tech Toys
Thursday, September 19th, 2019
When my friend Amber asked me to help her think of a birthday card design to tease her husband about the Switch he didn’t have*, we tossed around a few ideas, but this was the winner. “I got 99 tech toys but a Switch ain’t one” was just too funny not to use, plus it let me design Rap Badass Rey, which will have many uses in the future.
Some of the text was edited in post, mainly the Switch logo effect, because sometimes computers really do just do it better.
*obviously, he got one along with the card

My lovely patron, who sometimes gets called a teacup-sized human, has made some tiny humans of their own! They asked to be immortalized in chibi form, and thus we have the cuplets. We went with a mix of new-school design and old-school bright comic colors for our Wonder Woman, and old school all the way for Spock’s cosplay.
Basically, they have the best parent and I have the best patrons.

Disco Chibi Portrait
Tuesday, November 21st, 2017
More commissions! Yes, my queue continues to be full, and yes, it’s awesome.
One of my wonderful online friends wanted a portrait of her sparkly nerd lesbian self with her fancy new mermaid hair and cute yellow short-shorts, front and back to make the most awesome silly chibi thing yet – pillows! Plush Disco for all!
And of course we made them into Slack emoji, since that’s where we primarily hang out, and what is chat without a disco-dancing Disco?
These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack (and pillows!). Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

Cartoon: Jocelyne Leach
Saturday, April 28th, 2012
I like to think Jocelyne’s cartoon really shows how far I’ve come with this style of art. She’s doing a simple yoga pose with the legs, has her logo on her tank top, and is toasting us with a tasty green smoothie in her left hand. I think this tall, skinny image is going to go in her sidebar to welcome guests to her website.
Here’s to you, Jocelyne, for being a great client!
