This is the time of year where I would usually offer a commission for membership trade. The truth is I don't really know if it's worth the effort. My membership is up in a week and it breaks my heart that after 6 years I really just don't care. Even my favorite posts seem to max out at less than 100 views. It's depressing. I now think of DA as the place I take my art to die. I do appreciate the 10 of you out there that favorite my art and the 3 who comment. But mostly I've hung around because of the one great supportive friend I've met here. You know who you are, Curt! I put a lot of time and effort into this page, in fact I wouldn't even be working in comics if it wasn't for DA. My career is going better than ever before and 2016 was great for me and my art, but not here. I will continue to post here as long as I can take the ad's. In the meantime please check me out here.

I just noticed that my membership was up in a few days and figured it was that time of year to offer up an art trade for a new one year membership. I'm offering one full color Copic marker bust sketch with simple background on 9x11 Bristol board. I also have some blank sketch covers if you'd prefer that. I will do most any character you request. I can only do one so it has to be on a first come first served kinda deal.
I'll cover the shipping so it has to be in North America only, unless you for some reason you can charm me into shipping internationally or just pick a character that I'd really like to draw :) It would be finished and delivered by Christmas.
I only offer this once a year because I'd rather abandon DA then spend the next year looking at ads. Please message me if interested. Thanx!

I realized my old journal needed updating. It was outdated and promoting a show that was a month ago. I don't have any shows for a few weeks and it's too early plug all the comic stuff I've been working on so I figured it was a good opportunity to promote my Facebook page.
I used to check my Deviant Art page multiple times a day, now just a few times a week. I wish I had more reason to come back often. It's just been very quiet. I'm not going anywhere, I'll continue to update regularly. I still love following my favorite artist on DA and appreciate the awesome support, I'm just spending more time on Facebook.
If you have any interest, please check me out there also.
It's not that different then my DA page, just with a lot more human interaction.

I'm going into my 5th year on DA and my membership expired today.
I've been spoiled and didn't realize how much it sucked not being current.
Bottom line, I'm offering an art trade. Pretty much any single character, 9" x 6", from the knees up, full color Copic marker illustration for a one year premium DA membership. If you prefer to have it done on a sketch cover blank, let me know. If I don't have the blank you are looking for, chances are I can track it down quickly.
It will be finished within a week and should arrive in time for Christmas.
I'll cover the postage if mailed in the U.S.
send me a note if interested and we can talk through what to expect and what you would like.
I will only have time do one of these, so I have to take just the first agreed upon request.
Hope to hear from you.
Thanks.
