Okay you cheeky monkeys!

I've been working on sketch requests this evening, got a dozen here ready to go out the door, and I'd like to request or reiterate a few things. First, DON'T SEND MONEY. Seriously. I don't do commissions right now and it won't make your request turn up any quicker. Thank you for the thought but I really don't want your 'donation' to get lost en route. Second, can we maybe limit the amount of characters per request to two or three at the very most? I just got one here asking for three sketches, two with doubles and a third with something like 5 characters in a group shot. Maybe I'm just cranky tonight but...nuhhhh. Third, please put in the name of the person the sketch is for. I've had a few requests tonight alone that asked for a sketch for their brother or wife or friend and then there was no name attached. And yeah, part of the reason is so that it doesn't end up on e-bay but the other is because, well if you're making it a gift, why not make it special and have it personalised? And last, for now anyway, if you want your sketch to turn up for a specific date like a birthday please write TIME SENSITIVE on the back of your envelope and in your letter let me know the date it needs to get back to you by. No abusing this now, I'm doing my best to get to all these asap.

Thanks everyone, and now back to the grind...

I was one of those silly people who included money, sorry about that!

I just want to share, thanks so much for the sketch. I just received it today, and it seriously made my year. I am taking it in to get it framed, and I absolutely treasure it. I'm 25, but I actually started hopping up and down laughing like I was 6 years old again when I received it.

Thanks so much for making this comic book fan a much happier person.

Hope all is well.
