This Hundred Dollar Drawing was requested by my brother. His own Happy Family will have to figure out who everyone is, ’cause I sure can’t. I’m also not sure about the dog. Is s/he happily dreaming of eating all of them?
Above: Lexula, Goddess of Scrabble. Her right hand dispenses letter tiles – randomly, because she is blindfolded. Her left hand wields the CrosSword.
Below: Cryonysus, God of Whiney Man-Babies.
Neither of these are technicallyHundred Dollar Drawings, since I drew them for myself during a slow period. But they are of that genre, so I’m including them in the series.
I really like the spontaneity, freshness, and non-computery-ness of drawing tiny on paper. Lately I’ve been drawing little flipbooks, but even this “Ganesha Marimba” looks suspiciously like a conventional pencil test, in spite of being only a couple inches wide and drawn in ballpoint pen. So I upped my game and drew even smaller:
This is easier than drawing flipbooks because I can see everything at the same time, rather than only the one drawing previous. And it’s tiny! So full of lovely mistakes and life.
Next I plan to draw even tinier!

Technically not a Hundred Dollar Drawing.
From the Hundred Dollar Drawing page: “As always, if you have a special request, don’t want to follow the restrictions, want a regular commercial contract, etc., you must contact me and offer way more money, because $100 is crazy cheap. I’m not saying I’ll do it, but if I do, it will definitely cost more.”
Les asked for “an 800-pound sacred cow in a living room with a few people ignoring it.”
Above: version 1. Below: version 2.

My very first Hundred Dollar Flipbook. This Ganesha is playing an invisible marimba with drumsticks rather than those double-stick things real marimba players use. Far from perfect, but I got challenged in a way I need more of. Thanks Marion!

For $100 I will make a little flipbook animation inspired by your request. For another $100 I will mail you the original* flipbook.
*It’s $100 because if I let go of the originals I’ll have to scan every page at high resolution for posterity, which takes some time. Whereas it’s much faster to just shoot a little “pencil test” with my phone camera. Rules are the same as Hundred Dollar Drawings:
Requests must be 2 words (or fewer)
These suckers will be maybe 20 frames or so, shot drawn with quality ballpoint pen on thin, flimsy 6″x4″ or 5″x3″ notepads. Examples:
