I am proficeant in many digital software including Adobe creative Suite, Corel Draw, Flash, and Microsoft Office. I can adapt almost any of my fantasical illustrations into a graphic design ready for production. I currently work as art director and in house designer at Fever River Packet Company.
I’m currently learning to paint and sculpt miniature figures, as well as produce large scale diorama backdrops for them. I’m new to this medium and artistic venue and am anxious to learn. I’ve won a bronze metal at ReaperCon 2012 check my news stories for more updates on my miniature painting progress.
I learned to paint in the digital world during collage at AAU, I’ve been using this medium for over 10 years. I love using digital illustration to enhance some of my traditional pieces as well as creating them from scratch for a quick turnaround time. My Digital pieces are featured in my portfolio page above.
I’ve been working with a series of traditional media for over 14 years, all of my work starts at the sketch stage and this allows me to realize almost any concept for a verity of needs. From portraiture to book covers and comics I’m a master of many mediums.
I was born in Manhattan, and have slowly made my way across these United States in a steady jaunt westward. At this time I remain unrepresented and am always looking for commissioned work. Although much of my experience comes from non-formal odd “jobs” which have popped up throughout my life. Jobs such as logo design, product design, silk screen design, tattoo design, portraits, characters, random consignment work, and even comic book illustration. I’m currently living in Santa Fe New Mexico working as a personal assistant to the illustrious George RR Martin. My position here at Fever River has allows me to explore my illustration dreams as well as managing to me well an on my toes. Please feel free to contact me with any questions concerning my designs, rates or upcoming schedule of shows and or commissioned work.
