About Bud

Bud is a painter whose strong command of the human figure is at the root of his illustration and fine art work. His keen study of life yields a cleverly abstracted and stylized realism. This has led him to work for companies such as Wizards of the Coast, Dark Horse Comics and Image Comics. He also contributes regularly to Every Day Original and shows his work in galleries across the country.

Contact Bud to inquire about commissions.
