I have been an Illustrator and Designer for over 30 years now…
I have done Comic Books, Book Design, Web Design and Tattoo Design, even Designed a Bar interior.
My Style and goals are influenced by the following Artists and Designers, in no particular order.
Bob Peak, Howard Chaykin, Jim Steranko, Walter Simonson, John Berkey, Alex Toth, Ludwig Hohlwein, and Syd Mead. I could list many others, but there just is not enough room.
My belief is that “Less is More” in Design and Art, that the essential message should be distilled out of the concept, and the core message should be of the most importance.
In today’s age of digital tools, too many Artists think clutter and overworking an image is style, just because you have a tool at your disposal, does not mean you are obligated to use it.
I try to use Open Source solutions and software whenever possible.
I am VERY interested in Blender and it’s potential, so I am focusing heavily on learning Blender and moving into 3D.
