I'll try not to sound pretentious, but I'm an illustrator because I love telling stories and creating characters. I love creating the worlds these characters live in and I find it very fulfilling that others also enjoy the things I create. Ultimately, I want to tell meaningful stories that make a difference and influence people's lives. . . but for now I don't mind drawing aliens, monsters, and guys with crazy swords!
Right now I'm doing concept art for video games, but I can see my path getting into film design, children's books, or comics.
I'll add more later, this should be enough for now. . . hope you enjoy my work!
