    Well guys, seems the internet is interested in my work after all!

    Thank you so much to everyone who shared, commented and messaged me. I’ve already received over $700 worth of commissions in the last two days!   So,  I’ve decided to make a Facebook page as well to help not only promote my work but my message that all animals are beautiful and important. It is my life’s dream, and goal, to use my work to express the wonder of nature’s less popular animals so people can learn to love them as I do.

    I will also be using the page to host and feature other artists, photographers, and crafters, who’s work reflects the natural world.

    Please like and share so that I can make this dream a reality. Thank you for taking the time to read, I greatly appreciate all the help and support, you guys rock <3

    But how will we explain to our kids if they don’t get a letter?!

    We give them a letter.

    And then you take them to disneyland

    The Last Phoenix is a beautiful aerial combat adventure game where you control the last remaining Fire-bird who awakens to find the world rotting away. With the once vibrant world covered in ash and frost, you must master your abilities and fight against the decay, restoring the balance between life and death.

    Exploring the world of The Last Phoenix is a joy, it really is a ridiculously beautiful place, a wonderfully crafted, vast decaying cityscape full of mystery.  As the phoenix flies through the environment, frost and ash are cleared away and vegetation regrows in real time, purifying the land permanently.   It features a Metroidvania style of exploration and discovery, and aerial combat against carrion and crows, with a variety of fire and light based attacks at your disposal.

    Due for release on Steam this Fall, The Last Phoenix is well worth keeping an eye on (or both of them even).  It’s a visually stunning experience that will make your eyes extremely happy.

       My name is Wesley James Lock I’m an artist and an aspiring biologist living on the west coast of Florida. For as long as I can remember I have loved two things, art, and animals. I started studying both from a very young age and my dream has always been to make a career out of it. Unfortunately I dropped out of school for personal and health reasons and recently had to quit my job as well. I had been working construction for the last couple years but kept getting injured and just can’t do it anymore. 

       I can still make art, and want to bring back to life my dream of making it as a wildlife illustrator. I’d love to start selling prints and doing commissions again to bring myself back into it. 

      If you like my work and are interested in buying or commissioning a piece please send me a message, or if you would be kind enough to share this I’d greatly appreciate it.

     I work in a wide range of budgets and always enjoy a challenge. Thank you for taking the time to read this, be well <3 

    -Wes.

    Alright guys I give up. I’m gonna go crawl into a hole and cease to exist, Wes is better than me at all things. Seriously, he’s basically the new Steven Irwin and at the same time a stupendous artist. If you are following me and you aren’t following him, your priorities are in the wrong place.

    fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

    Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.
