View more at: www.ERICTAYLORID.com I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and have spent the majority of my life drawing, imagining, and making things. I started out with traditional illustration, and I've been delving more and more into painting, along with some sculpting here and there, just to keep things interesting and expand my skill set. I have a degree in Graphic Design and have gained the requisite digital skills with Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign (just to name a few). The combination of all these amazing experiences have continually evolved me into a well-rounded artist and designer. Ultimately, I just love creating, whatever the medium or subject matter. Art is merely the outlet that allows me to express my creative vision, and I would love to design my next work of art for you.

I have a BA (Hons) in Drawing and Image Making. I am a very flexible and versatile artist, able to work to a deadline. I have knowledge of photoshop, illustrator and similar programs and work well in pencil, pen and inks. I can do any style of drawing I am given, although particulary strong at realistic drawing or anime style cartoons.
