Show MoreI take artistic commissions of all sorts: portraits, still life, boats, illustration (covers as well as complete interior illustrations), board games, character design and concept art, landscapes, art-cetera–to name a few. I work in most two-dimensional media. If you have an idea and are looking for an artist to implement it, I would be glad to discuss your ideas and give you an estimate.
