Every day, there are more and more posts on here seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? …none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on here to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as there are professional illustrators. There are eleven times as many certified mechanics. There are SEVENTY times as many people in the IT field.
So, given that they are less rare, and therefore less in demand, would it make sense to ask your mechanic to work on your car for free? Woul

This is not my artwork!:

This is a collection of images that I've found visually inspiring as well as just purely awesome.


Hey all, I've been focusing mostly on trying to spread out my artwork. So I've now got a page on facebook, a twitter, an instagram (which connects to twitter), and have been working on my own website at which is more a blog of events, pieces, and various projects. So I apologize that I've3 not been on deviantart much lately.

the site is

Be sure to check it out and I'll do my best to be sure to upload more of the current stuff on here as well. Thanks.

Illustrator / Visual Creator

If there is anything that involves manually working an idea into a visual piece of work, chances are I'm down to give it a try.

Experimental process is what most of my work comes from, I start sketching thoughts and build them into an image, then as I work on the image the visuals continue to evolve and change as it goes.

Art is my expression. Any questions or comments please feel free to send my way.

To Purchase original work or to commission me for a project, please send an email to my account listed below with the title of work you are referring to. I will respond with availability of the specified piece(s) as well as the current asking price. Some works may be negotiable.
