I am a 2D digital artist with over 10 years’ experience as illustrator, concept artist and art director in animation, advertising, gaming and film. When I’m not knee-deep in the digital world, I enjoy some ‘me’ time in my home-based studio, working with watercolors and oil paintings, or adding new designs to my own line of handmade jewelry.
Filter selected works to:
A quick study of both technique and human anatomy. Watercolor, salt and inks on rough paper.
Hand-pierced silver scroll pendant and matching earrings. The pierced accents are filled with transparent vitreous enamel.
A one of a kind silver pendant cast from a hand-carved wax model. Pierced accents are filled with vitreous enamel.
Antiquated brass-cast ring engraved with Arabic letters. Part of my 2010 collection, it was an instant sell-out.
2D digital painting/ study of water and textures; contrary to common belief no part of this was rendered in 3D.
Odd I was such a huge fan of the Jak series giving that I've never actually played any of them!
"Khoon" is an original character and quite an old piece, but he's still one of my favorites.
Promo art of a scene from the short 3D animated film "Once Upon A Star".
A hellish steed, one of the many original creatures and characters belonging to a personal project.
A handmade sterling silver "box" cuff with etched and reticulated details, part of my personal collection (not available for purchase).
An unfinished study as I decided to leave it as is. Oils on canvas.
A 2D digital illustration that took up way too much of my time than it should have; it's sometimes hard to pull away from the thrilling challenge of tiny details.

Concept sketch from the award-winning 3D short animation "Once Upon A Star".
Personal work. Obviously some Bob Rafei influence going on in this one (and many others as well).

A digital painting mostly done as a texture and contrast 'test' that just took off with a life of its own.
Mixed metals and enamels, this massive piece specifically designed for an exhibition (not available for purchase).

An original character designed for an RPG. The elf-fever will ever be present.
An original character with an odd name, one of his initial digital concepts.

Yup. More Bob Rafei fan art. His elves were all I was drawing for a while.
