Drawing is my passion. My mainstream is comic art, but I can do various types of art. I created the logo for CORE in Goldsboro, NC. I'm not much of a talker, but when it comes to creating art for someone, I'll ask what needs to be done and do it. I have always seemed to please the people who wants my services.

Howdy! I'm Daniel Foster, and I provide native U.S. English language writing & editing. I specialize in working with non-English speaking clients. I also love working on things of a dark/bizarre nature. Why me? In addition to a natural tendency for what is often described as a, "frustrating obsession with grammar," I bring a diverse experiential background to bear in my work. I've been a mortician, a stand-up comic, a government slog, a salesperson, and more. Any technical writer can Google grammar rules. But not anyone can write you a work-safe joke about death....
