Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I am an illustrator and art teacher. I live in Atlanta, Georgia. I normally work traditionally, but I also have skills with digital programs if needed. I love sci-fi and fantasy art. Some of my favorite illustrators are J.C. Leyendecker, Drew Struzan, Alphonse Mucha, Donato Giancola and Frank Frazetta. I also love comics and I have too many artists that I like, but I am a huge fan of Adam Hughes, Amanda Conner, Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, J. Scott Campbell and Olivier Coipel just to name a few.

Current Residence: Atlanta
Favourite genre of music: Thrash Metal, Death Metal, Power Metal, Melodic Death Metal
Favourite style of art: Sci-Fi Fantasy and Comics
Operating System: PC
MP3 player of choice: IPOD
Favourite cartoon character: Optimus Prime
Personal Quote: Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and to hear the lamentations of the women.


I am currently writing and illustrating my own children's book.  The first four pages of line art are finished and I have posted them on my art blog.  Overall I have more than 30 illustrations to create.  This project should take me at least a year to complete.  I will post the finished illustrations here on my deviantart page as well.  The work is quite different from my bird and nature paintings but I hope you guys dig them.  I am still undecided on whether or not I will color the illustrations traditionally or digitally.

Here is the link to my art blog and the first four pages of line art:
