New Portfolio

I am an artist, and illustrator, and a book cover designer. I have been asked quite a bit in the past for a link to my portfolio where people could see examples of not only my cover design, but my illustrations, maps, and logos as well.

All I had to share was a link to an album on Google+ which I doubt did a very good job of showcasing my work.

So today I took the time to put together some graphic design banners that feature my work and then used Youtube to put them to music and tada! I have a brand new video portfolio that I am going to share on my about me page.

All said and done, not counting the time it took to create the artwork, logos, maps and book covers, the entire video took me about six hours to make.

I’d love to get your feedback on it, I need to know if everything is clearly visible or if I need to make a few adjustments.

Either way, I appreciate you taking the time to check it out šŸ™‚

If you are interested in any of the services I provide, you can find them here.

Thanks again for watching!

Once every three months I volunteer my design services to help an indieĀ author get their book and their brand off to a colorful start.

I have been so blessed by, and so welcomed by the indie author community, that I thought this was the least I could do to give back to them.

I do not publicize that I volunteered my time and services to you, so your privacy is respected.

New Character Painting 007

Character 007 Painted 3 small

These girls are my first round of character paintings for Stuart Harper’s new book “The Lost and the Drowned” due to be published sometime this winter. Its a Young Adult Dark Victorian story about a pair of orphan sisters up against an otherworldly force. I enjoyed reading it and was excited to be working with Stuart again. I illustrated the cover of “Death on the Empress” for him last year.
