Independent Illustrator

Boston, MA, USA
I am an independent illustrator residing in New England. I have BFA in Visual Communication Design and I am currently working towards an MFA in Illustration from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. I worked as a graphic designer at 2 award-winning studios from 2005–2010. Ever since, I have been working as an independent illustrator and part time professor. I have been posting a daily drawing on my site every weekday since late 2007. Selected clients include: Nike, Chronicle Books, McDonalds, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Goodbyn, Scholastic, Boston Magazine, Converse, Match.com and Nestle.
