is creating Art and Writing

After several decades as a commercial illustrator, spending nearly all of my available time helping to realize and depict my clients' visions, I feel a deep desire to create more art and writing of my own--designed, directed, edited and published by no one but myself. I will be launching this new epic in my life with an online, illustrated serial called TWICE, in June of 2019, and have several other personal projects planned from there. To do any of this, I am going to need some assistance from others who would like to see what I imagine when no one is looking over my shoulder and telling me what to draw or write instead. My most popular work has always been personal work. I invite you to help me make that work the greater rather than the rarer portion of my product as both artist and writer. Thanks for joining me in this adventure!
