After seeing his art I thought it would be a great idea to have him do a portrait of my wife and I for an anniversary gift. My wife always complained that we paid a lot of money for wedding photos, but never did anything with them. I thought this would be a good way to start.

Glider, whose real name is Xiaonan Sun, was professional every step of the way. I originally had a rather ambitious plan, but with his help settled on a photo that was just right. My emails were always returned promptly, and the work was completed to my satisfaction before any money changed hands.
Today I received the portrait, safe and sound, in it's tube, at work. The whole process took less than six weeks.

I will actually be back in Vancouver over my anniversary, while Yuko will still be in Japan. I plan to have the portrait delivered to her on the day, and then call her. It should be a great surprise.
Of course, I had to get the movie as well. That is part of what makes the Xiaonan Sun experience so special.
Quality art, a professional attitude, and a StarCraft fan. Glider is a pro in every sense of the word. Thanks a lot sir, and I wish you continued success. With your talent though, I don't think you will need any help from me.
Would I repeat? Given the right occasion, absolutely.
