Comic Book Artist / Illustrator

I have been a working professional artist for most of my life.  I have been published in comics, created 3D animation and characters for television, illustrated storyboards for commercials, and owned and operated my own design firm successfully for over 15 years.  

I am currently a professional freelance illustrator and comic artist where I create digital art for my clients. I create sequential art and character concepts.

I now share my knowledge in digital art and computer software through online platforms such as Udemy and have a growing Youtube channel as well. With over 46,000 Youtube subscribers and quickly growing I felt I should create some more in depth content for students wanting to take their skills to the next level.

My goal is to help aspiring artists realize their potential and break their mental barriers that hold them back from creating the artwork of their dreams. We can all do it with the right instruction and work ethic. That is what I am here to teach my students.

I am very dedicated to my students and responsive to any of your questions so please don't hesitate to ask. I am here to help!
