About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    I'm a freelance artist that specializes in photorealism and portraits, and new school style, vibrant color drawings.  I also make/edit/film videos and make custom arcade cabinets. I'm currently working on a comic book and several other projects right now, but I always have time to do portraits and such for customers.
