New Post: Walt Simonson Art and Commissions
Last week I finally went back to my office, after 6 months of trying to work from home, and I already found the time to do two new blog posts…
The pandemic left Mr. Simonson with spare time to do a few charity illustrations and open a small commission list. Rare enough to do a post for future price reference!
See you next week!!
