Well, with Dwarven Miner done and now for sale, it's time to move on to other projects. 

I just completed some signage work for GameStop which was an honor for me. I have been a fan of GameStop for years. What a great company. 

I am currently working on illustrations of two demons for an author.  These guys are so fun to create. The author really created some great characters for me to work with.

I am also working on two projects simultaneously for Rather Dashing Games. One is an expansion to Dwarven Miner, the other is super top secret!

I can't wait to share this artwork with you all as soon as it is free to share publicly.

In the meantime, have a listen to some of my solo piano works. They make great background music for drawing, painting, or writing:

Rock on,
Grant

Do you have a degree in graphic design? Or did you learn it yourself because a lot of your pieces seem to be like graphic design or related to it. I only ask because I am going to be starting on getting my bachelors on graphic design so I can hopefully be an illustrator one day.  Also, what advice do you have for being in the artist work force or in art school? I am a bit anxious since I start art school this July. Lastly, keep up the good work, if it wasn't for you I may have never gotten into art. So thank you for being inspirational and an amazingly nice person.

Wow! Amazing! I have been drawing for my whole life. I taught myself. I did take an art class or two in college and of course in high school, but I found them more limiting than inspiring. I just followed my own three simple rules: 1. Draw every day. 2. Observe everything, how light works, shadow, skin folds, clothe folds, etc. 3. Challenge yourself. Draw something new or something you don't want to draw. If you do that then you will be able to draw anything, and do it well and quickly. 

As far as in the work force, you have to separate yourself from your professional work. Draw it with passion and conviction, but know that it belongs to someone else. You have to create their vision or better. So be open to changing it from the start. And design it in a way where it 
will be EASY to change for the customer. That way you meet or exceed their expectations and do it in a timely fashion.  The two major issues employers have with artists is that they are slow, and they are reluctant to change their work.

Thank you so much! It means a lot, and your advice came at a really great time. I actually started my college classes a couple of weeks ago, and I'm still trying to adapt to the work I am given. It is stressful, but I try to keep my head up. It means a lot to be given advice by one of my idols at a time like I am in now. And in all honesty, if it wasn't for you I may have never learned about my ability to draw and paint. I must thank you for inspiring me then and for helping me now. It was an honor meeting you back in October 22, 2009 at the Pullo center even if I did trip up the stairs and was shy a bit shy, and I want to thank you for that too. You are one of the nicest people I know, and thanks again.

I never would've guessed that my favorite ghost hunter was also amazing at art as well <3 :D (also all the other things I'm finding out from this page)
