I'm a freelance illustrator, among other things. I've tackled projects for card games, comics, roleplaying games, and television. My creative sensibility comes from absorbing everything from Star Wars and Stephen King to Calvin and Hobbes and Dungeons & Dragons. My work has a clean, energetic cartoon style distilled from a lifelong passion for games, comics, books, movies, and TV.
So, yup, I'm available for illustration work. Get in touch if you think I'm a good fit for a project you have in mind.
