I am an illustrator and graphic designer. My 20 years of experience has been in the world of retail package design and corporate video. My work has included comic packaging, sports advertising, storyboarding, and logo design. I work on the Mac and I'm well-versed in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I begin my drawings at the drawing table with pencil and ink, but I finish the work on the computer and the end result will be a digital product.

Hello! I am a professional artist looking to advance my career in the drawing field.Currently, my choice medium is Sai, which is digital. I used to be heavy with traditional pen and paper, but I fear I may be growing out of it. I learned how to draw using anime heavily as a reference in highschool, and have since been attempting to branch out my style to be more realistic, or semi-realistic. I want to learn how to use watercolor as a medium, and I want to strengthen my ability in Photoshop and Sai. On the side, I love taking photos, but it is more of a simple hobby for me at the moment. =) If you are interested in my art, please feel free to contact me. For samples of my work you may feel free to visit my Deviantart. Laenri.deviantart.com Thank you for your time!
