This is the home of Berkley Illustration, aka Ryan and Lucy Berkley of Portland, Oregon. Ryan is the crazy talented self-taught artist and Lucy is the storywriter/customer services/computery person behind the scenes. (Lucy writes the bios so she's allowed to be so boastful about Ryan's talents!)
In case you are curious sort, here is the background story on the animal portraits:
Ryan started drawing animal portraits in April of 2006 for the first Crafty Wonderland art and craft show in Portland (www.craftywonderland.com). We decided to do an "ancestor theme" for our booth inspired by our love of animals and also 'old-timey' portraiture. The ancestor animals did so well at that first show that they've continued to evolve and multiply ever since. We've made a happy little home for ourselves on Etsy since 2007...
