character design . . .
One of favorite areas in design is character creation. For as long as I can remember, I was coming up with these interesting and colorful characters, even long before I knew just exactly what it was. You can be really free and loose or rigid and challenge yourself with some set limits. Below are some examples of my designs. These characters are my most beloved, and are just shown for reference. They are my intellectual property I spent many years cultivating, and I have no intention of selling these designs. If you are interested in my making concept art, or designing characters, send an email ( labeled accordingly ). Thanks!

layout + logo design. . .
Eye Spy Art Shop is a personal creative project that began development in late 2015. The core idea was to create a virtual shop that provided the service of art laid out in a visual novel like format. The shop was traditionally sketched, digitally rendered and bbcoded in a forum style layout.
The purpose of its creation was to test the waters with running a small online business via virtual currency (at low risk, high reward test run).
The shop began its final stages of construction and installation on September 1, 2016, had it's Grand Opening on July 31, 2017 and was most recently updated on June 28, 2018.
Cookie's Baekery is a personal creative project that began development in 2017. After great success with the fullfilment of Eye Spy, I wanted to replicate the virtual shop with a new aesthetic. In addition to expanding the idea, I opted to add additional payment methods. I kept with the visual novel format, but gave it an overall cafe like twist. The graphics were traditionally sketched, digitally rendered and bbcoded in a forum style layout.
The shop had its installation and debut on May 7, 2018, It was most recently updated on May 14, 2019.
package + print . . .
Packaging and print are some the most important forms of design. It's all around us and touches us in everyday life.
In my current position, I work on a variety of design jobs, focusing primary on spirit shirts for local school, as well as custom designs. Some paid clip art was used (as it is typically suggested), but creation and composition is 100% my own. Creative freedom varies job to job.
