Hey folks! It's time for a little self-advertisement.

I'm in the midst of...well, let's call it a "transitional period" in my career. Long story short, I'm in a position to be a little worried about cash-flow for a bit. For this reason, I'm going to be more aggressively pursuing commissions in the next few months.

To that end: Do you have a tattoo design that you've been thinking about, but don't know quite how to visualize? Do you have a blank space on your wall that you'd just love to fill with some traditional Celtic or Norse art? Is your mom's birthday coming up soon? Send me a message! I'm open for business, and very happy to work with you on what you might like!

(I'd also appreciate it if you'd share this call with your friends! Thanks, good people! <3)

I'm an artist, I guess. Actually, most of the time I'm a graduate student, pursuing my doctorate in Sociology. I have a lot of fun with it. But I also can't seem to stay away from art, and it's been taking up more and more of my time.
I'm also a husband, a son, a brother, a friend to humans and animals, a music-lover, a beard enthusiast, and an all-purpose nerd.
I like other people. Feel free to strike up a conversation sometime.

Hey folks!  I'm happy to announce, in a little less than three weeks, I'll be doing an art show featuring ten brand new pieces and a bunch of old favorites here in Champaign, Illinois!  Better yet, I will be showing alongside my talented and incomparably cool sister, Kate Cragoe!  If you're in the area, you should come by.  If you miss the opening but still want to see the art, it'll be in the Springer Cultural Center gallery until the first week of December.

Here's the Facebook event page: Sibling Rivalries

Basic info on the show:
In March of 2014, Caitlin Lill (Nick's wife) issued Nick and Kate a challenge: make ten pieces of art, each creating an interpretation around the same ten themes. Acting as the "family curator," Caitlin will explore the striking similarities and hilarious differences between the artistic kin. Their assigned themes were: 

- Futuristic
- Chimera
- Gaudy
- Calligraphy
- Minimal
- Carnival
- Wilderness
- Ocean Dwellers
- Brother/Sister
- Home

Nick and Katie's twenty theme pieces will come together in a show called ***Sibling Rivalries*** at the Champaign Park District Springer Cultural Center, running 10/16-12/4. 

Join us for an artists reception on 10/16 from 5:30-7:30pm. Light refreshments will be provided.

You're an inspiration. I've only been drawing celtic themed pics and knots for a year and after seeing your gallery it makes want to go harder.

Your welcome for the watch :) I'm in the market for a Celtic quarter sleeve incorporating the Valknut, the the Aetts, Odin's ravens and wolves and Yggdrasil. I was thinking of having the wolves under the branches with the ravens and Valknut in the branches and the Aetts around the Valknut. How much do you think that would cost

Hard to say.  Depending on the level of detail, necessary revisions, color, etc., I'd normally charge somewhere between $120-220 (USD) for something like that.
