Service Description

I have a strong university training in the Adobe CS software, most current is CS4, and all things graphic design related. My expertise is in the Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop software, along with traditional materials by hand. I often combine my traditional work with the Adobe software for remarkable designs.

My work spans many styles and genres, one only needs to take a look at my portfolio. I can provide services that are hard to find such as the traditional, a new cutting edge style, or a mix of the two for something truly unique.

My skills include Adobe Illustrator CS4, Adobe Photoshop CS4, Typography, Illustration, Caricature Drawing, Cartooning, Pen and Ink, Colored Pencils, Markers, Mixed Media, and Oil Painting.

I give the project the time and research it needs, adding depth to the design, which is often overlooked. I have never missed a deadline, and treat each project with respect. I can produce vector or raster graphics, or a crossover of the two, and can give the images in any file format needed.
