I exercise quality over quantity, because nothing is more satisfying than delivering a beautifully polished product to a happy client. Happy clients mean more work, more money, and an outstanding reputation!
Leading a team to success is a dream of mine. Someday, I would love to lead a talented team of passionate, innovative individuals and create notable works that will leave a lasting impression upon many individuals for years to come.
Many of my design inspirations derive from video games. I study everything from the user interface design, experience design, and game mechanics down to the the artwork, animation, and story. Many concepts from this complex art form can be applied to a variety of projects to create innovative experiences for its target end users.
Animated films stimulate my creative juices. Seeing an artist use a pencil (or Wacom pen) to breathe life into a character is insanely exciting to me. Sometimes I pause the film repeatedly just to view the details and learn from their designs.
I'm an art book-aholic, and for a good reason. I utilize art books to not only feed myself art inspirations, but also educate myself on processes. I love getting inside the heads of my favorite artists and seeing their projects blossom into something grand.
