"ATTENTION, TROOPS! You have found a "military artist" ( Cartoon Bill" ) that specializes in PCS gifts...all are 100% ORIGINAL, created from photos provided by you.
"Cartoon Bill" Crowley CREATES ORIGINAL PCS GIFTS . Hand-drawn and hand-painted ... Your gift will be one that will "never be forgotten". So, contact "Cartoon Bill" soon. Before starting on creating the gift, Bill needs to know the (1) person's first name or nickname ( that is to appear on the artwork ). (2) photo or photos of the person, unit patch if you want it in the drawing, (3) some personality quirks, favorite expressions, favorite sports team, etc., etc. ..anything to make it a really unique and personal gift. All gifts are painted in watercolor and are easy to frame. Don't hesitate to inquire. Personal note: "Very recently I received a message requesting TWO PCS gifts for members about to leave the unit. The message stated that "last year you created several "caricature PCS gifts" for us and they were such a big hit that we have decided to start a tradition in our unit! We will be giving PCS gifts created by "Cartoon Bill" each time. They are fun and funny and very personal. Always a HIT!!!" HOORAY! How 'bout that!!! COOL!!! HINT: Start a similar tradition in your unit...because, frankly, everyone LOVES getting gifts that are made especially for them and are totally ORIGINAL!!! That's what I do...and love it!!!
NEW! NEW! Why not give either a cartoon of the children...OR...a pencil portrait drawn from photos??!! Also, if requested, I'll leave room on the drawing paper for the child or children to write messages! PERSONAL NOTE: I've never liked the phrase "military brats" Let's refer to them as what they are...they're your children or his or her children...and when deployed, the children really miss their parents. And visa versa. A pencil portrait will be life-like and sensitive. The cartoon version will be "fun to look at". I'll do my best for every request, I assure you. Bill Crowley, artist
"Are you looking for a PCS gift that you would be proud to give to someone??? A gift that "will always be remembered."?? Well "Holy ABUs!!! We found the right artist!!! Let's have "Cartoon Bill" create the PCS gift!!!"
ORIGINAL hand-drawn, hand-painted PCS GIFTS are my specialty. And they are "Made in USA" by an American. ADD humor to your next PCS gift. It will be the one gift that "will never be forgotten"!
NOTE: if you are stationed in the Colorado Springs, CO area, stop by my studio in the center of OLD COLORADO CITY...by appointment only, however, because I'm always in and out daily and don't want to miss you. Thank You.
