Overview

Having worked in art departments of major publishing companies in the United States, such as Simon & Schuster and Penguin Books, I apply my knowledge from those experiences as a freelancer. I am capable of heavy photo manipulation and photo-based digital illustration. I can also work with models and have a photo shoot and superimpose a model into a desired background seamlessly. I can also do vector graphics work for the title type treatment when necessary. Other than technical capabilities, the most valuable knowledge I can bring to the table is knowing which approach works (and doesn't work) for different genres.
