Freelance Illustrator and Graphic Designer

Charlotte, NC, USA
Hi! My name is Robert Blankenship aka PaperGhostDesign. Illustrator & Graphic Designer. Currently plundering the past for a golden ticket to the future. Meanwhile, I seek to share my imagination with others.

Part-time rogue, general scoundrel and occasional miscreant. Character Creator, Monster Curator and self professed Illustrator. Into ghosts, ghouls, snob-goblins and all critters of the night. I prefer the edges to the center. Oh, And I type!
