Created using Adobe Photoshop. Made with many layers and blending modes, I took a photo of my own arm, added the tattoo, then made it come to life... also made my hand morph in to liquid underwater.

This is another project to design a DVD cover for a movie. I re-made this cover of a real movie that is powerful and dear to my heart as it is a documentry of my unit while we were deployed to Afghanistan. Check it out, but it is very intense. In honor of all those who serve our country.

About Me:
An artist in the purest sense, I excel at being creative. I grew up in the bay area with a pencil in hand and just love to draw. I’m thankful for the talent and wish to use it to create visually striking images. I am capable of many techniques and think my portfolio will show the wide range of my ability. My goal is to illustrate children’s books so I have focused lately on playful, emotion filled cartoons. I find much of my inspiration in nature and love displaying organic freestyle type characters. I can keep my work simple but have the patience and ability to put quite a lot of detail in to my creations as well. I create on paper, then refine using Photoshop. I am fairly new in the professional arena so my hourly rate is negotiable and reasonable, based on the project detail...
