Recently, I've been trying to expand this into a cartoon(ish) dimension, as it helps me create more varied paintings with a hint of naivety that I like to see in illustration work.
My professional work has been entirely freelance-based, and I take pleasure in working with clients across the world. A recent example of this is the web series "cheeky bites" which I do in collaboration with comedic writer Nicholas Maffe (Los Angeles). Short-sized, food-based webcomics of which you'll find examples on this page. Other clients have included school books, musical imagery, video game art, etc.
In my work, I try to keep a relaxed attitude with those I work with, as I like to involve myself in the projects if there's room for it. Illustration is part of my job, but I have other aptitudes too. For example, I also write, play music, and have worked on small video game projects. That is to say that I like to see projects in their entirety so that the illustrations become a natural part of the whole concept.
I try to be dynamic and my technical skills should allow me to adapt to diverse styles of work. So, whatever your idea, feel free to discuss it with me directly.
