Summary

I am a professional illustrator, experienced with cover-illustration for books, creating trading card game artwork, illustrating characters for in-game purposes (such as character select screens), illustrating and designing characters for stories in media (books and video games), creating environments and experienced with worldbuilding and crafting a strong plot for any project. I am able to provide fast sketches or colour-sketches, thumbnail images, and more, to illustrate initial ideas as well as fleshing out chosen ideas up to high detail-level artwork.
