I'm a classically trained visual artist with experience in comic books. I got my B.F.A. in 2013, and although I've been working as a freelancer ever since, I've only been a full-time freelancer for the past year. I've designed a bit of everything at one point or another: characters for comic books, book covers, T-Shirts, costumes, weapons, spaceships, aliens, orcs, fantasy beasts, more portraits of superheroes than I can count, and everything in between. I enjoy working with people to bring their ideas to life on the page, and make their concepts tangible.

I left the Airforce in May 1983 to further my studies in mechanical engineering with the Nuclear Development Corporation of South Africa (PTY) LTD, where did a three-year course in instrument making. Ucor and Nucor then merged and they could not offer us permanent positions. I left Nucor in February 1987. In March 1987 I joined a firm Total Metbond in Rosslyn north of Pretoria where I worked as a Technical Draughtsman designing rubber injection, transfer and compression molds. I also did tool jig and fixture design. This work mainly involved the motor industry. In June1988 I joined Pretoria Metal Pressings as a design draughtsman doing press tool and jig design and development. In April 1991 I was transferred to the Technical Computer Support department as a cad – cam annalist, the work involved computer technical and software support plus training on cad – cam systems. In June1994 I left Pretoria Metal Pressings and joined Advanced Technologies and Engineering in Midrand as a Design Draughtsman doing development on the new Unmanned Arial Observation Vehicle using my extensive composite and mould design experience. Later in the flight test phase I did some Quality control and flight test support at the test range. My role extended to air vehicle fleet manager and I also did Quality control on the aircraft composite manufacture and integration as well as prototype design and manufacture. Currently I am working as an Industrialization Technician, solving production related problems and processes. PTO W.
