|Looking for underfaved, surprisingly good works by underexposed artists that you want to feature in your journal and news articles? Go to my fave collection "Attention please":|

If you have some time to spare, have a look at these works.

BUYING MY WORK
A lot of my work is on sale through the Deviantart Print service, a lot of it isn't. Don't hesitate to contact me if you see a work that's not available for printing, there might be no particular reason for that and I can put it up. Some of the works that are available for print are in need of a different title or will have their frame removed. That will happen sooner or later, but if you don't want to wait, contact me too, I'll put you in the fast lane.
Finally, some of my best works are for sale on Redbubble. You might have a look there if you prefer their conditions. Also my works there don't have the black or white frame that's present around many of my pictures.
