I'm a freelance illustrator living in sunny Orlando, Florida. I played music for many years, and spent the last 4 years professionally in the web design arena, but am making a push to promote my illustration work. I love fantasy and sci-fi, but probably lean more toward speculative fiction or magic realism. My current favorite author is Neil Gaiman. I absolutely love the short stories here on Tor.com as well as the many illustrators, from Sam Weber to Rick Berry, Jon Foster, Eric Fortune, Brett Helquist, Dave McKean, Joao Ruas, Omar Rayyan and many many others. http://seanchristiandampier.com
