Illustration

As I kid, I loved creating pencil drawings of wildlife and sports figures. I had a knack for being able to draw realistically, and had some great teachers along the way that helped me develop those skills. Illustrating for me is a very creative process, and I love striving to get better, to always be learning new techniques and create something interesting.
