His art ranges from near photo realistic to cartoon with subjects from cute dragons to horror, and his sense of humor can best (and probably generously) be described as somewhat off the wall—and seems to involve a lot of tentacles. He started working in illustration as a concentration in 2006 and fell in love with oil paints a couple of years later (after a torturous affair with acrylics—they’ve since reconciled) and began sculpting in 2011. His clients include many gaming companies such as Hero Games, Blackwyrm, Sacrosanct Games, and Chaosium as well as small press publishing companies, and Cambridge University Press. His awards include 3 time winner of Most Humorous, as well as Best Dragon, Best Amazon, and Best Horror for the Dragon Con Art Show. When he’s not drawing, painting, or sculpting (with the occasional bout of sleeping or even spending time with his family), he can be found either singing in choral groups or composing music and holds a degree in music from Kennesaw State University.
