Lady Jill Switchblade of Portlandia commissioned me to paint an oil masterpiece of legendary grandeur in celebration of her epic adventure into wedlock with Sir Daniel of Reno. Dan and Jill hast since been married and layeth San Francisco to rubble as they ventured East in search of warmer climates to yon Oakland. There they doth dwell in the not so far away land with cat wizard Knuckles and cat warrior Kulo.
I had a great time throwing back some mead with Jill and brainstorming on all the symbolism within our metal album cover, bodice ripper romance, fantasy, Frazetta-esce hybrid culmination as a surprise to her hubby to be. Twas fun working on a commission that made me laugh every time I sat down to work.
Congrats on your first anniversary lovebirds! Enter best man speech here.
