Jan Baptist


Here's one I just finished up and posted over at the ISCA "Firing Squad". Its of my friend Jan Baptist who's clearly one of the most popular targets at that board.

Jan, I hope you like it. I always loved the Rien Poortvliet books like Gnomes and The Sandman and thought you'd make a good gnome :) Jan's blog can be reached here, or in the list to the right. He's a wonderful watercolor landscape artist and quite a caricaturist as well.
