It’s February, the month of love. (Don’t forget to do something special for your significant other this Valentine’s Day; it’s on a Saturday.) This month, I’ve got my regular report card for you, plus a couple new exciting developments. (Well, I’m excited. Hopefully you will be, too.) Thanks for reading and thanks for your support of this ongoing art project!
My Fiverr Gigs
My first $5 gig has become a moderate success, and it keeps growing! I’ve integrated my Doodle My Dog site with Fiverr, where people offer specialty services for $5. You can choose your add-ons (like color or a background) directly on the site. Fiverr also acts as an escrow so you don’t have to fret about payment. The gig is here. I also hired a broadcaster to create a commercial for me. Listen to it, below. Brian did an amazing job. Hire him for your commercial needs! (Voice and writing credit: Brian Craig.) I am offering three new gigs online as well: I’m offering celebrity caricatures for $5: Check it out here. I’ll draw actors, musicians, sports stars, and even (ugh) politicians. I have two advertising gigs. Wanna advertise on this site? I’m getting 15,000 unique visitors a month, plus I’m promoting myself on about a jillion other sites. (That’s a real number.) Click here for details. If you have a pet-oriented service, you can buy ad space on my Doodle My Dog page. Go here for details. For both gigs, I can create a simple image for your business. My profile is here. Check me out, let’s do some business!
New Artwork for Sale
Since December, I’ve been slammed with freelance client work so I haven’t been able to draw as many caricatures as I’d like. (I’m hoping my Fiverr gig can help change that.) However, I do have some new work and some new products for sale. The first is the War Doctor from Doctor Who. John Hurt’s appearance as the Doctor was very brief, but very memorable. Doctor Who caricatures are still my top sellers overall, so I’ll keep making them. I’ll draw all thirteen Doctors, eventually. Next up is Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor. The second is one of my Doodle My Dog projects that I’m particularly happy with. Her name is Queen and she loves her beats!

Wanna sleep with me? My RedBubble store is now offering tiled duvet covers. See below for a couple of examples. Shop here! Today (2/2) until 8pm, RedBubble is offering 20% off in honor of their 8th birthday. Use the code CRAZY8 to get the discount.
Top sellers for January 2015
Sales dropped a bit after an extremely successful holiday season, but not as much as I feared. (Thanks to all who made a purchase.) I got a couple of boosts from other blog sites. Dave from Horror Cabin wrote me an excellent write-up about my horror series and he bought some artwork, too. (Thanks Dave!) Indieminded included me in their “Top 40 Jurassic Park tees” post, which was a big boost. My top sellers for January 2015 are my Jurassic Park inspired tee shirts and my Cabin in the Woods caricature, which my customers decided to print on stickers, greeting cards, and posters. Please click the images below to see your purchasing options. Share, like, and comment, too. I’ve got lots of new stuff that I’ve added to my Wanelo shop, including duvet covers, tee shirts, and pillow cases. Check it out!
Top blog post for January 2015
My top blog post was my random thoughts about Tarantino’s latest movie, Django Unchained. Check it out here. It was a lot of fun to write, so I plan on writing more about movies. I don’t want to write in-depth reviews, but I kind of like the bullet point format. What do you think, dear reader? Let me know in the comments. [movie_reviews]
