Hello and welcome to my coroflot portfolio! I work as a commercial illustrator and designer specializing in artwork and graphics for animation, video games, album covers, and children's media. I live and work in San Francisco, CA.
Here is a quick overview of what I've been up to recently. Between 2009 and 2011 I had the opportunity to work for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim with Clambake Animation Studio on an original cartoon series. In 2011 I got a taste of apparel design and production art while working on t-shirts for Nike and Urban Outfitters. And in 2012 I designed an original board game with Gryphon Design Collective. Most recently I worked for Disney and Microsoft with Hitpoint Games, the largest independent video game studio in Massachusetts. I also exhibited this year in Boston Comic Con selling my original artwork and comics. All along I've worked on commission creating original paintings, and on contract creating designs. I've exhibited in conventions and galleries, and I've applied my skills to as many creative projects as possible. Please see my resume below to learn more.
I am from the Berkshires of Massachusetts but now live and work in San Francisco. I'm willing to travel anywhere my work takes me. For art commissions, purchase inquiries, or anything else related, please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And thank you for your interest in my work!

BFA Illustration, 2009
During my time studying at Mass Art I familiarized myself with the basic principals of animation and the fundamentals of drawing and painting for illustration. I was also introduced to the world of graphic design as I started my career creating work in the adobe suite and learning to use a wacom tablet. My thesis was to create a body of work in the realm of concept art where I conceptualized a broad and epic story, designing characters and assets which I am still developing years later. For the majority of my time at Mass Art I worked as an animation lab monitor teaching myself as I went, and helping both undergrad and grad students with software and equipment such as cameras, green screens, final cut pro, and the adobe suite.
