I live, eat, breathe, sleep tattooing, illustration and advertising. I love color, composition, print, and typography and it is important for me to pursue "traditional" drawing, animation, and illustrative work in the future.

While following my career as an illustrator and designer gaining experience under others, I am eager to continue making my own work, as well as finding my niche in the art community.
