Stay tuned on new work, availability for private commissions, Magic and Book signings, workshops, and any all around nerdly directions I might be on. Just not incentive enough?
I've felt extraordinarily fortunate for the opportunities allowed me in this short life, so in an effort to pay it forward, and bring a couple more random acts of kindness to the Sphere, I've been giving away free annual prizes to members of this mailer!
• 8.5 x 11 prints
• Sketched Magic the Gathering Artist Proofs
• Copies of my book Fantasy Genesis Characters
Winners pick 1 of my 4 charities, I donate to that charity! The donations aren't a lot, but I'd like to think it makes this world a slightly more peaceable, tolerant, and sustainable place to rest our bones.
