This is my professional illustration site.

Freelance Illustrator
available for hire.

I am available for short term, quick-turnaround projects.

Illustration

I specialize in figurative illustration. I usually work digitally, but I find myself being drawn back to traditional mediums.

Digital Painting

Most clients want digital files, digital paintings done from start to finish.

Traditional

I like to work in watercolor/gouache, oils and acrylic with colored pencil.

Design

I will take on logo design jobs and web design jobs for face to face clients.

How I Work

My Working Process

Let me know what your goal is. I will let you know if I can meet your requirements.

  • Define the Problem

    Let’s not kid ourselves

    It’s easier to come up with a solution to any given problem when that problem is clearly defined.

    HIT ME UP

    01.
  • Reverse Brainstorming

    I like to do reverse brainstorming.

    Come up with a bunch of crappy ideas then do the EXACT OPPOSITE.

    YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO

  • Final Delivery

    When we’re all done,

    I will give you a link to download your hi-res file.
