I was about to ask you where to find this in your gallery! I found it in the magazine recently while it was sitting on a book exchange shelf in one of the lounge-type areas on campus and was like, 'wait, this art looks familiar...' before I looked down and found your name in the byline. I like it! Though it does seem a little imbalanced with so much going on at the bottom and not a lot at the top of the illustration.

We need an artist to do an Ancient Arab culture scene for our FaceBook game.

We are willing to pay 50% upfront after approving a rough sketch and the last 50% when you are finished.

Here are the details:[link]

That looks amazing. I'm actually subscribed to Realms of Fantasy, just renewed it recently. Can't wait for the next issue now. Do you do work for them often?

Yeah, they mentioned that in one of the letters that they sent me. Said that the management change was necessary in order to keep the magazine going. They didn't explain why though. Hope they still hire you. Good luck.

Yes, I do illustrations for them every few issues. They've just changed management though, so I don't know how often the new art director will be assigning me work, we'll see.

Pretty much just watercolors these days for color.

for whateve reason I never could get the hang of water colours... when I paint I seem to gravitate to acrylics... cheap, and easily over laid with other media... sad that expression boils down to economics

wow this is so beautiful. i love to see work done in traditional medium because it creates a certain atmosphere that can't be achieved with digital. like the textures in this are very nice. lovely work.

you never fail to take my breath away! I love the bird..It reminds me of a story I heard ..about a wind up Nightingale in a cage that sang for the Emperor and he sadly liked it better than the real Nightingales! Anyway ..that's what I thought of when I saw your painting! Sigh!@!!
