Have you commissioned one of my fellow Archie artists for a kick-ass piece of line-art that you’ve been thinking about getting colored up? Gimme’ a holler for a special 10% discount on coloring for that artwork!

Why a discount? Well, I work with these guys month-after-month, so I’d pretty much be getting to stay in my comfort zone. Also, my hope is that if you hadn’t before you might consider commissioning these guys for something! I work with some very talented artists, so be sure to check ‘em out! 



Please contact me by e-Mail at or via Note to discuss your commission and confirm my availability.

Payment is due up front upon acceptance of your commission via PayPal ( Turnaround on pin-ups is typically within a day, full illustrations two to three days. 

:: FAQ ::

 Why no drawing commissions?

I work almost exclusively as a colorist these days, so I am crazy out-of-practice at the drawing board and it would take me forever to finish a piece.

I commissioned you at so-and-so convention ages ago! Where’s my art?? 

Do I owe ya’ something? PLEASE contact me ASAP via!

I haven’t been to conventions in over three years due to my busy schedule, and there are five pieces that were meant to be picked up at other shows that have been sitting around for quite some time now. Either I’ve misplaced your contact info during a move or efforts to contact you have failed. So please get in touch with me so I can get your art to you!
