Illustration is my main area of expertise, despite also having experience in graphic design in addition. I have been drawing for most of my life, and digitally since 2010. Here is a collection of some of my personal work that focuses on some of my favorite comic characters (fan art).
Since August of 2016 I have been doing freelance work for Marvel Entertainment, starting with color rendering work for their character licensing artwork. At the beginning of 2018, I was finally given the chance to draw characters from scratch. I hope to do more in the near future.
Over the past year I have illustrated several pieces of cover art for various clients, including main / variant covers for the fantasy series called Skylin that I’ve been working on for Charon Comics.
Samples 1-3 are pages I worked on from Charon Comics’ “Skylin” issue 2 which was my first full length comic project. Samples 4-16 are pages from a recent comic project (three issues in volume 1) I completed for Midnight & A Half Creative, titled “Villains Seeking Hero." These pages were drawn and inked by me, with colors by artists Ben Matsuya and Roshan Kurichiynil.
One thing I love to do with my illustration skills is create personalized commissions for people - whether it's a portrait or a piece of someone drawn as their favorite superhero, I can bring the vision to life.
Here’s a collection of some of my rough sketches from my digital sketchbook I’ve compiled throughout the past year. Before I begin drawing for client projects, I always start the day with warm-up sketches. Much like you need to warm up before a tough workout, it’s also important to warm up your mind and wrist for drawing. It’s key to always practice and improve as well, and doing these sketches is a great way to do so.
Graphic design is another useful skill to poses as an artist, because it requires you to use basic knowledge of layout, composition, typography, and photography to create visually appealing work for clients. These pieces range from posters, to magazine ads and promotional materials.
Here is a collection of my best logo design work ranging from many different clients and industries. A logo is one of the most important parts of any brand identity, and it's the element that appears everywhere from the website, to business cards and social media outlets.
