Give Your Project to an Artist!

I am an artist. It's my full time day job as a graphic designer of book covers, flyers, posters, logos and such, and also what I choose to do in my free time as a photographer, painter, sculpter and digital multi-media artist.

Why is this important?
Because it allows me to think "outside the box" when it comes to book cover designs, logos and other graphics projects.

What does this mean to You?
It means that the possibilites of what's possible for your graphic design project are greatly expanded, and the approaches that can be taken to get there are also multiplied, exponentially.

Experience Matters
I have been an artist all my life. I have been designing book covers since 1989, and I've been doing general graphics since the mid eighties when my partner and I started one of the first computer graphics studios on the West coast.

I've been using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and other Best-of-Breed graphic software programs for decades.

This is important because far too many graphic designers come to it because they're "arty," they have a computer and figure maybe they could make some money doing graphics.

Unfortunately, I'm asked to clean up (or more often redo) book covers and other graphics projects that are attempted by well meaning individuals who just don't have the experience and technical skills.

Look at my work
Please check out the portfolios I've published on this site to see the diversity and breadth of my style and abilities.

Then give me a call, I'd love to talk to you about your project!
