FAQs

Some questions get asked repeatedly. I am a freelancer handling art, editing, writing, and project development, and I am an advocate for libraries and for gaming in libraries. If you want to know more about some of these topics, the answers you are looking for might be right here.

Magic: the Gathering and other collectible cards

Do you sign cards by mail?
Yes but with this caveat: you may have to wait a bit for me to get around to it. Signing cards is not a high priority and I do it when I can. Sometimes this means months go by. I’m perfectly willing to stay in touch, and you can send me an email nudge when you’re getting concerned, but please don’t ask me to sign cards if you cannot be patient. If you send cards to be signed, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope for them to be returned in. If you are overseas, please make some arrangement to cover my postage costs to return the cards. Please use my PO Box address for all snailmail: PO Box 14824, Tucson AZ 85732 USA.

Do you enhance cards by mail?
We can discuss this. If you want something done for free, I will be honest and say that you will get what you pay for. I have a hard time finding time just to sign my name on the cards for free. Making time to enhance printed art will cannibalize time from other assignments and, as the goblins say, “Time is money, friend.” I’ll do enhancements, but I will ask you to pay for my time.

Do you have whiteback artist proofs from Magic?
Yes, and I will offer them for sale when the “Storefront” goes live on this site. Until that happens, feel free to inquire with me directly.

Commissions

I’d like you to hire you to work on a freelance project or have you do an art commission. Are you available?
If you want it cheap, it won’t be fast. If you want it fast, it won’t be cheap, and might not be possible at all if I am booked up. Otherwise, if you are interested in having me do art, editing, writing, or project development, I’d love for you to get in touch. I will be happy to negotiate a price with you based on the work needed.
