Tell us a little about yourself ~
I am a full-time freelance lettering artist, graphic & type designer. Originally from Columbus, Ohio but moved to Phoenix, AZ when I was 10.
What do you like about your medium ~
It allows me to get back to my roots within the “art” world by drawing every day. I get to do what I love and it doesn’t feel like work!
What is the most challenging part about your medium ~
Right now the most challenging part is an internal struggle I have with digital vs analog tools. The analog tools bring some great results and allow quick ideas but, at the end of the day, it sadly comes down to efficiency and saving time for various client projects.
What is your process like ~
I work on a variety of project types so it varies slightly per project. Overall, I always begin with a research stage to better understand style, composition, color, etc that we’re trying to achieve. After, the concepting stage begins and taken further in finalization, adding color/texture and providing the client with the final product.
