Service Description

I create custom illustrations with pen, ink, and other media. I'm willing to work with any subject, but I especially enjoy natural, decorative, and mythic themes. I have a unique graphic style, beginning with classic line drawing technique and finishing with high contrast (black and white) or bold color.

Besides illustration for print, I'm also happy to create custom original art or designs for other purposes.
