Colorful Portraits only $50 a head!
You just email me a photo of yourself (or someone else) you’d like painted, a la melinda, and you’ll have an art piece you can keep forever! It could make a great gift or a facebook, blog or tumblr profile pic that really stands out! (USA Shipping Included)

If you've enjoyed reading my comics and have a little extra money to throw my way, I'd greatly appreciate it. I am a young, unemployed artist living in the city trying to scrape up rent money every month (no guilt trips here...), so any money you could donate would be great. If you have 10$ or more to send my way, I'll make it worth your while! Include your shipping address and I'll send you a small drawing or piece of art...each one will be unique. Thanks everyone!

pheeeeewwwwwww…..(huge breath of air exhaled). Folks, here is my HUGE backlog of daily comics. I know that i’ve disappointed many this last half month (believe me, i’ve disappointed myself) by being a total slacker. The truth is, these last couple weeks have been CRAZY. But i’ve worked so hard to try and catch up with my daily comics…i’m still drawing them every day…it’s just taking me awhile to paint them then re-line them. But don’t worry…all my June ones are on their way as well. I moved, which took up a lot of my time…but now I’m living in Downtown Portland! It’s my first time living in a city, and it’s already created many opportunities for great comics…so wait and see what’s coming up! Thanks so much to everyone for your support and comments…even the mean ones motivate me to get working! More to come soon! Love,

I check it like everyday to see if you’ve posted something new and just when i was just about to send you a message “demanding” (lmao) where your brilliant drawings are, i find a tooooon of them!!

    Awesomeness! *high five*

  • Ryan Spence:

    After several days of checking, I’m relieved to see more comics! :]

    Hey, I checked out your work since last week and I just can’t stop coming here for more. I’m digging the older ones and reading them all. It’s an incredible material you have here, I like the drawing style, the colours and the way you use small things from normal life… your independent way of making things happen it’s an inspiration to me, I hope you can get bigger and bigger in the comicstrip job through the years.

    Just waiting to see more from now on!
