About

Tale of a Superhero!

Well this isn't quite as fantastic as Supermans origin or as dark as Batman's but, it is interesting.

I was smart in school but, got in trouble often. It was always for the same thing... drawing in class. I can't tell you how many times my mother had to come to the school and sit through teacher after teacher telling her about how much of a waste of intellegence I was because all I wanted to do was draw.

That's more or less the story of my school career until high school. Thats when I came to the realization that my hobby from my younger years had at some point become a skill and a potentially lucrative one at that. I began to draw tatoo artwork for the students at my school for about 5.00 each and that was how I paid for lunch at school or a snack after. I did all kinds of small art jobs like that and it eventually got me noticed by the school staff in a good way. They commissioned me paint three murals in the high school office and nurses office. I was an instant celebrity.

Suddenly I had alot more artwork requests coming at me, not just the 5.00 tattoo art here and there. I realized then that I could make real money doing something that is hardwired into my brain to do constantly anyway.

Jump forward about eight years and here I am 26 and making a small splash here in Orlando, Fl as a local comic book artist. I even got invited to be a guest artist at a comic convention in town... a dream come true on so many levels.

And so the next step has been to market myself to the rest of the world and see what kind of success that has in store. I have only been using the internet to sell/market my work for a brief time but, the response had been wonderful. That about wraps it all up, I hope you learned a bit about me and thanks a great deal for your time...I look forward to making some artwork for you. Take care!! :)

    I'm a full-time illustrator living in Orlando, Florida. My wife and I sell my artwork to fund my artistic ventures. What is unique about my designs is they're all traditionally illustrated. I use as few digital tools as possible. I like it that way.
