Hi all this is my first Blog entry, so I thought I would give you a brief personal Details entry:
I am an illustrator/ texture artist that has been working professionally for 14 years. A graduate of St Clair college in Windsor ,Ontario Canada (where I was born and raised) I started as an Art Director for Ross Roy/BBDO doing Catalogue and direct mail design for Chrysler Corp. Canada. I then returned to my home college to be a professor of Graphic Design, specializing in teaching traditional and digital illustration and Design. I have freelanced as a fantasy art illustrator working for TSR as early as 1993, and then moved on to paint for Magic The Gathering for Wizards of the Coast in 1998. Having painted well over 75 cards in all -I know longer get work from them, hmmmm?
Currently I am a Senior Artist at Raven Software (since 2002) working on Prev Gen and Next Gen console games focusing on character and level texturing, promotional and load screen paintings, as well as concept art. I have shipped all of the X men Legends franchise action RPG's, and have just finished Marvel Ultimate Alliance this Nov., I am currently underway with the team at Raven working on a new title, which has yet to be announced. I now spend my free time undertaking personal projects such as 'Filling Valhalla" and 'Victory Gals' to expand my technique and stay current and competitive in the digital art community.
I invite any and members to posts questions or comments here. I'll do my best to keep things up to date and interesting
