So, I'm certainly what could best be described as a "dabbler" as far as art goes. Back in the day (circa 2008) I worked as a medical and technical illustrator making pretty drawings for textbooks, which segued into an ongoing freelancing gig. I've been pretty thrilled to have the opportunity to make drawings for some big science periodicals like National Geographic, Scientific American, and the Journal Nature - but I really enjoy doing my own thing.
Around 2011, I decided to forget everything art school taught me and just make art I wanted to make without torturing myself over concept, and I've been showing stuff around LA ever since then. I started digitally, and then moved to traditional medium - colored pencils, chalk pastels, and pen and ink.
I have a cool day job as an artistic recruiter for the VFX industry, that also lets me get in there and work on matte painting and texturing work from time to time for some awesome TV shows. I consider myself quite lucky that I've found a job that let's me to meet all sorts of amazing artists and work on cool projects, while keeping the regular hours that allow me to make my own work.
Current projects include - ongoing drawings in various stages of disarray, a blog full of tips/tricks for artists looking for work, writing a story for a comic series, and various personal matte painting projects. So much time, too little to do!
