Overview

I'm an illustrator working in the San Francisco Bay Area. My work focuses on creating unique worlds that are surreal, whimsical, and full of mood and fantasy. I want the reader to feel immersed in the scene and feel as if they were part of the story. I'm a big fan of the process of collaborating with other writers and creators: world building, character sketching, and brainstorming ideas. One of the biggest rewards is bringing to life a writers voice with pictures.

I’ve been illustrator for 10 years experience in editorial and book illustration. My clients include Mcsweeny’s, 826 Valencia, Darkhorse comics, Boom! Comics, The Boston Globe, SF Gate, and NBC Sports, Ken Fulk Designs
