My Bio
Currently living in North Carolina

I grew up in south east Texas.

I work mostly with traditional media, but I experiment with digital now and then. Traditional artwork is my own preference. I like to get comments on my work. Especially if you have caught one of the cryptic religious, scientific, or esoteric messages that I like to hide in my drawings. There is something symbolic or deeper in everything I post and it's fun to find things in other people's art.

I will try to reply to any questions and welcome sharing advice and techniques.

My work is mostly based on my world that I have created. Involving my original places and characters. I hope you enjoy.

If I've left you a llama it's because I like your gallery. I just like to check and make sure your account is still active before giving you a watch.

I really like your drawings, they are suuuper detailed! I am many hours does it take to finish one piece?

They take me a long time, it is hard to say how long exactly because I usually keep several different pictures going at the same time and switch back and forth between them.

Many thanks for collecting!Nod
