Hi Friends, 
Thank you for stopping by!

I want to give you a life filled with wildlife and wonders. 

I'm a scientific illustrator and creature artist. I’m also the author and illustrator of Seen and Unseen: Observations in the Panama Wilderness by Sam Hildebrand. With your help; I think we will be able to fill this world with all manner of beasts.

(Update Feb. 2018) Seen and Unseen is fully written and fully illustrated! 
Download it FREE here or buy a physical copy here

It’s a historical fiction set deep in the Panamanian rainforest. Follow Sam Hildebrand, an ichthyologist, during his harrowing adventure through mud and magic, as he tries to complete the 1911 Smithsonian Biological survey.


I also want to make Scientific Illustrations for you. 
If you're an animal lover, then you'll like these images. I'm focused on the anatomy of living things, usually tetrapods, but a few invertebrates might slip in from time to time.



 I love doing studies of the musculoskeletal system and drawing real animals in general. I sketch at zoos and aquariums a lot and my patrons are always welcome to attend



Finally, I'd like to make Imaginary Creatures for you. 

Need a monster for a campaign or love the extraordinary? I think you'll like these images. Real animals are the best bases for all kinds of monsters and I love mixing animals together to see what beasts I can create. 

This patreon is serving as a means to help pay the rent while I make any beast your heart desires. The closer we get to paying my rent, the more I want to give away here: epic monsters, detailed anatomy studies, adorable bunnies, maybe even entire fantasy worlds. As always, I will be producing a lot of free content for this project which you can see on:

For those who are willing to support me here, there will be all sorts of special treats for you. 


We have a new goal: A full rent payment.
First Monday Monsters!
*Don't worry, my sciart buddies, I'll be doing animal studies for these as well.
