Even though I have been having some real challenges with this project, the client Berkley Badger has been a true blessing, he has his certain visions and I believe we have together made what he has envisioned! I have had alot of up and downs as far as feeling thrilled about this project, but know when it is to a point where we are both happy, it is all worth it!. Most of the work has been spent on the crowd, which we went from really hellish type crowd to a more normal somber crowd. Most of the work was also spent in the value underpainting stage, the feet, hands and the crowd was the most time consuming, and then the coloring was added. The client wanted me to find photographs online to paste and use photoshop to paint into it and to make it all work. In traditional Illustration there as been artist using collages pasted in there work to make it a more real artsy look, and I believe that is what we have achieved? Here is the two final Illustrations and please make sure to watch the video I made with the vine of truth! I feel truly blessed to have the chance to help glorify God thru my talents! Peace out!
I just want to let you all know that I am really proud to be part of this great local magazine – Ocean Front Magazine. Geoffrey and Nelson Williams are brothers and decided to start this magazine. I really think it is great honor to be the only artist they used this issue. I really hoping to be able to convince them for a cover job very soon!

Studio caricatures are done at my home studio, and often involve me looking at several photos for inspiration, integrating the personality and hobbies or occupation of the model, and are more detailed. I enjoy doing these so much, as they are often surprises for a special birthday or that special boss. I love to see photos of the presentation and hear about the reaction. Also when you go to send the references on the quote page (to many photos just e-mail them separate at firstname.lastname@example.org), please have the faces in several different angles, and close up. If you want body situations please either help describe or send a picture of that pose. Other details such as landmarks or other objects include them as well. Ask me about a studio caricature.

Highly Rendered Caricatures in traditional and/or digital mediums
Portraits are generally done in my studio; however, I’m also available to create a portrait with live models. The portrait can be a serious fine art piece, or more of an extended studio caricature. I enjoy capturing the personality, appearance, and emotion of my portrait subjects. I must paint you – Send me a quote request along with some photos.
Cartoons has always been a big influence in my childhood, comics such as Asterix, Phanthom, X-Men, and Donald Duck. I never really been a big fan of the more simple types of comic line work. I am really greatful to my new steady client – OceanFront Magazine and the newest edition of monthly Gag Cartoon with Johnson’s Strageties.
On Thursday morning I met with a client that wanted to me to create a story book for him to give to his wife, which was going to given to her right before she was going to walk down the eisle ( not sure how to spell that Opps). Bottom line is I was only given on friday from 2pm and till 2am to work on it, because deadline was after work on Saturday at 1pm, and they where going to get married at 6p.. These 10 drawings took me about 5-6 hours to create, and I am very pleased with the outcome. I didn't want to use markers soo I penciled in everything, and scanned it the front cover to be colored a little! I wish I had more time, and the client is a musician and wants to use me for other work (if I had a penny for every time I heard that)
With my graffiti background I can really relate to having text and artwork together! My graphic design experience has mostly been to promote my own business, but sometimes I have helped clients with logos, flyers, menus, and page layouts. I like to do my own layout with the art and text provided by my client. By having me the artist layout my own art it will help make sure the image works good on the page and keeps the viewer interested and captivated.! I have done some work for clients and my self over the years, and here are a few examples: (I use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Word, and PageMaker).
