Wish You Were Here!

yellowstone

I’m very proud of my latest custom portrait. It features an amphibian riding couple and their dogs in period clothing. This one is set in the backdrop of the wondrous thermal features of Yellowstone National Park!

Max and Ruby

This is my latest pet commission and the first one I’ve done of cats.  “Max and Ruby” were very well-loved kitties.

Latest Portrait Commission

I created this custom portrait for a family in Tucson, AZ.  I’ve been doing these collaborative illustrations for the last 5 years and I now have about 20.  It’s fun working with families and learning about their lives, interests and personalities, as well as having the challenge of trying to capture their physical characteristics. I’ve also started doing some custom pet portraits.  Besides appearing in different fantasy landscapes, my clients have chosen to have themselves depicted as astronauts, pirates, circus performers, toys, royalty and more…

The final image is printed on archival fine art paper at 13×19″ and signed.
