I've always loved illustration, since I first put Crayola to paper. Despite this, I did not pursue it as a career and rather went into construction, while still drawing on the side.
When the company I was working for got sold, I decided to start studying and illustrating full time, starting with local kids books and private commissions.

In 2011 I was diagnosed with cancer, which I fought and beat with surgery, chemo and lots of love and support from friends and family. In 2014 my wife and I had a little baby girl.
These days I illustrate covers and role playing pen and paper games, which I love.

I unfortunately don't have many clients or opportunities here in SA. Almost all my clients are overseas, thankfully my local bank uses Paypal which made a huge difference to my career.

I've been fortunate enough to be able to provide a living for myself, my wife (who works full time) and our little daughter. I love being able to draw, to create and make myself available to the great publishers and writers I know as an affordable, quality source of art for their own creations.

Patreon would allow me to create for others, bring my visions to life and hopefully save for family emergencies and our big plan to seek a new life abroad.

Using this as an added income will allow me to explore new avenues of art, including game art, animation and video creation!

I would also like this Patreon to help me fund a series of world books I am creating. Containing full color paintings of monsters and people as well as maps and diagrams. The books will be themed to locations and the beasties you may find there. I'm starting with The Forest! Please join me on my journey and check out the process and even become a part of it!

I love roleplaying games and accessories. Now thanks to the internet and digital media all my ideas can be created and shared. They can take quite some time to work on, especially as I'd like to create a lot of variety and options for potential players. Having a milestone reached will allow me to take the time to start turning this project into a viable reality and carry on providing both personal and custom products.
