Fancy Digital Sketch Drive


UPDATE: The Fancy Digital Sketch Drive was a a huge success! It’s over now, but expect more of these in the future. Thanks! – Joel

On August 1, 2012 my outside air conditioner died . The year before that, on August 1, 2011, the inside AC unit died. Both times you, The Fancy Bastards, saved my sweltering ass by purchasing sketch cards from my Fancy Sketch Drive. Here we are on August 1, 2013 and (so far) no major home appliances have exploded, but finances ARE super tight in HijiNKS ENSUE land.

To that end I am offering my first ever Digital Fancy Sketch Drive! For $20 I will draw just about whatever you want and send you a hi-res 8.5×11″ file, suitable for printing and framing. It will have a nice border denoting the 2013 Fancy Digital Sketch Drive and everything.

Why digital this time? Frankly because it’s going allow me to produce more higher quality drawings in less time, PLUS you will get them weeks if not months sooner since I won’t have to package, address and ship them all.

If you want to support my “I need to pay the bills this month” efforts but don’t care about getting a sketch, please feel free to make a donation of any amount.

[Here are some of the older pen and paper sketches I’ve done during Sketch Drives to give you an idea of what they look like]

Sketch request guidelines: For a regular $20 order I will draw any one or two characters (doesn’t have to be HE specific, but I do love drawing my own characters) saying or doing pretty much whatever. Alternate I can draw one character with some additional element (a prop, a background, a TARDIS, etc.) Make sure to put your sketch request in the notes field during checkout.

PLEASE READ: Please no requests to look up reference photos of you or other specific people. Characters from the comic, TV, movies, history, etc. are fine. Also no request to draw anything that will be used for commercial puropses (logos, labels, website headers, personal avatars, etc.).

Need some extra art juice?: If you think your request is complicated or difficult, or you just want to kick in a little extra to help with the fund raising then you can add on an optional donation. If your request is simple, but you add a donation anyway, I will probably go ahead a give you some extra juice. Just sayin’.

What about color? Most images will probably feature basic coloring or spot color (at my discretion). If you want to ensure a full color illustration, a donation of $10 or more is a great way to do just that.

Just remember that the goal is NOT to challenge me to see if I can draw some crazy thing you’ve come up with. Please be reasonable or I will draw you a hand turkey saying curse words.
