Hello, let me introduce myself ...



  • I've been subscribed with SVS since January, and other than lurking around the forum I haven't really interacted yet. So here we go!

    I am an illustrator and fine artist (but aren't they pretty much the same?) I have had some consistent work as an editorial illustrator but I still have to work outside the studio to pay the bills and take care of the family. I am hoping that it will be soon that I don't have to do so much outside work.

    I am interested mostly in editorial illustration, but I really like all kinds of genres. I am currently working on a horror/sci-fi graphic novel that I hope to finish the story and art by this December. I also keep busy doing portraits of children and pets. I've been toying with the idea of creating some children's books and so that is why I enjoy participating with SVS. I have very little time for personal projects but I try to make time for it when I get going on an idea.

    I am looking forward to interacting more in the forums. There is a lot of very inspiring work here.

    Here are some examples of my work if you care to see.
