Said "Just heard back today: Entertainment memorabilia company The Prop Stop will be bearing a new logo from me. My design is currently fairly simple, with flat colors for optimum readability, but we shall see if they want to take it in any wild directions."

Said "Love your style! Characters instantly recognizable while not being just a carbon copy of the original drawings; and if that's paint work, additional kudos for your skill with the brush." to Jennalee Auclair

Thank you very much, fan art is always tricky in that sense. Not sure which drawing it is you commented on since freelanced isn't showing me for some reason :/ If you let me know which drawing, I'll tell you it it was painted or not ;D Thank you again!

Logo suite for a startup podcast/videocast network. Various styles for various applications including social media sites, video sites and more. I created the invertible shape serving as the "rocketship" and "demon head" while trying to think of something both simple and memorable. The rotational-symmetry concept extends to the round "initials logo" where the compound word, "Rocketdemon", is symbolized with the ambigram of the capital 'R' and lower-case 'd', reading the same even when rotated 180 degrees. Note: Client specifically stated they wanted the name spelled with only the R capitalized.

For a recent project, the client asked for a series of calaveras, Dia de los Muertos skulls. She asked that one be a cat, and it turned out to be her favorite of the series. Hand-drawn (digitally) in Sketchbook Pro - client wanted no color fill in the delivered pieces.

Book cover for "The Warrior Poet" - note: original is B&W ink, but if you ever see the book, the publisher colorized the image. I like it better in B&W.

Thanks! Painting can be a challenge because I can't be as controlled as I am with pencil..But I really enjoy not freaking out over every detail...and my hand and wrist like it much better!

About Me:
I am a freelance illustrator and designer out of the DC area; I have somewhat of a penchant for the 'geeky' but enjoy creating art in many styles. While most of my professional jobs have been in illustration, I also do the occasional graphic or logo design, and I've been known to make tangible objects (props, etc) as well.

My workflow is all digital, but much of it is hand-drawn via digitizer tablet. I work in Sketchbook Pro and Adobe Illustrator mainly, with side ventures into Photoshop or other programs as needed.

Thanks for viewing my profile!
