I am making lots of illustrations for my own products. I love the freedom to create art that feels right to me personally. On the other hand I also love to work on commissions as well. It's nice to make people happy with commissioned art and products.
A little while back I was asked to illustrate a fantasy creature called; an Eastern Dragon. It was an original character and that person asked me to design a shoulder bag with that character. She had enough references for this character, so I had enough information to draw her character in my illustration style.
