FRIDAY, JUNE 29th, 2012

Hey, dudes.  I’m just posting up a reminder that I DO NOT (usually) answer anonymous mail sent to me on Tumblr.  Why?  Because it’s like this (click that link for a full explanation).

True, sometimes I break this rule if it’s a real good question or something, but generally, I don’t.

I answer EVERY SINGLE piece of non-anonymous mail I get sent, and I love getting mail, so keep it up.  If you just wanna send a message saying you like my drawings, go ahead and send that anonymously if you want, that’s rad.  But if you’ve got a question you want answered, don’t send it anonymously.

Right now, like half of the messages I get are anonymous.  And they just sit in my mailbox.  People send me shit like “Can you design a tattoo for me?” and then send it anonymously.  Huh?  C’mon.  What’m I supposed to do with THAT?

I’m not scary.  Not over the internet, anyway.  Send me a message non-anonymously.  You’ll like the results way better.

And, oh yeah.  This might save some of you a bit of trouble: I DO charge for work.  My rates are cheap though (punk prices!), so it doesn’t hurt to ask if you wanna graphic for your album covers, or t-shirts, or skate decks, or iron lungs… whatever you make.  Also, I can’t give you a quote without details.  So if you’re asking about my prices, please give as much info as you can, like what kinda graphic you want, if there’s a deadline, your website, etc…  Thanks in advance!

That is all.  Listen to punk.  Skateboard.  Get in trouble.  Avoid school (unless you’re skateboarding, listening to punk and/or getting in trouble in one).
