Hello there Ladies and Germs. I am Vertizart, freelance Artist, Musician, Writer, and Almost Human.

I enjoy intelligent conversation, good wine, good literature and some of the more hedonistic aspects of life.

I'm also chronically bad at Bio's, and like to ramble, albeit co-hesively ( i hope) I am currently open for commissions for fantasy art and illustration, and photorealistic portraiture, and miniature portraits, for which a sharp, detailed picture is required. My art can be viewed at


enjoy, my pretties.
