Photoshop Illustration

Aside from designing websites, drawing cartoons and storyboards and taking photos of my lovely bride for her website,, I also do tons of freelance Photoshop illustration for the advertising industry. I have had many requests to see what I mean by "Photoshop illustration" so I thought I'd share just a small sampling of some of the images I have created. I have posted the "before" images as well as the "final" art pieces.

My FIRST Animations

10 years ago, I was in art school in San Francisco where I studied illustration and 2D animation. This video is a compilation of my first ever pencil-test animations, drawn frame by frame in pencil and shot with a stop-motion camera. They are very crude but its fun to go back and see where one started so many years ago. I hope y'all enjoy.

Grand Vin de Big Pretentious

Thought I'd share the toon I created for a wine label for a friend in San Francisco. One of my quickest turn-arounds, it was commissioned, sketched, inked and approved within 4 hours. It's not my best work, but I thought it turned out cute and decided to share.
