Other Experience

The early part of my career was in Storyboard cleanup and revisions, starting in 1996; I've also worked in post-board layout, animation (traditional and Flash), character design, illustration, and have drawn countless commissions for many individual clients over the years. If we go further back to 1989, I can include perspective rendering of architectural designs. I've been drawing professionally for a long time indeed.
