Animation Boards

Worked on boarding an anime. It was an exciting project. I had to draw on model, and was given a tight deadline. I was able to get the job out and liked by the clients.

Live Action Boards

These are boards I drew for different live action features at Pulse Films. Usually these projects are rushed, but I always meet my deadlines.

TV Commercials Boards

I’ve worked on a variety of TV Commercials. Generally they come with a tight deadline, yet I can draw ink and toned boards in under a day. You can see My Uggs commercial here.  The short deadlines also gives the opportunity to work on lots of  new exciting project.

Another commercial I boarded was for HP.  I was given some freedom with the boards, as there were lots of decisions to be made before the commercial.  I planned the first version over night, I then handled each revision as the ideas become more grounded. Each revision had to be done quick, in a few hours, so that they could be presented to the producers. The final video can be seen here. I enjoy the playful nature of the commercial, and the humor really sells it to me.

Music Video Boards

Boarded this rocking tecno music video for Doomsday films. Drawn and presented in 8 hours.

Apple and Android Development

I have created art and programmed sticker and apps for both operating systems. You can download my current sticker pack here.

Comic Work

I’ve made a lot of comics. Here are a few samples.  Comics are lots of fun to do. Designing characters,  story telling, and graphic design all come together to make one great thing, which is awesome!

Graphic Design

Various graphical projects I have worked on. They range from icons to flyers at Dodger Stadium.  I used various tools, like Adobe Illustrator, pencils, Adobe Flash, and more. I try to make my designs fun.  What’s important to me is controlling the movement of the eye of the viewer.  I try to create visual guides that guide the viewer throughout the design, while at the same time telling a visual story. I hope to create a design that people enjoy seeing and want to look at.

Illustration

Various illustrations I’ve made for books, art shows, or other outlets.  I normally color in Adobe Photoshop. I am proficient in various skills. I can ink by hand, or digitally. I am a master of Photoshop, and know it in and out. Illustration is my specialty.

Drink & Draw and Comic Bug

I’m a part of many art communities in Los Angeles. Among them I help run the Drink and Draw with Dan social group with Panosian, Jeff Johnson, and Dave Johnson.

I also hang and sometimes work with Mike Wellman at the Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach. The comic bug is number one place to buy comics.

Comic Panels and Charity

I try to give back. I volunteer at school, hospitals and other locations to help inspire or cheer up children. I also draw free sketches for kids and fans during free comic book day. I also hold comic panels where I try to teach lessons to aspiring artists.

About

I am an artist living in the Los Angeles area.  I am experienced and a fan of comics, video games, and film.  I have worked storyboarding, drawing comics, and designing mobile games.  Anything that involves storytelling makes me excited.  Graphic design I also find exciting, as I try to illustrate a visual story in my designs that lead the viewer and their desire to want the product.

I became a fan of the visual arts early on in preschool after reading a Captain America comic.  This comic made me want more and when I visited my first comic book shop, Geoffrey’s Comics, I bought X-men #1 drawn by Jim Lee.   After reading X-Men #1, I decided to work in the visual arts and have worked at it ever since.

My skills extend beyond illustration. I am an adept programmer and know various programing languages: C++, AS3, html, CSS, and WordPress.  I know a variety of programs and even know video and sounds editing software. I can do graphical designs by hand and on computer. In truth, I enjoy learning and applying new skills.
