About Me | Song SpeckelsI am a freelance creative professional based in Oakland, California. I work as an illustrator and multimedia artist on a variety of projects including litigation graphics/interactive presentations, web design, custom illustration, logo development and icon design. In between projects I am a contributing artist to iStockphoto.

Recently I have seen my artwork on products for sale on Etsy and other places on the web so I decided to open my own shops with products featuring my images. check out my stuff on the buy things page or go straight to my Zazzle and Cafepress stores.
If you are here for the free icons they are on the fun stuff page along with some other neat things like videos from my M.A. thesis project and a flash based version of a "Pick a Path" or "Choose your own Adventure" style book.
