A self portrait of the artist in front of the computer, working.

My first website was on geocities, in the early autumn of 1997. Since then, I have continuously had my artwork displayed online - always updating, always expanding. I have been pursuing my passion as an illustrator for almost two decades now. My work is character heavy, frequently emotional, and packed with detail. I love anime, fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, horror, and supernatural "other".

Can I use your artwork for my website/school project/magazine/tattoo?
Almost certainly yes, but I ask that you email me and get my permission first, as some of this work has been on commission or otherwise for hire, and I do not have full rights to allow you to use it. If you would like to use it on a website, please make sure to include a link in your query. As for tattoos - go right ahead and be sure to send me pictures!

What do you use to create your artwork?
Nearly all of the pencil drawings are done with my trusty old mechanical pencil loaded with HB leads and half a dozen different kinds of erasers. Those form the base for most of my digitally painted works as well. Current colored pieces are done in Adobe Photoshop or Corel Painter with a Wacom Cintiq 12WX. Previously, I have worked in Photoshop CS2, Photoshop 5.5, Paintshop Pro 6, and Painter Classic, using my Wacom Intuos medium and Wacom Graphire small.

How can I help support this website and the artist behind it?
Other than purchases through my shop, Redbubble, and Etsy, you can set up a recurring monthly donation through Patreon or a single time donation through Ko-Fi. If that's not enough, there's always my wish list if you want to really make my day!

Do you take commissions?
Yes! You can find more information in the shop.
