My Bio
Greetings! I am a freelance illustrator/artist from Boston, much of my work falls into the fantasy/games genre, with a specialty of H.P. Lovecraft inspired art. I've been enjoying music illustration (CDs, LPs and the like) recently and would welcome more of it.

Outside of illustrating I have been learning to carve wood and have really been enjoying it!

Current Residence: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Other Interests
Painting, miniature modeling, guitars, motorcycling, wildlife, music.....
Another new video, in it you can watch me paint a 12x16" acrylic illustration for the Call of Cthulhu role playing game. I narrate with commentary. please click here:

Eat my short!

I've just started experimenting with time-lapse videos of myself making art. This is my first Youtube short: I am open to suggestions! Right now, the challenge seems to find the right balance between a good angle and lighting vs a setup which does not hinder my ability to work. I also look to do videos for my wood carving as well, which would have a different set of dynamics to contend with. Wish me luck! ;)

I have noticed a trend in recent deviations, less and less description of people's work... often with no description or explanation at all. Why did you make this piece? Was it for a job... then, what was it and for whom? What is the medium and dimensions? What was your experience like to make it? I find that when people write nothing at all I feel a bit detached and less interested in the piece if the submitter had no interest in the submission process. It feels like they don't care about it, so why should I? Come on people, you put a lot of work into your art, help us appreciate your efforts! I guess I shouldn't make this any longer, as I know people are turned off by the idea of reading as well. *sigh*
