This feels like a bit of a waste since people never notice where I write that I'm not taking commissions and still ask. However I want to make it abundantly clear where I stand on the latest thing, as if the title didn't give it away already - I am absolutely, unwaveringly against anything at all to do with NFTs. They are a scam, the community and ethics behind them are vile and when I refuse to do them people steal my art anyway to mint as NFTs. Frankly the whole concept is a disease and anyone who so much as mentions NFTs in my DMs is getting instantly blocked. (And if anyone thinks I "don't get it" and is preparing to type out a detailed explanation of how their disruptive potential is ushering in a new world of exciting prospects, may I instead request that you kindly fill your shoes with concrete mix and jump off a cliff into the ocean, thank you.)

TL;DR - Not taking on any commissions right now. Will make a new post when I am free to do some. Wow, hello! It's been a while since I've posted here. How's it going? I've been getting quite a lot of DMs regarding potential commissions. I'm really very appreciative of you all for asking, but I'm afraid I'm an exceptionally busy man nowadays. I am running at full capacity at my main freelance jobs and with outside projects. I'm not really looking to take on any commissions either now or the foreseeable future. Of course things do change and the circumstances fluctuate all the time, so when I'm free to I will update and let you lovely lot know that it's okay to make requests. Right now I'm getting quite a lot of commission requests (hence this post) so hopefully people do read it before sending a DM asking for one. Any further DMs inquiring about commissions will most likely be ignored. So, sorry about that. Take care and make sure you practice your social distancing! And wash your

Thanks to the universe for giving me a gif in the recommendations with how rex bully other dinosaurs. Thanks to this masterpiece, I found an artist with such wonderful works...Lesser dog

Compliments of the season from a fellow UK based, left-handed game writing artist! Really liking what I've seen of your portfolio; your pixel art skills are phenomenal. I hope one day I can say the same about mine, but I'm sure I'll never reach your level! :)

Kudos on your taste in games, too - it's always nice to meet a fellow Monkey Island fan. I saw on your CV that you're involved in the industry, which is great - I think that's where you belong. Your art deserves so much more than just to be seen on a visual level - it's awesome that you can actually take control of it, and see it moving around the screen!

EDIT: I had no idea you worked on Blade Strangers - very cool! I'm a big fan of fighting games, and the art style for it really resonated with me.

Anyway, keep up the great work; you're a very talented soul, and certainly someone to aspire to. I'll raise a mug (of tea) in your honour - an early happy new year to you, sir! :)

Wow, thank you very much friend! That's very kind of you.

amazed with your work

best pixel-art i have ever seen
