I'm having some bad money troubles right now, as I wait for a hopefully lucrative/dream opportunity to coalesce, and pay the price for turning down a bunch of work in anticipation of same. I won't go into particulars, but the stress is real and 24/7!
So if you've ever wanted a little drawing from me, something that would look nice in a frame or just Scotch-taped up next to your desk, or a present for a friend, this is your chance, and it will help me. The drawing will be of something I think you'll like--if I don't know you, I'll try to make it pretty universal, or at the very least something that *I* like. Pen and ink and watercolor on a 4" x 6" piece of 140lb watercolor paper, shipping straight to you.
Thanks in advance! And if you need it in a hurry (say, for a present), let me know and I'll prioritize it. Otherwise I'll be filling these in between other paying work.
I’ll draw a dinosaur of your choosing, in this style and facing right,
like the dinosaurs in my book BEHOLD! THE DINOSAURS!, in india ink on a piece of 8” x 10” archival bristol board, for $100 USD + shipping.
Note 1: I reserve the right to refuse any request for any reason. For instance if there’s very little evidence of a dinosaur’s existence past a couple of bones, or if I’m just tired of drawing Tyrannosaurus Rexes.
Note 2: for the bigger dinosaurs, longer than 75 feet, you can choose
to pay an extra $100 and I’ll draw them to scale on 11” x 17” bristol.
For instance, Spinosaurus, Brachiosaurus, and so on. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
I'll draw a single person, character, or other entity on a 5" x 7" piece of bristol board, generally in black and white ink unless I feel like adding color (my preference). There are three catches:
1) I'LL ONLY DRAW A PERSON ONCE, so if there's someone you're really into, act fast. The only exception to this is if it's a sufficiently separate instance of that person: i.e young Bill Murray versus older Bill Murray, or Han Solo in his winter gear in Empire Strikes Back, versus his vest-style outfit in Star Wars.
2) REAL PEOPLE must be somewhat famous, either historically or otherwise, meaning I'm either already aware of them or could quickly become aware of them. Cochise, Harriet Tubman, and George Clooney are examples of people who would fit this category. Your favorite teacher, local mayor, or mom would not--if you'd like me to draw someone *personally* significant to you, as opposed to more universally significant, we can work out a regular old commission for that, outside of this offer.
3) NOT REAL PEOPLE must be fairly significant as well, either among the major characters of a work of fiction, or sufficiently recognizable that I could figure out who they were pretty quickly if not already familiar with them. If I'm into it fine, but I'll tend to turn down requests where I can't find visual reference online pretty easily, especially if it's something pretty esoteric.
As always, I reserve the right to refuse any request for any reason--if so I'll let you know pretty promptly, and refund your money if we can't come up with a replacement we're both enthusiastic about. Drawings will ship flat. Currently I estimate about 3-4 weeks for drawings to be completed (I have lots of other work to do and try to draw these when I'm really pumped about it so they look good)--let me know if you want them earlier, for instance as a gift. Okay!
OH! And be sure you put who you want in the "Instructions To Seller" space during the Paypal checkout process. Feel free to email me at dustyATdharbinDOTcom with any questions or to confirm I got your order.
Original drawing, generally 4" x 6", on high quality bristol board or archival cotton rag. Generally ink. Drawings change based on availability and my own inclination--this is not a space to ask for commissions or special drawings not listed here. First come first served!
