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.
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.
Promotional Material Illustrations
As a freelance illustrator, I have been commissioned by videographers, musicians and authors for several projects, some of which include: video title cards, music album covers, promotional posters, character designs and an award-winning comic convention design.
