I am a professional museum artist, designer, and illustrator specializing in wildlife and paleo art, as well as large-scale traditional and digital murals and historical reconstructions. Currently, I work as a principal artist, fabricator, art director and designer at Blue Rhino Studio (www.rhinocentral.com), a prominent museum art design and fabrication studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I still produce commissioned illustrations, paintings, and large-scale murals for a select group of clients and organizations.

So, in spite of popular opinion, I am not actually dead.
I understand that I haven't really posted here since 2007, and that you DO NOT do that online these days, and I would like to sincerely apologize to those of you who legitimately worried about me.
To try to explain something complicated simply: we'll just go with the simple fact that during my senior year at RISD, I underwent a rather large "course correction," during which I changed my major focus from concept or fantasy illustration to academic and informative illustration (with a focus on natural history) and museum art fabrication.

Oh, and my hits went over 30k. WOW. O_O
I set up a print account, due to many requests and also because Balaa got me hooked on having a subscription, and it just expired. SO you can now order high resolution reproductions (and various other goodies) of Elvira's Puppy, In the Canopy, When You're Strange, Mean Girls, PREZ, and Kemsa.
This is a bit of an experiment for me, so please place your orders! :)
I'd also be interested to hear if anyone wants one of the other pieces offered as a print. I just took a selection of the most popular ones, but if there are any other requested prints, just let me know.
Hey, do you know the person who made this tutorial? Just asking, since I really want to contact them and thank them for creating such a great resource! And thank you, too, for creating art that contributed to my understanding and continuing study of art!
