Omigosh, that's beautiful! I didn't realize you were a painter!

What else have you done?

Thank you thank you!!!

Yep, I'm a painter. I quit my "day job" a couple years ago, and I've been supporting myself by doing freelance artwork, commissioned portraits, etc. ever since. I sell little paintings on eBay, prints, that sort of thing. It feels really nice to thumb my nose at everyone who predicted dire futures for me when I decided to pursue my art as a career =) Eventually I'd like to become successful enough for Matt not to have to work any longer, so he can be a "kept man." =)

My website is http://www.strangeling.com if you'd like to see more. I've got a book coming out next fall - a collaboration with Brian Froud (one of my favourite artists of all time - I'm thrilled!) and several other fantasy artists. I'll be sure to update everyone as that project progresses!
