I work in a variety media and styles to create illustrations that serve their purpose. My tool box includes both traditional and digital media and I am adept at working between them to provide art that works both technically and conceptually. Every picture should tell a story. This is at the core of my art practice.

Line Art & Logos

Sometimes the answer to an illustration challenge is simply black and white (or one color). Line art is clear, economical to reproduce and a useful contrast with full color imagery. It is an important consideration for logos, icons and signage. You can find more of my logo designs on my Calligraphy page.
