Hello there everyone :) My name is Anne Stokes and I work as a freelance illustrator. My artwork has been used on many products including books, games, t-shirts, posters, jigsaws, sculptures, greetings cards and jewellery. I love the world of fantasy and being able to share my ideas and characters with other people through my art.

I post here on DA under the name Ironshod. Thats is a long story, but it seemed like a good idea at the time and now I'm kind of stuck with it ;)

I hope you will enjoy looking at some of the artwork in my gallery. DA is a great place with so many other creative and interesting people to talk with. Sometimes I do get rather a lot of messages and I am afraid I can't answer then all, as then I will have no time to paint new pictures! I do appreciate everyone who takes the time to comment.

Current Residence: UK
Favourite style of art: Fantasy
Personal Quote: Carpe diem - seize the day

I am in awe right now! I came across your account by chance looking for inspiration to start my own tarot deck; the Necronomicon was my first deck and a very treasured possession of mine. Your art is so beautiful and I always find myself admiring the images on each card. Thank you so much for giving the world a chance to see your works; that really is greatly appreciated. :)

Hi! I tagged you in my latest journal entry to tell more about yourself. If you feel like answering that wandering question form go for it! I tagged you because I like your artwork and like to know more about the artist behind it. (If you don't feel like answering it's ok too)
