Draw Brandon Draw

Hello friends, my name is Brandon.
I write and draw for comics and cartoons.

Here are some tags to look at:
Comics / Illustration / Pokemon / Teeth / Animation

You can also buy things from my big cartel store, that would be very nice of you to do. Or you can just click here to give me money. I'm not sure why you would do that, but there's the link for it.

(I’m not worried about him seeing this, since the closest chris gets to using Tumblr is sitting patiently while I show him kitty gifs on my phone)A belated birthday gift for my beloved partner in life - What says “I love you endlessly and you are my perfect companion” more than a silly drawing of each other? Nothing! Brought to you by the splendid Brandon B. (drawbrandondraw) who is having a super summer caricature portrait sale, which you should get right on. We have a few other pieces of Brandon B art, including the adored “Crow Dad” tshirt, and this is a delightful addition. 

Catherine, thanks for the shout-out! (See? I got your name right this time)

(I’ve also included the reference photos everybody sent me so you can see what exactly I’ve been working with here)

So here’s the deal!

I’m offering *super cheap* caricatures/portraits as part of a "I’m updating my illustrative portfolio" SUMMER SALE

So while I bone up on my own illustration skills, you can help me out by tossing some money my way and you’ll get a portrait out of the deal. Everybody wins!

CLICK HERE TO BUY
(and be sure to email a picture of your mug to Brandon at DrawBrandonDraw.com)

Supplies here are pretty limited because these things are really way underpriced and I’ll pull the sale when I get tired of drawing.

Hey Brandon, I love your art so much. I was wondering if you could offer some advice, since you write about sex positive topics AND you're an illustrator. I can't decide whether I should peruse art or sexual health education. I love drawing and wanted to be an animator or comic artist for as long as I can remember, but when I got to college, I hated my cinema major and lost all confidence in my writing and drawing skills. I'm good at talking about sexual health, but am I making a mistake? Thanks

Hi Lauren (I found your name through your comic—you’ve got some funny stuff on there), thanks for thinking highly enough of me to ask me for career advice, that’s really flattering.

I don’t know your situation or what happened during your cinema major that shook your confidence, so I can’t really comment on that. But if you have as great a passion for sexual health education as you do for comics, you might be able to exercise greater control over your career path with the former.

Here’s what I can tell you from my own experience about a career in art: Regardless of skills or qualifications, landing regular jobs with steady income is tough. Even with a stack of reliable contacts to call upon, there are lean, lean times. When times are tough, it helps greatly to have a partner who has a steady job.

At the risk of sounding like my parents, you can always pursue a more practical line of work, and nobody in the world can stop you from still making your comics.

And if, like me, you decide to throw caution to the wind and decide that pursuing a career in art is what you HAVE to do for your own satisfaction and sanity, then it isn’t really anybody’s place to say whether or not you’re making a mistake. You’re only 20, and you still have lots of time to figure out what feels right for you.

I know this is all platitude-sounding stuff, but it’s true. Just do you, you know what I’m saying?

I’m offering caricatures again!!!
