For as far back as I can remember I have loved to draw and color. It was my wonderful wife who ,early in our marriage, encouraged me long ago to pursue this passion as a career. That decision has taken us many places; Sunny gulf coast Florida, where I received my bachelor of fine art degree from Ringling College of Art and Design, the senoran desert of Tucson where I gained a large chunk of my experience (7 years) working as an illustrator for ,the queen of color, Lisa Frank, and back to Texas where I now work as art director for Visual Promotions.
Along the way I also worked on some fun contracts with animation, teaching, creating video game assets, illustrating books and traditional painting. Though I love both traditional and digital media, my specialty has been sitting in front of a computer, especially Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
Here at Graphic River I focus on creating new tools: like pattern brushes, graphic styles and pattern swatches that allow fellow artists to work more quickly and achieve amazing levels of complexity with just a few clicks.
