Video Games

This is something new for me. I've been illustrating new themes for basic game engines like Frogger, Tetris and card games. These small jobs fit nicely in between larger projects and they are a lot of fun to create.

First Trip

We have just come back from our first trip to Russia in our quest to adopt our second child. We were fortunate enough to spend about 10 hours with him and simply fell in love. He's very shy which makes him very different from Yuri so it'll be interesting to see how they get along.

Great Client

Below are a couple of projects I recently finished, all for the same client, although different art directors. This series of whimsical icons was very refreshing to work on. I love this style of work because it's stylish, elegant and so different from what most clients request from me.

As simple as these images look, they are far from easy to do. With very clean images like this (the same can be said for logo work), everything has to be perfect. Every line and shape will be noticed so it must be just right.

New Content!

I have finally updated my portfolio on my website. I squeezed in many more images to the point where I'm now concerned I have too much junk on there. Take a look and let me know what you think.

You'll notice I've removed the "Graphic Design" section and replaced it with the new "Comics" category. Even though I do a fair amount of design still, this reflects a change in my workload. Unlike my first two years as a freelancer, 80% or more of my work today is illustration.
