My Bio
Hello - and thanks for stopping by!

I'm a commercial artist by trade, but most of what is going to appear in my gallery here will be my own personal artwork.

In part that's due to "non disclosure" agreements relating to most of my professional work. But mostly it's because I am happy to find a home for images created purely for pleasure - or as learning exercises.

For those who are curious about my professional history, the following link is a fair overview: www.imdb.com/name/nm0121123/

To me this gallery presents an opportunity for learning and trying different things. It is really a laboratory, not a portfolio - so you can expect to see some "interesting failures" in the mix :)

If you look through my "Favorites" folder, you may notice it's somewhat eclectic. I tend to respond to an image for any number of reasons - not limited to pure technical skill. I'm always receptive to an interesting idea or design for its own sake :)

I would like to say "thank you" to everyone who has a look at the gallery, and especially to those who leave comments, pick an image as a favorite, or add me to their "watch" list.

I will do my best to respond to any messages - to the best of my ability :)

Nice to meet you, Mr. Burg.
Love your work!!!

Truly inspiring...

I'm a fan.
Hello dear artist, just a pencil and a few lines would be more than enough, looking forward to see more of your work. Thank you kindly.
Many thanks for the watch and fave. It's quite honor coming from you. I have books in my home featuring your concept art for crying out loud! :-)
