About

It's hard work being a dad…

In 2006, I was in my 8th year working as a freelance animator and illustrator. The hours were long, and though I was always home and accessible to my 3 kids, I was often so stressed and exhausted that I was not in very good shape to be much of a dad to them.

After stumbling upon Etsy, I opened a shop and let it sit for about 6 months without doing much to promote it. Sales were okay, but nothing compared to what happened once I committed to giving the shop a real chance to become my main source of income. A slow build began, and within 2 years, the business was productive enough to temporarily stop doing freelance and concentrate on my online art business full-time. Once the Etsy shop was established, I began to take on freelance projects again - couldn't stay away:)

Lots of great things have happened since then. My work is in catalogs like Land of Nod and Garnet Hill and a few pieces ended up for sale at Target. The best thing though, while it is still a lot of work, and you have to always be willing to "be at work", I am much more truly available to my kids and wife.

I am so thankful that folks like you take an interest in my work and make it possible to support my family with my work.

    I have been selling my art since I was 11 and since 2007, I have made a living from my artwork. I love interpreting things I love (Robots, birds, dogs, etc.) and the way that those works then find people who love the same things.
