I probably should have made one of these for myself a while ago, but for some reason I'm bad at online networking/self promotion.

Really, I just wanted to share with you the news that I ILLUSTRATED A CHILDREN'S CHAPTER BOOK and I'm going to be famous soon so you should be proud to know me or something.

When I was young I drew for myself. I drew from inspiration and what I found beautiful.

Then I went to college and was taught that my time isn't free, it's expensive. So now I draw what people pay me to draw, and sometimes have fun and draw silly crap.

One thing freelance illustrators can do is get paid to hide a lot of personal crap in art meant for other people.
Like these illustrations from a soon-to-be-available book:


What's that thing I circled in red? Why, it's Strett's name! He was sitting right next to me when I did it, too.
(there's other personal things on the labels, too, but I didn't think any of you would care about BGG, or my gamer name, or my last name)





What's that red mess?
Why, it's Silver's name, and Lake and the River, and TDH of course!
(there's other personal things on the labels, too, but I didn't think any of you would care about the name of my dog, or Cody's uncle)

how much do I have to pay to be in the illustrated version of Twilight by Kari? I wish to be captured in two dimensional form as a bespectacled and moustachioed version of myself playing the role of Bella Swan.

I do hope that you can find the time to respond promptly.

Yours,

Robert Holding.

Robert, I will draw a single rendition of you in such a fashion for free, because that falls into the category of "silly and fun."

The specifics of the illustration are at my discretion, because it's for free, and you have no say.

I think I smell a new LATR avatar coming along.

Oh, in case anybody didn't pick up on it, each head of the dragon represents one of the four teaser songs (shame, girl, whisper, and an escape).

You should draw me a tattoo! I know exactly what I want.


Edit - I'm a man of very few riches, but I can give you some sort of reasonable compensation if you'd like.
