I am a professional illustrator with a wide range of illustration styles that vary from ultra-realistic to cartoony. I have created illustrations covering everything from sports, to portraits, cartoons, comics, clothing, and technical illustrations. I started out as a traditional artist in the pencil and pen and ink mediums, and have since moved into the world of digital painting using programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Sketchbook Pro. I have been a Senior Graphic Designer/Illustrator for HDR, Inc. for the past 18 years. In my free time create freelance illustrations for numerous clients including the Topps Trading Card Company. I am currently working on a creator owned comic book co-created with my friend Mike Cameron.
