-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Temporary lack of overseas transactions while a new payment system is set up. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Hi there I live in West Australia, my main income is as an artist for just about anything, i do alot of digital design and digital art, using vector line art through to tablet based mediums. I design things from adverts to t-shirts, and stencils. Time = to complexicity. I can do more than digital mediums but I cant provide my own tools, so if you have the gear and are Perth based i have the talent. My photo manipulation skills are also quite good, but again the more detail and perfection there is needed the more time is required. My tools at the moment are limited, so as i grow i'll get faster. e-mail is required for quotes and communications. Address is required for postage. (postage may change the price)

For as long as I remember I have loved to draw and be creative. It is so satisfying having a blank piece of paper and a fine line pen in front of me, and creating something out of nothing. Many of my Illustrations normally have a story behind them, but most of the time I normally just draw the most random things and they normally tend to be some of my best work. I have quite an unusual style of drawing, most of the tie they are dark, weird, surreal.
