I'm an illustrator and designer, fueled by a love of storytelling and great characters, and a lot of coffee to support a mostly-nocturnal lifestyle.

I started drawing from the pages of National Geographics when I was young, and since then, animals and people have become my main subject matter. Up until a few years ago, I made only realistic artwork and reserved humorous characters for my sketchbook. Then I decided I liked being funny better than being purely academic. I also found the inspiring work of Peter de Seve, Bobby Chiu, and Carter Goodrich. And so with their influence, I decided to pursue humorous illustration in full force.

I did, however, retain a practical side, which is where the graphic design comes in. A strong sensibility for composition, color, and detail combined with an eye for typography has led to a so-far-so-good career as a freelance graphic designer. I like to think of myself as one of the more adaptable artists out there, as I'm able to give style when needed but can also conform to a certain desired style as well.

My ultimate dream is to work in the film industry as a visual development artist and character designer while continuing to do graphic design work. I may also like to teach art in the future, too. Read Less
