Hi, This is my gallery. I draw for fun and occasionally for money. The drawings posted here on this website are not my best work by any stretch of the imagination, but are the only ones that fit the fantasy/sci-fi theme of Elfwood. I work full time for a paralegal company that does the footwork for personal injury attorneys. I like to draw just about everything, and as you can probably tell, I have a strong comic-book style, having even worked freelance for various comic book companies including Innovation Comics, Epic, and Hero Comics at one time or another in the distant past. Recently I haven't had the time to take on any new commisions, be it either professional or personal, but I'm hoping this will someday change. The artists who's work I admire are Alex Ross, Clyde Caldwell, Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri, Keith Parkinson, Alphonso Azpiri, Milo Manara, Steve Epting, Boris Vallejo, Alan Davis, and Greg Hildebrandt. As age creeps up on me I find myself more and more interested in researching world history, with politics being yet another hobby of mine, as sometimes my rants in the comments area below will attest. I enjoy politcal debate, and I think it was Voltaire who summed up my beliefs most eloquently; 'I may not agree with what you say but I will fight to the death to let you say it.' In other words, politcal correctness is not my style. As with my artwork, you may like what I draw, you may hate what I draw, but please at least be courteous and mature in your comments. How hard is it to be nice? Also, I find it annoying when people complain about *what* I draw. If you don't like what you see, move along to another gallery. It really is that simple.
