Have a question?
Who runs the website?
The site is managed completely by myself – Jesse Wichmann.
Do you accept staggered payments?
Sometimes. Staggered payments are reserved for original cover art purchases only and are accept on a case by case basis. I break the total price down to 3 or 4 monthly payments, paid privately via Paypal invoice.
Does Jesse take on convention sketches?
Typically yes, time permitting. This is also the best way to get a sketch or commission from me as I don’t usually take on private commissions outside of conventions. You may contact me through the site about getting on any pre-show sketch list and you can obviously see me during the show about having something done.
Does Jesse do studio commissions?
Yes, though my private commission list is generally closed due to time constraints. Besides drawing for comics full time, I am also a full time tattoo artist. It’s my preference not to take money from people while making them wait indefinitely for art from me. The usual flow is that as soon as I’m done with work for myself or for the various publishers I work with, a new project or rush order pops up. When that happens private work will always be the first thing pushed to the end of the priority list. I will keep commissions options available in the store section of the site and when I have time to take some on I’ll alert fans and collectors via social media or directly via email.
Does Jesse charge for signatures at conventions?
No. If you spend money on my books, whether it’s through me directly or through a retailer, that supports me, both financially and by telling my publishing clients that you love what I’m making. The least I can do is sign your book for you.
Does Jesse charge for photos at conventions?
Jesse will be happy to pose in a photo for or with you, without charge, time permitting!
Can I send something for Jesse to sign for me?
Certainly. I do request that you contact me prior to sending so I know to expect it. You MUST include return priority postage[i.e. with tracking information], otherwise your comics will get added into my collection. I’m going to open your package, sign your books, then repack them back into whatever you sent them in, so pack them well to ensure safe handling en-route.
Can Jesse send me an autograph?
Sure. Same as above. Send a request through the site. Pay for shipping. Be happy.
How do I contact Jesse?
Please only use the contact pages here for site, store, art sales or convention inquiries. For any other inquiry, or to socialize, please contact me via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page. Social media link buttons are located at the bottom of each page.

I'm a publisher and I'd like Jesse to draw for me...?

Will Jesse design characters or do concept art for me?
No. I simply do not have time or interest in that type of work.
Can Jesse teach me to draw comics?
The short answer here is no. I'm an art school graduate and when it comes to comic art, mostly self taught, and I learned what I know before there was as much information available on the internet as there is today. If I can do it, so can you. Also it's a time based thing as well as a patience thing. I don't have much of either when it comes to teaching 1 on 1. That said you can always ask for a portfolio review or some quick tips at a convention. Additionally I'm going to be revamping my Patreon.com page to be a structured ongoing learning center for drawing, publishing, convention survival and anything else I can think of as it applies to the production of comic books.
I'm a .........[writer/penciler/inker etc], will Jesse hire me?
No. I'm a writer, penciler, letterer, designer, art director and pre-press manager. About the only thing I don't do is the actual coloring of my art, which I hire out for to a select group of seasoned color artists. My art is not for beginners, but if you think you are up to the challenge of coloring my work then feel free to send a message through the contact page.

I have a comic that I'd like published, can Jesse help me do that?
Not at this time. Eventually I'd like to expand to producing original series from outside creative teams, but for now I'm focusing exclusively on my own projects.
I produce merchandise and I'd love to license Jesse's artwork for my products...?
