I have been making art since I was a child. I would say that goes most people but a lot of people lose that drive to create or “don’t have the time.” I love creating things and using different mediums and techniques. Although I choose to make work of things that I enjoy I try to make art that will be welcomed by many. My art is not complex or abstact. There is no unlying messages or secret vendetta to my work, I keep it simple. I attempt to make visually appealing work. I make art that most people can relate to and understand. I don’t like going to art galleries and looking at cliche art or things that are abstact to the point of absurdity. When I start a piece I have a theme in mind but it usually ends up different after I have finished it. Whether that’s a productive way of working or not isn’t important because it always seems to work out for me in the end.

This is a vector image of a Dr. Pepper can. This was the first vector image that I ever did using Adobe Illustrator. It went through two rough drafts to become what you see here. The content of my work often consists of things that I like and this piece is not excluded.


Mari-

This is a vector picture I created a few years ago. I designed it in Adobe Illustrator using a photograph of my friend Marilyn. For this project I attempted to make it look realistic. I added the plane to give the image more activity. Given my level of experience with Illustator at that time I feel good about the finished product.


Suess Land

I created this piece in Adobe Photoshop. It was my first attempt at using the program. When I designed this piece I didn’t really know what photoshop was used for. I pieced this together from found images and some of my own work. The background is a piece I did called bubbles in the sky and the Hot air balloon is from a photo I took. Although I didn’t use Photoshop as fully intended I still feel this piece is successful.


I work for a local promotions group in Las Vegas called RTYPromotions. The group promotes bands and puts on live music shows. This is the first flyer I created for them.

In my free time I enjoy making T-shirt designs. T-shirt graphics are easy to do and there are endless possiblities to make cool designs that would make interesting t-shirts. The top image is a T-shirt design I did with intentions of being produced in the future. I did this design because I am a big fan of Conan O’brien.

Animal Welfare is a big deal to me. I am a Vegan and an animal rights activist. I feel this design is proactive, simple and clean. I feel that it successfully expresses a message.


Trailor Wrap Design &

Morning Glory Restaurant concept

A few years ago the Engineering Department at UNLV held a contest for Graphic Dedign students. The department had a trailor that they wanted to have some designs put on the trailor. The top three are what I submitted to the contest and the bottom two are alternative ideas I had.


I designed the identity for a restaurant as if it existed. I decided the name and theme of this restaurant. I determined the look and feel to be similar to a breakfast cafe. “Morning Glory� was a restaurant that I created to cater mostly to Vegetarians and Vegans. I wanted the restaurant to be warm and friendly


Peter and Obama

I wanted to paint a picture that incorparated real and fictional characters. I chose Peter from the animated comedy “Family Guy.” I chose him simply because I enjoy the show. I also used Barak Obama the 44th President of the United States. I used him because he had all the news and media attention at the time. The dialogue between them is a play on Obama’s slogan “CHANGE We Can Believe In” and “Yes We Can.”

Charcoal and pastels

Punk Rock is a lifestlye/music/ fashion that has always had a sweet spot in my heart. I love the music above all. I did this piece in black and white charcoal. This is a small section of a larger picture from a CD booklet.

Screamer Acrylic Paint


Dali Fusion This drawing went through a transformation of sorts. I did this piece with charcoal, pastels, and a lot of eraser. Before this piece became a creepy portrait of myself with a maniacal mustache, it was a portrait I did of the great artist Salvador Dali. The first step I took with this drawing was piecing together two different pictures of Dali. When I complete the portrait of Dali I erased the entire face and drew my face in its place. I used the same expression and kept the mustache.
