Perhaps you've seen my work on QRZ.com, social media and YouTube, in K9YA Telegraph eZine, and maybe in your mailbox. I've drawn QSL art for over 150 operators worldwide.
My logos have gone on far-out Dxpeditions, like the 2016 VKØEK mission to Heard Island, and to the Cocos Islands with Norway's uber stylin' DxDippers.
From the KB6NU No Nonsense ham study guide series, marketing materials for Begali Keys and Alpha Amplifiers to special awards for organizations like the World Radiosport Team Championship, for almost a decade now, I've been tapped by ham movers and shakers for authentic radio graphics.
Chances are, you've seen my work at Dayton/Zenia, Visalia, Friedrichshafen, and the Orlando Hamcation, among other places gaddabout hams meet and greet. That's the kind of specialized experience I can bring to what you have in mind.
I generally charge $200 inclusive for front side QSL art, logos, illustrations and fun graphics Depending on work involved, it might be more, but that's very seldom the case and I'll honor my up front estimate. That's PayPal only, but you don't need an account, PayPal accepts major credit cards. And most important to know, printing is up to you. More about this below.
No obligation, no desposit wanted to be on my waiting list. When I can actually start your job, I'll send you a PayPal invoice for $50 up front. That paid, we'll go back and forth on email with mockups until we settle on a provisional design. When all is completed to your satisfaction, I'll send another PayPal invoice for the balance, typically $150. Along with a printer-ready high-resolution image file of your design via my file service Hightail.com, I'll send you a signed 8.5 x 11 photoprint of our collaboration postpaid in a nice, sturdy tube via USPS.
A note about printing. QSL printers are best set up to customize your card back info and report forms. My recommended printer is KB3IFH QSL Cards and I'm happy to forward a copy of your design file to Randy. He does great work at fair prices with outstanding customer service. Of course, you're welcome to use whomever you wish. I receive no benefit no matter who prints your cards. My designs have been successfully printed by QSL specialists worldwide.
Thanks for your interest. See what I might draw for you and drop me a line. Consultations always free.
I've created over 150 custom QSL designs for hams who wanted a look all their own.
International DXpeditions, amateur radio clubs, organizations and businesses are represented by my logo designs.

Popular ham authors including ARRL contributing editor Ward Silver NØAX and No Nonsense License Study Guide author Dan Romanchik KB6NU selected me to create book covers and illustrations.
all-occasion fun graphics
I also draw custom cartoon art for clubs, organizations and individuals celebrating achievements and special events – including birthdays and anniversaries, even informal wedding invitations! Most often these are fun portraits such as this from a series of eight awards commissioned by World Radiosport Team Championship recognizing key members of the WRTC 2014 support team.
