Last update: 25 March 2023. I have prints available for most of my artwork. PSA: I do not mint or sell NFTs, and I do not have plans to do so at this time. If you see my artwork on any NFT-oriented website, it has been posted without my knowledge or consent. I make my prints with an Epson P800 Surecolor printer, and I have some left over from my Epson 2200. The ink these printers use is archival, and the photo paper is acid-free. If the prints are kept dry and out of direct sunlight, they will last at least eighty years. My prints are all limited editions, and are numbered in series of either 50 or 150. Each print will be signed and numbered. All prints are matted, and the measurements below represent the mat size, not the image size. The image size will vary from title to title, but will be of a size appropriate to the matting. The mats are designed to work with standard American frame sizes. All matted prints are in protective plastic art bags. Not all sizes are available

Let me make a new design for you instead. :bulletyellow: I reserve the right to decline a commission for any reason. If I decline a commission, it will be before any work is started. :bulletblue: I will not stop work on an active commission unless I am unable to communicate with you. :bulletblue: I will share progress with you as I work on your project. These progress shots, and the final image, will not be shown online before the project is in your hands. :bulletgreen: Paypal is my preferred method of payment. I will send
