A friend emailed to ask about the graphic I’m using for my profile (the pretty blue candlelight one), so I thought I’d share some info. It’s a thumbnail taken from a larger graphic created by the most talented computer artist I’ve ever personally known—my brother, Daniel. I’m always amazed that he can make computer images look as if they were painted with pastels. He works out of Portland, where he freelances commercial illustration and picture books. I’ve posted some of his work below. If you’d like to see more, his site is http://www.fisheyegraphics.net.
