Artist/commercial illustrator/caricature artist/sculptor/tattoo artist/ t-shirt designer…but now I don’t work for anyone. I just paint and draw
I started drawing caricatures at Sea World in San Diego while in college. I did freelance editorial and humorous illustration for quite a few years before I began working for a commercial illustration and design firm in Santa Monica. There I worked as an in-house illustrator for a few years there before moving to Portland to work in a foundry as a sculptor. I left Oregon when I was hired as a t-shirt designer/illustrator for a large printed t-shirt company in Chico Ca. I worked there for ten years while intermittently working as a tattoo artist in a shop in a neighboring town. Now I just paint and draw for myself…still all day long. Luckily, I now make my living as a walnut farmer. As a conservative artist I am heavily abused by the big tech social media platforms. Not many people see my work.
