Service Description

I have illustrated children's picture books, young adult novels, comics, graphic novels, and book covers. Sci-fi, fantasy, and adventure are what I do most often, but I love painting for picture books more than anything.

My designs have won awards from national and regional advertising associations. I have extensive experience in graphic design, honed by years of overnight production design. If it absolutely needs to go to press tomorrow morning, then I'm your man.
