Hello Everyone! I'm new here, just joined. Still new to all these forums. As I hardly spend enough time on the computer. Sometimes it can be very confusing. But I know I need to get my artwork out there. Anyway, I'm a self taught artist. I have been painting for a very long time. As I got older, I started to paint murals and do custom faux finishes in peoples home. Then I was approached several months ago to illustrate a book. I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would illustrate a book. The book is called, "The Present Monster" and it will be out this coming Christmas. I can't wait. I will be illustrating 5 other books as well from the same Author. I do have several projects lined up. I love Fairys, and dark art. And I'm a huge fan of Tim Burton. I would love to be on his team of artists.
