Summary

I am a life-long student of art history, and I try to apply that to my commercial art career as often as I can. If art history has taught me anything, it’s that the most memorable creators had the courage to attempt a different approach to art that no one had ever thought of before.

I am a freelance artist always looking for new creative opportunities. Some of my past clients include Twitter, Samsung, New Balance, Bluescape, Ubisoft, and FANDOM. I also used to be a full-time artist at Wargaming America (creators of the World of Tanks video game franchise) and Jinx, where I designed licensed T-shirt graphics and other merchandise for Mojang (Minecraft), Blizzard (World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Hearthstone, Diablo), 343 Industries (Halo), and CDProjektRed (The Witcher). My licensed apparel designs can be found at Hot Topic, Target, Kohls, and Amazon. I also go by the alias "Prolific Pen” and write the popular webcomic Prolific Pen Comics which currently has over 95K readers on social media.
