Example Work

I’m heavily influenced by graphic and comic artwork. Some of my favourite comic artists are Bernie Wrightson, Terry Moore, Michael Allred, Jack Kirby, Stuart Immomen, Frank Miller, Eric Powell, Dave Dorman, and Mike Mignola.  Outside of comic artwork, I have always loved Edward Hopper and N.C. Wyeth, which are influences in my full colour illustrations and paintings. I have also loved studying the works of Mucha, Henri Matisse, Goya, and Paul Gauguin. In particular, I love the intricate and organic layouts of Mucha and is something I wish to expand upon more in my portfolio.

Sequential (Comic) Work

These are some unpublished examples of what I’ve done.

Logos

I love designing logos. Logos are always a reflection of an identity but also an expression of creativity. Some of the logos I’ve created are text based and others are symbol based; it all depends on the what the client needs and what suits their identity best.

For my designs, my process begins with rough pencil and coloured sketches. From there I choose the best of the designs and recreate them in Illustrator, while also creating a colour palette. I choose Illustrator as I can create vector designs that can be resized to any measurement without losing details.

 

Logo Booklet

A logo book is a detailed analysis of a logo. The book will tackle many of the ways a logo might be deployed, and how best to handle the logo in those situations so that the corporate identity remains readable and more importantly, standardized. A logo book can also branch out to larger corporate identity concepts such as what fonts to use and how to layout a letter.

Vector Designs

Vector designs are created in Adobe Illustrator. These clean looking illustrations are created with the precise placement of points and arcs. I love experimenting with new styles of vector designs and am excited to be adding more examples to this mini-portfolio in the near future.

 

Photoshop Edits & Designs

I use photoshop in a few different ways. One is to edit existing photographs, to either fix problems in the photo like light levels, clean up someone’s face, or to delete items in the image. I also edit photographs to add dramatic colour, bring colour to black and white images, and to make photomontages. A second usage for photoshop is to colour illustrations, creating flats and playing with various effects to give depth and character to the piece. A third usage is for creating designs, such as website mockups, magazine and book layouts, and singular graphics.

 

InDesign & Photoshop Designs

I love InDesign. After gaining an understanding of InDesign you will never go back to Word! I use InDesign for pretty much an text based project that has multiple pages (posters are created in Photoshop or Illustrator). While I love InDesign, I rarely if ever use it without a little spice added from Illustrator and Photoshop. Whenever graphics and effects are added to the document, I create them in Photoshop or Illustrator. Sometimes after the document is finished I may also give it a few more edits in Photoshop to provide a more polished look.

 

3D Designs

For the most part I have used Photoshop, Illustrator and most recently SketchUp for creating 3D Designs. The below image of a house was created in SketchUp.

Film Design & Storyboard Work

I have been fortunate to work on a few feature films, tv shows, and short films. On these projects I have created advertising booklets, logos, storyboards, and character and set designs. Because of my passion and experience creating comic books, my storyboards have been highly successful as I imagine different layout and framing options for the scenes.
