Fine Art America is sponsoring a contest and the winner will have their work featured on a billboard(s) in Los Angeles. I had to pick three so I went with a wide scope. Here are the three paintings I have submitted. If you'd be so kind to vote on them I'd appreciate it. :) You can vote multiple times and on all of them if you want. I don't actually win anything other than exposure as my name and artwork will be on the billboard(s) in LA, sometimes that's enough for opportunities to open up. Each image has to receive 250 votes to advance to the next round. You have my gratitude!

I get inquiries and requests to do custom work from a lot of different sources. I just wanted to create this journal and pin it to my profile page so I don't have to respond to the same questions that I tend to get frequently.
I get asked a lot, and I mean A LOT to do free work. While I'm no stranger to free work (Heck I donated close to 10 large paintings and prints to charities last year) and when I offer to paint without pay it's because it's a gift from me and it means something. Please don't ask me to do free work, if I see your project and want to donate my time to it I will approach you. I have never, ever EVER asked someo
I recently was asked for my Superman artwork to be featured in a documentary called "Look To The Sky", the request was from Brett Culp who also created "Legends of the Knight". You can view this documentary on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu...etc, I have to say I was really impressed with the quality, music, stories and emotions the film stirred in me. It's definitely a good watch, it'll leave you thinking about what you're doing with your gifts and how you're helping those around you. We truly are bombarded with negativity in this world, so it's important to see the good to restore hope.
Legends of the Knight filmed in over 100 cities and raised $7
There's been a lot going on this year with my artwork, I was in Vogue Magazine, licensed artwork to Cinemax on a show called Banshee, I received South Dakota's Artist of the year from "Exploring Tosca" magazine, and just recently my work is about to be featured on a documentary by Brett Culp titled "Look to the Sky". http://www.risinghero.org/#1
I'm making small steps towards a better art career but I still feel at times I'm not doing enough, there's always another level of excellence in pretty much all that we do. Call it human nature I guess, I saw an illustration one time that defined this perfectly. It was of a woman standing at the peak
I was recently asked to be a featured artist for ArtRage (https://www.deviantart.com/artrage), every painting done in this article was created with their product. This is a product I've used since the first release and will continue to use due to the way it mimics traditional mediums. You can view the interview here:
A lot of people seem to shy away from this product for professional use from the $60 price tag. Which I find odd, because since when do we need to pay $500+ for something to produce professional work. I've seen amazing artists have complete art shows with artwork that were created with crayons. And how much a
