Introducing: Five-Minute Portraits!

Live-drawing is one of my favourite things to do, and produces some of my favourite cartoons.
I love the looseness and spontaneity! Part of it comes from the presence of being in the moment, and a lot of it is the time constraint. I’ve always wanted to capture this in my professional work, but with how much I pore over details, a lot tends to come out very “polished” (for better or for worse).
I’m opening up commissions for the first time in forever, and trying something different - five minute portraits, drawn in (you guessed it) five minutes or less, with the intention of capturing the fun expressiveness of live-drawing. It will also give me more practise releasing work into the world that was drawn with a quick hand.
Portrait slots are limited! Paid subscribers got first dibs, but the posting is now being opened up to the general public.
