[The lithograph I did for last month’s Techcrunch party in Menlo Park, sponsored by Stormhoek. Click on image to enlarge etc.]
I’m going to be hanging out my shingle more in the cartooning department. I think it’s time.
I’m looking at lots of ideas, but here are the four that currently interest me the most:
1. Lithograph Commissions. Like the lithograph I did for Techcrunch above, or the Blue Monster one I did for Microsoft, I’ll be taking on corporate commissions. If you have a company that you think could use a high-end “social object”, please feel free to send me an e-mail, thanks.
[This is a cartoon I designed for Jerry Colonna’s business card, about 2 years ago, which he still uses.]
2. Business Card Commissions. Sure, getting one of my cartoons onto your business card is easy enough via my Streetcards site, but if you fancy something a bit more personal, a it more unique, again, feel free to email me.
3. Cartoon Commissions. People want cartoons for all sorts of reasons. One of my favorite gigs this year was a series of cartoons I did for Sun Microsystems. I’m open to discussing all sorts of ideas here. Let me know.
4. Events. Every now and then people will sponsor me to come to their events, draw cartoons live and hand them out to attendees. Here’s a link to one I did a few months ago. I’m in the market to do more of these. Again, feel free to send me an e-mail.
My one caveat is: I’m not as inexpensive as I used to be. Basically, I charge corporate rates. Just letting you know…
Looking forward to seeing where this goes. I’ll keep you posted. Rock on.
