I started an Architecture degree at Portland State University last Monday. I thought I would share my first couple drawing attempts using a Mayline. These are drawings of photographs taken of the Agosta house on San Juan Island, Washington. Color scans. Level adjustments in Photoshop to try to bring back some of the contrast of […]
Digital Artist (NIKE) HERENOW Creative October 2011 – December 2011 (3 months) Created NIKE apparel textures in Photoshop based off apparel concepts and photo reference. Apparel textures were then used in conjunction with their corresponding geometry to flesh out the interior of NIKE stores in Cinema 4D for pre-visualization purposes.
Technical Artist on “Chip” (Character model and rig) Personal Project 2006 – 2007 While attending college at the Art Institute of Portland I made a character rig called “Chip”, using Maya.

Lead Artist on Mafia Wars 2 (Zynga) Liquid Development February 2011 – March 2011 (2 months) I modeled and textured a couple buildings for the popular Facebook game Mafia Wars 2. All Mafia Wars 2 building concepts seen below were drawn by Ezra Hardman.

I haven’t tried to draw an imaginary character straight from my head […]
I went out to a Drink And Draw meetup.com event last night which was quite fun. I ended up at the Portland Art Museum drawing a Jeff Koons wood sculpt: “Buster Keaton”.
A couple of weeks ago my drawing class finished up. It was quite a lot of fun to draw so much again: a great break from the computer. Here’s most of the drawings I did over the term, including pictures of my mid-term and end-of-term reviews.
A couple days ago Brian Riggsbee, a game developer and Left 4 Dead 2 mapper, interviewed me about The Final Cut and my game development history. He did a fantastic job with the blog post of the interview on his website (images included!) I am having an issue posting the link to the interview here, […]
