My Process

     Every assignment begins with sketches until a few great ideas reveal themselves. Since these are in my own visual shorthand I select the best (usually three) for a more finished treatment. These rough "comps" are submitted for approval and any adjustments as necesssary. Though I am constantly researching throughout, this is when the reference becomes most important. After approvals, the final art is created, submitted (on time!), and ready to publish.

     I am dedicated to making the best art and always giving more than expected.

It is simply what I do....
