Guy Wolek

Illustrator, visual develpment artist

Oxnard, CA, USA
I has worked as a Freelance Illustrator since 1982. Doing a variety of work over the years, from court room sketch artist and character development to corporate annual reports. Often called on to art direct and illustrate, I am comfortable with creating many of his projects from scratch. I am adaptable to just about any situation and tenacious enough to figure out new challenges.
I am a professional with a good work ethic and have years of client loyalty to prove it. I work well with others and enjoys doing art.
