Service Description

I'm guessing that you have a new game, book, film or advertisement that you've spent days, weeks or months carefully planning out.

Now you need someone with the artistic and visualization skills to bring it to life. You need someone who can take a simple idea and transform it into a living, breathing character, environment or creature that draws people to your product like a moth to the flame.

Well, look no further!

With over 16 years of professional experience as both an artist and director for some of the biggest game and film companies in the world, I possess the skills needed to not only create the jaw-dropping artwork that you will want to see on the front cover of your product, but I can do so quickly and efficiently, which is a handy skill to have at your disposal when your budget is tight and your deadline is tighter.

I know what you're looking for, not only from an artistic standpoint, but from a management standpoint as well, because I have lived and experienced both sides of the business.

So let's work together to bring your ideas to life, and knock everybody's socks off in the process!
