Every day, there are more and more posts on here seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? …none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on here to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as there are professional illustrators. There are eleven times as many certified mechanics. There are SEVENTY times as many people in the IT field.

Abel Logo by martinabel

Hello everyone! I've been away a long long time, but I am going to try and make another attempt at Deviant Art.
I'll be updating the profile and galleries here in the next few weeks, and perhaps sharing some doodles as well.

I look forward to checking out some inspirational artists on here too!

But for now... I am trying to work through a massive heat wave effecting Melbourne. Its awful!!
