The Ghetto $lang album is at the printers! Hopefully it’s being printed as we speak! It has been tied up with legal. It’s always a drag but you have to protect yourself now a days from being sued. Hopefully I’ll get the final pieces soon and I can post it here for you all to check out. Also go give Ghetto $lang a listen. Really great music and great band. Been a pleasure working with them!
As you may or may not know my wonderful wife recently bought me a sketchbook. This sketchbook is set up to make you draw one sketch a day. I had been complaining that I really miss drawing so this was a perfect gift from her.
So now every week I try and come up with a theme for my drawings. It’s been fun and last week’s theme was a Sanrio vs X-Men mash-up! It was so much fun and the response was great. So I plan to do some finished pieces based off of those sketches. If you’d like a custom commission done drop me an email.
I am also slowly working on a digital comic book short. I’m doing it all digitally using a Bamboo tablet and Manga Studio 5. There has been a bit of a learning curve but I am starting to get the hang of it. It’s weird to be looking up while you are drawing. Plus the feeling of drawing on paper with pencil is lost since you are drawing on a smooth surface. So that is coming along very slowly.
At work I am focusing more & more on videography and video editing. There is a constant battle between quality of footage and editing that footage to tell a story. DSLR cameras have made it possible for everyone to have access to quality video but just having the equipment doesn’t mean you’ll have a quality story to tell. Easier said than done. So I’ll be doing alot more shooting and editing in the near future. Hopefully I’ll have some great pieces to share soon.
I’ve been a designer for 15 years. I love creating & sharing. So, I’m hoping this site is a place to help me do both. I do freelance work as well. If you’re interested in what I can do, please take a look at my portfolio.
I started out years ago in print and have now designed in several mediums; including interactive experiences, as well as video and motion graphics.
