I'm a professional design artist and illustrator in film and television, comics and trading cards. I design and produce one sheets (posters) for movies and props for television. I also illustrate for licensed trading card products and comic books. You can see my film work in marketing campaigns for the Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse movies from 20th Century Fox, and in season 1 episodes of DC's Legends Of Tomorrow. My illustrations can be seen dozens of licensed trading card sets (which include DC, Marvel, Top Cow and Dynamite properties) and I'm an official Upper Deck artist. My inks can be seen on comic book titles from IDW Publishing, Marvel and other publishers, including Taran Killam's The Illegitimates, X-Men Legacy, and Nova. I also produce my own illustrations that include comic art, fantasy and pinup girls. Aside from my experience in comic book art, publishing, illustration, and prop design and production, I also have an educational background in animation, and technical drafting. I specialize in character art and design, storyboarding, and classical 2D animation. I've also used my drafting education to create the design files to fabricate small set pieces and props. I have 10 years of experience as an editor in comic books, including marketing, script editing, team management, and publishing.
