Excellent piece, yes he's def an admirable fella.
These are both great. I've heard about him and know some, but I should probably get myself up to date on what he's been up to recently. I can't stop looking at that second illustration--the pink on his face is awesome and his fine beard hairs are mesmerizing.
Yeah, I heard about him on Work of Art. I think it's great that he's so dedicated to his art, that he's willing to risk his life.
