Well I'm trying something new. These are strange and interesting times and I find it necessary to change and adapt my approach when it comes to my work. I have had questions about commissions, freelance work and different ways of supporting my creative endeavors. Its all been very flattering and humbling to know that there are people that actually care about what I do that much. Big virtual-socially distanced hug to you all that reached out. Patreon, Gofundme and Deviant Art came up. While I like all those sites and many others, they all seem a bit too convoluted for my tastes and even with this (my personal) website it gets a bit complex. So I have been on the look for something simpler and more streamline to use on both ends (for the consumer and the producer). Then I noticed some fellow online creators talking about an alternative to Patreon that was easier to use called BuyMeACoffee.com. So I looked into it and really liked it. It's fairly new and not as established, but way easier to use especially if like me all you want to do is post your art and move on to other projects. Or if you have different kinds of projects and products that you want to offer. I may eventually let go of my website altogether and just post over there. Besides, its 2021 not 2001, websites are kind of dated ways to reach an audience at this point. I fell like the guy with a lemonade stand off the side of the information superhighway. So, if you like my work and want to support it with minimal commitment you can now...
I know I'm a little late on this one but, here it is anyways. It was a monumental moment in Tucson history to see the first Latina Mayor get elected. Moreover, she hails form my neck of the desert, the Yuma area of Arizona. Best of luck to her, I can't wait to see what she does with the Old Pueblo!

About two weeks ago I get a request through my website for a commission from a very cool fella in Canada. I have yet to meet a Canadian I didn't like. This particular gent wanted me to draw good ole Trump and Putin in a BDSM scene. That alone sounded super fun. I was all geared up to draw this and then the "golden showers" allegations happened. On a silver platter! As a cartoonist that's then most amazing thing that could occur when you are looking for satirical inspiration. So I took my Canadian client's request and the recent "stream" (pun fully intended) of events and ran with it. I must admit it has been one of the most vulgar yet fun pieces I have ever done. I teased parts of it a bit on social media and got plenty of requests to see it. After much deliberation I decided to show it here and make it available for sale. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of this piece drop me a line with your address and use the Paypal button on the right or my Bitcoin wallet address and submit a payment of 20$ and I will ship you an 11x17 inch poster of this image. If you live outside of the US standard shipping fees will apply, don't worry I will let you know what they are.
I'm now accepting bitcoin! If you need an illustration please let me know and I will send you my wallet address or just use the QR code on the right. The pricing will be in dollars but I will accept the bitcoin equivalent. Hit me up and let me know what you need.
So uh, this happened. You can now buy my book on Amazon.com for your Kindle. Its 28 pages of full color illustrations lampooning the Arizona political environment and the most recent Presidential election. All for a whopping $1.99 for the digital version of this book. Click on the picture or the above link to go to the site and purchase the book.
