design & illustration
I'm a designer who loves illustration. With each new piece of art, I work to blend design and art, be it through the technique used to create the final images, the application, or just the way I apply design skills to the piece. The work on display in my portfolio doesn't show it, but I've also recently discovered how much I like type and typography, I plan to start exploring illustrative type in the near future. I'm also profficient with alot of the tools and software of our trade, and know how to build websites.
I love coming up with new ideas and new ways to present them. I'm always pushing myself to create new things for personal and work projects.
I've got strength in both digital and traditional mediums, can quickly bust out concept sketches, and polish them.
With a background in customer service and retail I've gained the ability to communicate quickly and clearly with clients.
I love learning new things. I'm always in the pursuit of knowledge in some form or another. I read a lot, and practice my skills all the time.
I won't call myself a movie buff but given the time I'd watch at least a couple a week. I find it's great to wind down and also a good way to find inspiration.
I'm not an avid collector, however I do have a sizeable stash. I tend to buy for the artwork within. I want to eventually create my own comic for fun.
