All commissions are closed henceforth. I'm only posting this to avoid any misunderstandings in the future. I meant to do this earlier, but, I doubt anyone has noticed anything...But, now, there are a few DA members who have commissioned me in the past, plus anyone new, having thoughts or plans for commissions here...
I've successfully made the transition into retirement, during 2017. There's too much personal detail to mention here, as to why now and what happened...
One big advantage, is I'm no longer restricted by financial needs, and, part of the pressure was to expand into other media, such as Patreon, Instagram, Tumblr, or Facebook. I was never much of a salesman (I never did get a facebook page, and never will), so that burden is lifted there as well.
I won't be getting involved with future trends. I know anime, superheros, and games are still popular, and will continue to be. There is a place for up-and-coming artists today! I'm just not in the position to give advice, or care about what sells, or popularity, anymore.
I was basically a story illustrator. That's my training (BFA, Art Center, 1982) The work, and stories are here to see.
I just happened to love anime as well as Sci-Fi, and do fanart, beginning in 2000. That fact keeps me here, as it still gets most of the attention (the girl subjects have something to do with it, I'm sure).
I can't guarantee I'll post any future art regularly. It's one day at a time for me. That's been the case for 35 professional years.
The only personal thing I'll say, in closing, is the change has nothing to do with health issues.
