Service Description

I am a recent college graduate from the State University of New York - College at Oneonta, where I earned a dual major degree in Computer Art and Mass Communication. My studies include digital paint, digital video, 3D modeling, web design, photography, design, drawing, and many others.

My best work is illustration, with a 2D style. I have much experience working with gradients, drop shadows, effects, filters, and all other aspects of Adobe Illustrator. I commonly make logos and fliers for my clients, but I am able to create any kind of drawing you may need.

In the future, I hope to work on an animated television series, designing characters and/or background images for the show.

When creating artwork for a client, I will continually give updates on the project, sending new copies as changes are made. I will communicate with the client to make sure the project is on track and will continue to edit the work until it is ready for use by the client.

When the project is complete, I will provide the artwork in a standard format (JPEG, GIF, SWF, HTML, ect) along with it's editable source file (AI, PSD, FLA, ect)
