PROFESSIONAL PORTFOLIO

The Fate of Owari Illustrations

In 2016, I developed a concept for a comic that would inform its readers of the cultural importance of and the methods currently being used to preserve retro video games and their historical significance.  Formatting the story as a comic allowed me to employ my strengths as an illustrator and storyteller and reach out to a broader audience beyond “gamers”.

Research also included experimentation with medium and format (i.e. – watercolors, digital illustration, pixel art, story boarding and sequential imaging).

Book and Editorial Illustrations

Illustrating for books and editorial pieces requires a separate set of techniques: The ability to capture an author’s themes or story elements in a single image on top of gearing the style and imagery for the appropriate audience.

Retroware Illustrations

Retrowaretv.com is a website created by and for the retro video gaming community.  While working on the site as a designer and web comic artist, I created retro video game themed posters and developed an on going comic story starring the site’s content creators as well as original and classic video game characters.
