Commissions & Custom Art

Cartoons. Caricatures. Custom art. It's a constant, pressing need.

"How will I get through another day without them???!!!" you may be asking.

Well, fear no more. I can provide all 3 of those, plus more:

Gift Caricatures

For Retirements, Birthdays, Wedding Anniversaries, etc. Suitable for framing.

Christmas Cards

...Plus Birthdays and other occasions. Imagine snappy cartoon caricatures of your whole family, flying in a sleigh delivering presents and yuletide greetings. Or whatever else you might come up with.

T-shirt Art

For Company events, Family Reunions, Clubs, Sports, Advertising and Promotion, etc.

Advertising Art

For business cards, store windows, logos, signage, magnets, etc.

...And more!

Whatever your custom art needs, please contact me to discuss it. You can also see my Gallery Page for more samples.
Thank you,
Tim

About

Yes, my last name is really "Rocks." :-)

Photo of me drawing caricatures at the BJCC around 2008 probably. (Photo by my fellow caricature artist Ed Abernathy.)

Anyway, what you should really know is that since 2008 I have worked dozens and dozens of events, and can make yours very fun and enjoyable too!

I have worked events of all types and sizes...

...from small private parties to large corporate events with hundreds of employees and their families.

Mostly I work in central and north Alabama (Montgomery, Huntsville, and Birmingham), but I can and do travel further as well.

As far as custom art and freelance design or illustration, since the early 2000s I have worked on multiple published projects, including for regional book and magazine publishers (such as Books-A-Million's BAM! imprint, and UAB Magazine.)

I have also done many T-shirt designs for a local Alabama screenprinter.

Others come to me looking for unique gift ideas, such as custom caricatures suitable for framing.

I attended Mississsippi State's art program for several years, but am largely self-taught. I grew up in the 80s loving (and copying from) MAD Magazine and comic books.

Please call or email me if you have any questions, to get a quote, or to discuss your project:

Football mascot sketches

Just wanted to share these sketches from a few recent jobs.

They show the development of some designs for highschool homecoming Tshirts I was commissioned to do.

I will post the cleaned up, "inked" versions in a future post. Sometimes the sketches have a nice quality of their own though. The inks don't always retain the same liveliness of a pencil sketch.








Do you have a project in need of custom art or design? Call or email today!

Gangster Cats Custom Art Job

I cannot tell you how many people come to me asking for cartoon drawings of their cats dressed as gangsters...


Okay, not that many. But this was a fun job, so if YOU have any gangster cats (or dogs, parakeets, gerbils, etc.) let's talk!

Here's a view of it "in progress" during the coloring stage:
