My Process

I've been illustrating in vector for more than a decade and have a highly practiced and developed process for creating my portraits. Once I have suitable source material, I will draw a silhouette of the face and build each tone in layers (usually from dark to light) using the silhouette as a mask. My typical portraits require 18-26 layers for face and attire, taking anywhere from five to twelve hours to complete. I work directly from photographs and everything is a product of a practiced eye; mine is a filter-free and assistance-free process. This entire gallery of portraits is hand-plotted by way of my trusty mouse using the pen tool in Adobe Photoshop (my program of choice for twenty years.)

    Owner, Artist

    Raised in Albuquerque, my first efforts in digital art began as a child, drawing pixel portraits of professional wrestlers on my grandpa's Mac Plus. I graduated from MacPaint to Photoshop 20 years ago and have since turned to more serious subjects.

Frequently asked questions
Do I need to pay customs if I am in the EU?

No, I'm happy to report. My production partner has printing facilities in Latvia and my EU orders ship from there. So all EU orders are exempt from customs (unless otherwise stated.)
