The challenge of taking an article, movie, book, or anything that needs to be shown visually is always a thrill. There is a lot to think about when trying to make an image interesting and keeping the viewer fixated on the page. I use a lot of traditional mediums (pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolors, gouache, acrylics, oils, and digital); but I am also really enjoying how integrating the traditional mediums with the digital age and it has really opened up my work! I like using Photoshop, to render high resolution art and Illustrator for vector images.
Published illustrations seems to be the category where my business is growing most-rapidly. I enjoy drawing portraits and caricatures, but when they can be used to tell a story or to illustrate an opinion – that’s exciting to me. I’m very appreciative of OceanFront Magazine, Bass Angler Magazine for hiring me a number of times to create illustration for their publication. I am very interested in continuing that relationship, and in providing editorial illustration for other magazines and news sources – nationally and internationally. Here’s my contact information.
