Had a Portrait Made of My Car

An artist in Warsaw, Poland PM'd me on the Porsche 991 forum at 6SpeedOnline last Thursday with an offer to draw my car freehand using colored pencils and markers for a very reasonable amount of money. He included some pics of his recent works which were amazing so I hired him almost immediately and sent him a 50% deposit ($150) via PayPal. He sent me interim progress pics so I could see how it was coming out and comment about color, composition, etc. All I needed to do was send him a bunch of photos via email, pay the deposit, and he got to work within the hour. Instead of doing my Porsche I decided to do my Healey.

This morning he sent me a photo of the finished work and I love it! Attached is the pic and the original is in the mail. It measures 16"X22" and is done completely freehand with no use of computer. This guy is very talented!

The internet is truly amazing. In the space of minutes, a total stranger finds me, shows me his work, I make a decision to trust him, send him money via PayPal, send him pics of my car and days later he ships my finished artwork.

This looks great. How can the artist be contacted?
