Service Description

I use texture and differing art styles to express the innate nature of a project. I can produce striking visual images to accompany articles or presentations, or provide imagery for albums and book covers. I specialize in mimicry of other styles; provide me with a sample of something you like, I will analyze it and produce something that evokes the visual essence of that piece but with your subject matter or concept.

For Illustration, I do the majority of production at high DPI resolution in Adobe Photoshop. This allows for high-quality reproduction of the work in a variety of formats from large posters to business cards. Design elements (typefaces, layout, logos) can be included in the work as well. You can view some examples of my work here.

The conceptualization process can be yours exclusively if you would like to have complete control over your vision, or I offer my own involvement at your level of comfort. I have a good grasp of symbolism and subtlety, but understand that in some instances you must be as straight forward as possible to drive a point across.

For Motion Graphics, I use Adobe After Effects. Combined with my illustrative skills, I can produce eye-catching visuals that will add to your video project or presentation. I can also use preexisting assets from a project you may already be working on to add some flair to the work of others.
