Said "My "Freelanced" experience so far. Though I have met several talented, inspirational artists, I question the usefulness of this site. I have yet to be hired, jobs applied for - even with accompanied follow up - never pan out. Rarely does the client reply/follow through, and it seems the client is not hiring but soliciting concepts as though it's a competition with nobody getting paid. It's my understanding that this site is a "work for hire". Providing concepts without a contract/purchase order/written agreement is a waste of billable time. Any time invested in a project should be billable. Isn't that the point? If your a starving artist it's your own fault. Get business savvy! You want to eat, have gas money, entertainment, buy art supplies, replace your wardrobe... that's going to cost you. So unless you have a day job that pays for that stuff, you better guard your time and stand your ground. No more free work. The idea is to get hired. If you want to compete go to designcrowd."

16 x 20 three subject portrait. Common challenge is having three photo references with different light sources. I neglected to scan in two of the reference photos so I have left out the images for comparison.

16 x 20, four subjects. Sample of "In Loving Memory" The prominent subject lost his life in a car accident. The inset was taken from a photo of the main subject and his two siblings. Common challenge is not having a good photo reference. Here I took two photos of the main subject to create an accurate likeness.

About Me:
Joe, who was Instructed at a very young age by his mother and pastel portrait artist Jacquelyn Naimo, is celebrating his fortieth year as a portrait artist. Acquiring his first commission at age twelve, portraits became a means for providing and a venue to exercise his natural drawing skills. Coming from a family of artists, the third sibling to graduate from Kendall, Joe developed his own specialized niche as a graphic designer with the exceptional ability to learn and master design software applications. While highly regarded by his peers for his wide spectrum of skills, knowledge and talents, Joe’s thirst for more seems unquenchable.

Joe, lives in Grand Rapids, MI, is married with four children and two grandchildren. He prefers trail running over distance running with his dog...
