Perhaps I need to learn to describe myself in more detail. Years of web programming – which I do along with illustration – have given me a compulsion to be a person of few words.
Anyway, I am a San Francisco-based cartoon character illustrator of animals and other creatures. Many of these characters entered my mind and told me to draw them; guiding and instructing me while I did so. I work hard to manifest them in their images. I hope they are pleased with the results.
My favorite media to create these illustrations and bring these entities to life: vector, 2D, 3D, watercolor, gouache, or sometimes a combination of any of these.
I also like to write poetry and prose when I have a chance; though I have never done it professionally (meaning: I’ve never been published=D).
I live in San Francisco, and have also lived in LA, New York City and Boston. Some day I would like to live in New Orleans. I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky. Recently I have been researching my family roots. The more I learn, the more I realize that despite my uneventful upbringing, I am a product of history that includes substances made illegal during Prohibition. One of these days I hope to have my illustrations depict this history…which has been repeated in other countries, and is now going on in parts of Mexico.
