I am an advertising professional. I've been an art director, a sometimes copywriter, an ACD, a studio artist and an in-house illustrator. The constant love throughout my journey has been my ability to draw. It is the talent that allows me to express myself most creatively, and continues to grow in meaning and focus in my life. My strive for excellence is a relentless chase for that illusive zenith called perfection. I work predominantly digitally, but am always bouncing around various mediums and adapting to different styles, to best suit whatever project is at hand. I am Andrew Dixon Illustration & Design.

Ken Scotty is a character designer and animator in his third year at The Art Institute of Las Vegas. He was born in Ft. Myers, Florida but raised in Henderson, Nevada. Scotty graduated from Coronado High School in 2005 and went on to enlist in the United States Army in 2006. He served two tours in Iraq with both the 82nd Airborne Infantry Division and the 1st Cavalry Division as a Humvee driver and .50cal gunner. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 2010 and immediately began attending classes at The Art Institute. All his life, Scotty wanted nothing more than to be an animator. He began doodling dinosaurs at the age of 4 and characters of all kinds not long after. At the age of seven, he was trained in the fine arts by a local Ft. Myers artist named David Meo, who taught Scotty all about concept and composition. Through the years, Scotty found he preferred drawing cartoon characters over painting life or scenery. He ran with this preference for the rest of his life, perfecting goofy faces, odd proportions and a lightness in even the strangest of his works. Scotty attends school full time while living in Las Vegas, Nevada and taking care of his 2-year-old son, Sean. He creates 3D works from his home as a freelance artist ranging from furniture models to animations. He is expected to graduate in early 2014, where he will go on to rattle the animation field with his unrelenting passion and enviable talent.

I am a recent graduate of Temple University's College of Liberal Arts, focus on English/Creative Writing. As a developing writer, I am looking for opportunities that not only interest me, but challenge me. Although I lack professional experience, I compensate with creativity and an insatiable thirst for knowledge. From fanfiction to movie reviews, I have re-invented my writing style and focus while working to maintain the same voice. I am also the part-time proofreader of many colleagues (oh, the late night e-mails). I have not done much formal/professional editing, but I am confident in my proofreading skills. My ability to adapt to many work environments and requirments makes me a flexible employee. Whether you need a self-sufficient freelancer or a new addition to your creative team, I am a valuable asset. Feel free to contact me for any project. I believe in giving a thousand percent, no matter how big or small a job is.

I am an artist who works in oils, pastels and traditional drawing mediums. I work with a variety of subjects including portraits of both people and pets, as well as still life's and landscapes. I enjoy the process of bringing my client's idea of an image to life using brush strokes on a canvas or marks on a piece of paper. My work is highly realistic and very detailed, combining a love of traditional techniques with a fresh vision. I enjoy working with strong, vivid color to render an idea with intense focus and clarity while also expressing an idea imbued with poetry and passion. If I can touch the heart of others through the expression in the eyes of someone's portrait, or the play of light on a cherished object in a still life, then I feel rewarded as an artist.

Hello, everyone. I have been drawing profesionally for over a decade. I'm from Bulgaria, but I recently moved to London. I studied in the National high-school of fine arts,,ilia Petrov'' and in the National University of Sofia,,St. Kliment Ohridski'' for an art teacher. I have keen interests for Portraits, Illustration, Drawing and Etching. My latest interest is about tattoo designs. I'm very good in realistic drawings, but lately i have been inspired and trying some other styles like Secession. I'm also interested by animee.I have basics skills in Photoshop. A couple of my major strengths are my attention to detail and adaptability.. I'm pretty well rounded in my training and open minded, which allows me to do almost any aspect of art. For an example recently I did a bodyart and a make up for a photoshoot.
