Personal Connection: At some point during my conversations about his art, Owen Connell suggested I look up Dale’s works. I took a look at his website and found that, not only did I like his design aesthetic, I could actually afford his originals. I ordered all 3 sets of his Library Drawings (completed 5/28-31/19), which I really enjoy because they are all of the same characters, yet each set has differences from the others. I remember being a little upset when it took some time for Dale to ship them (whiny baby) and then felt terrible when Dale let me know that he was in Montana for a family funeral. What a jackass I am sometimes. Dale also included some bonus art pieces for the late shipment, showing what a class act he is.
