Portraits can be realistic, whimsical or mysterious. While some prefer a classic traditional painting other's are compelled to have something different that shows off their character or energy.
Do you have a big family (like me) but don't have a good picture of all of you together? Well I can piece them all together in a brilliant painting.
I also love doing pet portraits...nothing makes me smile more!Portraits can be done in the following mediums:
Dry Medium: Conte Crayon, Pastel, Charcoal or Pencil
You can view individual project galleries under the Project Menu located above. Just check out books illustrated by RJ.
I remember my childhood books of old...and I could never forget my favorites, the very simple but memorable Harold & The Purple Crayon or the brilliantly colored and detailed Airmail To The Moon. I knew from a young age as I read my siblings these and other brilliant children's books that I wanted to be an illustrator "when I grew up."
I'd love to be apart of your project providing you very reasonable rates and working with your budgets as we work towards our goals of becoming an illustrator and writer of children's books.
Email me for more samples, illustration styles and rates.
Sci-Fi and Fantasy art is soo much fun!
I don't have nearly enough clients that request it--maybe you will!? It'd really make my day :) I'm a lover of Science Fiction (from the classics like Metropolis and Star Trek to the wild new space operas!) and I love Fantasy--I'm constantly reading new series-currently reading Game of Thrones...and since I haven't seen the show I'm so curious as to how they create the most mystical of characters! What inspires you? What creative imagery have you put to paper and want to see illustrated. It could just be an idea or a concept--but sometimes having even a bit of it visualized can inspire in you a desire to take it to the next step of production! Let's create a visionary and literary work of epic proportion--so epic that Peter Jackson will be like, 'Hey guys, let me in on that!'
Need a funny mascot, an outrageous caricature, a custom comic book or coloring pages or characters designed?
I'm happy to help you develop these unique creations and have so much fun in the process.
Let's dive in to the creative pool together and see what we can accomplish!
