#44 SOME UNUSUAL AND USUAL ILLUSTRATIONS, PART 3

I have enjoyed sharing about my illustration career. On this blog there are already over 1,500 images. I still have many projects remaining that I could write about.

#34 VERSATILITY WAS MY STYLE

I’ve been sharing a lot of different categories of illustrations that I’ve done over my career. Of course, I still have a lot of paintings left. I decided I’d categorize the ones for this particular post as the illustrations where I needed to do something other than usual photorealism.
