Here's how it works:


The above drawing was for the parents of a member of a college marching band to commemorate his first year in the program. First, I did a quick sketch, which you'll see at the far left. I sent this to the parents for approval, so they had an opportunity to see how it was shaping up and provide feedback. Once approved, I inked and colored the art. In this case, they selected the framed version, which is on the far right.

Here are some other samples:

Got your idea in mind? Awesome!

No more neck ties for him or bubble bath for her!

Who are you anyway?

Yeah, that's a fair question. My name is Chuck Downs and I've been cartooning since I was a little kid. I was that kid always doodling in class. You can poke around my site to see some of my cartoon and animation work. I'm a marketing guy in the daytime; cartoonist at night. I'd love to swap that around...

To get started, simply choose one of the options below and you are well on your way to a hassle-free gift giving experience:

Digital Only
Short on time? Got a big anniversary around the corner? We'll make it quick then. You’ll get an 8.5″ x 11″ full-color digital cartoon you can print out on any paper you want and easily bring with you to marriage counseling, which you’ll need once she finds out you got her a cartoon for your anniversary.
Printed & Framed
You get everything in the Digital package, plus I’ll print it out on high-quality paper, put it in a frame, and ship it right to your doorstep.

You’ll still have to drop it in a gift bag and stuff tissue paper around it at the last minute, but I can’t do everything for you.
