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 🙂

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

Thanks again for watching!

Grace Kelley

“She would never have had a career in the theater,” Don Richardson told Robert Lacey, whose definitive biography, Grace, was published in 1994. Richardson was a theater director who worked with academy students, and he was also one of Grace’s lovers. “Great looks and style, yes, but no vocal horsepower.” One day, though, Richardson was studying some photographs he’d taken of Grace, and a headshot transfixed him. “When you looked at that picture, you were not looking at her. You were looking at the illusion of her.… The camera did more than love her. It was insane about her—just like I was. When I looked at that photograph, I knew that her future would have to be in pictures.”
