It's an honor to be shown with this group of illustrators.. Such an extraordinary pool of light-pushing skills, I can hardly begin to explain? Suffice it to say, big ups to Mr. Craig Spearing for rounding this creative brain trust! Here are some of my own wig bubbles, and I can't wait to see what contributions and potentials lie in this brilliant collective.. =)
I've been fortunate enough to have illustrated for the science fiction & fantasy gaming markets for over 12 years, graduated from Detroit's own College of Creative Studies in 93, but like Craig, a lot of time was spent studying traditional materials, ceramics, printmaking and bookarts. My oil paintings and prints have appeared in Spectrum, ImagineFX, I've won some awards, and I've authored and co-authored two fantasy art tutorial books from Impact; Wreaking Havoc, 2007 and Fantasy Genesis, 2010 (plug =) I've freelanced for; NBC/Universal, Pyr/Prometheus Books, Wizards of the Coast, Paizo, Upper Deck, AEG, Games Workshop, Road Runner and Atlantic Records, and have recently had the great privilege to start teaching a couple classes at the PNCA here in Portland, OR! It's an odd sensation, teaching your eventual replacements, but a path I'd like to continue.. =)
Thanks for the once over, and really hope to meet up at
ECCC, or any Cons we all might be attending..
