My Bio

I am an illustrator, designer, and Fine artist. I often juggle between traditional and digital mediums. I am the father to five amazing kids and live in a small college town. I earned my Bachelors Degree from BYU-IDAHO in 2007 and I began my Masters at the Academy of Art Univeristy in 2009. I often sketch in blue BIC pen as well as in digital programs like Krita or Photoshop. Traditionally I love painting in Oil. I love painting landscapes and following the fantasy and science fiction genre's. I also have done web design. Visit my website for a more of my work:

Something dangerous is looking through old sketchbooks.  Once you see an old concept you loved, you simply have to take a go at it...because you know you can do so much better.  Well, that and finding some old stuff that was actually good is fun too.  The New Emerald post is one of those kinds of things.  There are so many pieces of art I have...some good, some bad.  So, which to upload?  Incisions, Incisions.
