Service Description

I believe if you are going to do something with your heart... you'd better do it extremely well. I strived for years slaving away relentlessly at a job that put food on the table and provided shelter for my wife and kids, but it never gave anything back besides money... My passion is illustration, and I would like it to be my life if I can earn a living doing it, and still provide for my family. I try to teach my children to reach for their dreams, but until now, I haven't been reaching for mine... I don't want to be a hypocrite, so allow me not to... Hire me. The few uploaded pictures on my profile only touch on a small part of my insanity.
