I really like the contrast between how pale, solid (and calm) Aragorn is, compared to the storm of barely-controlled nightmares at his ...

Firstly, thank you, I'm genuinely flattered you'd want me to help bring your creation to life, it's a great compliment. But to get a quick idea on whether I'll be able to say 'yes' or 'no' to your request, see below:

If it's a commercial project (and I mean contracts on headed paper) then I'll consider it if my timetable allows; particularly if it's related to the subjects I've drawn and posted here: (Elves, vampires, mythological or historical nonsense, etc.)

But personal commissions, I'm already booked for those for the next two years, and probably won't accept anymore at this time, sorry.

If you want me to work on your project in exchange for glory and exposure, then your project better be The Silmarillion. (Or, to be a bit broader, anything for Tolkien or Susanna Clarke.) But otherwise (like any other full-time professional) I expect to be paid in actual money: money's useful, you can swap it for food and electricity bills, it's handy that way. :)

If however you just have suggestions for things you'd like to see me draw, suggest it anyway! :D  Chances are (unless it's Tolkien / Clarke / Gaiman / Pratchett / Patrick O'Brian / or a few select animes) it'll never happen, but I'm always interested to hear suggestions. ♥


Frodo and Gandalf

'I wish it need not have happened in my time,' said Frodo.
'So do I,' said Gandalf, 'and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide.
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.'

From The Fellowship of the Ring (chapter 'Shadow of the Past') by JRR Tolkien.

The famous words of comfort and wisdom spoken by Gandalf to Frodo (book version).
