Albino Llama: Llamas are awesome! (69)
My Bio

I'm a self-taught artist semi-available for fine-art commissions and illustration work. Watercolor, soft pastels, oil pastels, charcoal, oil paint, acrylics, egg tempera, ink, graphite, and digital work are all fun and I generally pick whichever medium best suits the subject.

My work has appeared on the cover of Star Line magazine, in official lore for the MassiveCraft gaming community, and my custom Painter brushes were featured by Imagine FX. My illustrations may currently be found on nationally distributed product packaging for the General Pencil Company.

In addition to visual art, I enjoy fiction writing, photography, old cameras, cycling, and tea. I live in Connecticut with my wife, an amazing artist, and our heterochromic dog.

For frequent updates and time-lapse videos be sure to join me on TikTok, Sktchy, or Instagram. I'm leversandpulleys there as well.

Thanks again. Regarding the commission, do consider adding some stuff to Sktchy, as that's where I pull my non-commission references from. So I can't make any guarantees, but there's always a chance I will draw something for free after looking at whatever photos you share. If you haven't heard of Sktchy, it's an iOS app where people post photos and artists paint or draw using those photos as a reference and then upload the finished results to Sktchy to show off to the artist and the rest of the world. It's like redditgetsdrawn for iOS.

You'll see me there as user Craig Houghton.

And, thanks again!
