Commissions and Custom Art

 If you are interested in custom art, or just want to drop me a line for any reason, feel free to do so. You can see from looking around here what sort of styles I typically work in, but I am always up for trying new things too, if the project calls for something different.

I can give you a quote and answer any questions you may have. A deposit is normally required to begin work. My Event Caricatures page (if you are having a party or event and need cartoon caricatures) is here:  TimRocksArt.com

Bio

As a child in the early 80s I got into MAD Magazine, Uncle Scrooge, and various other comics swag that set me on the path of wanting to be a cartoonist. After high school I spent a few years at a state university majoring in art, but am mostly self-taught.

In the early 00s I began doing freelance illustration work, mainly for a small book publisher here in Birmingham. I worked on a series of exercise books, kids' joke-books, a religious picture book, and more.

They went under during the economic downturn of '08, but I continue to do various freelance work. I also added Event Caricatures to my offerings. That's been a great experience, traveling around the north Alabama region (and sometimes beyond), meeting lots of people and getting better at that kind of speedy cartooning.

When I'm not doing that, of course, I continue penning the adventures of Goldbug, his sidekick Ingot Lad, and various other big-time projects... Please check them out, have a look around, and feel free to email or leave comments here on this blog.

Thank you,
Tim
