Art has been a part of my life since I could hold a pencil, and it's been an adventure ever since. I've been working with Adobe Suite since I was 16 years old and as such I am intimately familiar with the interface. I graduated from college Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design. I've worked in Ad Design and Illustration mostly in the range of cartoons and traditional art. I am a professional, determined individual who is a strong perfectionist and I will work hard to give any client the best service i can provide. I take...

Service Description

I've dabbled in a little bit of everything. In Layout and Ad Design I've created entire magazines in In-design CS5 (See: Rivverrun Cataloges 2009-2010 in resume), and a multitude of Ads built from the ground up during my tenure at Long Island Media. (See: Resume & Ad Design Portfolio section to see my best created Ads.) The Ads were created using a combination of Photoshop CS5 and Illustrator CS5. Many times I went out of my way to do Photo touch up and vector recreation for assets that were too small to use but requested by clients for use in their ads. I've also worked in Animation using Flash CS5 (See: Youtbe Playlist Link) although these were largely personal projects. The same goes for much of my cartoon graphics and web comic (See: Cartoon Portfolio) Which were created using Illustrator CS5 & Photoshop CS5. These were made to keep strengthening my skills and practicing new techniques. Other work includes Tee-Shirt Graphics (See: Shy Away: WeLoveFine.com Shirt Design Resume), and currently I am continuing work with a client re-designing an entire brand for a children's reading program. (See: Be Excited about Reading program Resume.)

Generally speaking I'm flexible in many ways. I've worked in a variety of media, and have worked with both hourly rates and lump sum payments. I am a proficient graphic artist, and a fantastic cartoonist if i may say so myself. As stated earlier in my overview, I am a perfectionist and I work hard to give my clients the best work...
