Let San Antonio trip you out
All things considered, a decade's not too long for an artist to wait for success...then flame out and wait another 10 years to be invited to share a VH1-sponsored bunk-bed with C.C. DeVille. Finally getting his due after a decade + 2, Jason Limon.
Toward the end of a 12-year stint as a graphic designer, San Antonio's Limon finally started getting enough of his acrylic-on-wood works into galleries (most of them out-of-state) to start painting full-time, with the mainstay being accessibly grotesque creatures fused from organic and metallic components, like far less cute versions of Stephen Hawking.

Meanwhile, In the Still of Uncertain Streams offers what passes for sylvan serenity, depicting a hulking, moping sloth, a tiny, furry, gumdrop, and a fat deer-like thing with a curious alien's face. If you see stuff like that all the time, quit putting that poison in your veins, or momma's fallen angel will be you.
