I'm a talented designer and illustrator. I have an Associates of Occupational Studies degree in Commercial Art and a Bachelor of Graphic Arts degree in Commercial Illustration. Both of which were obtained from Nossi College of Art in Nashville, TN. I've worked at a sign company for 3 years now. I love it! I've learned a lot while working there and continue to learn more every day. There's always something new to learn in the Adobe applications. I'm skilled at Vector Illustrations, Digital Photoshop Painting, and Traditional Illustration. I...

Service Description

It is my goal to provide you with creative designs and cutting-edge concepts that meet your unique needs. Whether you need something illustrative or something a little more graphic, I'm your man. I can create a custom logo for you and even establish a corporate branding for your business. I can provide illustrations and designs for ad layouts, decals, vehicle magnets, vehicle graphics, signs, and more.

Primarily, I am an Illustrator. I specialize in children's books. I work mostly in traditional mediums, Prismacolor markers or Liquitex acrylic paint, but I do occasionally work in other mediums. I do book illustrations, editorial Illustrations, as well as Illustrations for various other purposes. You name what you need illustrated and what size you need it, and I'll create it for you.

I'll take what I understand to be your needs and create a series of color-comps for your review. Once I get feedback from that, I'll create a PROOF for your approval. Once approved, I'll begin work on the actual illustration and provide you with an estimated time of completion. If you need the work by a set deadline, you'll have it before that deadline. Final illustration work will be presented to you with a choice. I'll send it to you over the internet as a digital file, or I'll send you a CD in the mail. All Illustrations will be presented to the client in hi-resolution digital format, as the client is only purchasing rights-of-usage and not the actual copyright of the illustration. If...
