I am a young man with dreams. I fell in love with art and had a passion with the fact of creation. I've done every advanced art class in high school, and passed with A's and A+'s. I have an excessive amount of free time, and space. Every day brings new ideas and drawings. Working in high school i noticed a lot of late drawings, points knocked off, and upset students. Every drawing I have ever done was on time, efficient, and "out-of-the-box." If you're looking for someone with passion and creativity, I am the person to go to, dependable and affordable. Listening and remembering is just as important as shading or outlining. I won't miss a detail. All in all, i enjoy my work, it's appreciated and well done.
