          I have been a freelance artist illustrator in San Diego for forty years. I excel in many styles and media including: computer graphics; pen & ink; marker; pastel; graphite; watercolor; and acrylic paint. I conceptualize from minimal input. I am a storyboard specialist. Although I am not a "trendy" illustrator, I am an adroit draftsman and can realistically render most anything from references. People are a favorite subject. My style tends toward "whimsical surrealism." I am computer savvy and able to provide finished illustrations in digital format. I am intelligent, quick, accurate and able to work with short deadlines and tight budgets. I give my clients what they want when they need it. Satisfaction guaranteed.
