    Tech Savy Traditional Media Fantasy Art and Childrens book Illustrator

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 1

    I am a freelance illustrator that specializes in traditional media fantasy art. I work heavily in black and white ink illustrations. When I do color I use washes and markers with colored pencils for detail work. While I am skilled in computer art I just prefer the feel of traditional media in my hands. I will however use the computer to do work as needed. My Illustrating style focuses heavily on line work and I have worked hard over 15 years to create a style that is uniquely my own. I drawn inspiration from Bernie Wrightson, Alphonse Mucha, the older black and white Dungeons and Dragons illustrations, and even Japanese Manga. I recently finished a Huge contract job for Cobalt Pulsar Games called "There's a Game in This Book". My work can be seen at: I am currently dealing with a condition that only allows me to work for a couple hours at a time before giving me debilitating headaches. Because of this I am also looking for work that is very flexible in the time that I work. I still WANT to work several hours in a day, just not all in one go. The jobs I am most interested in are ones that will utilize my tech skills and knowledge, my game design, illustration, web design background, and will let me use them in small to medium sized contract work that allows for flexibility. While I admittedly prefer illustration work, as that's where my passion lies, I am still a professional and will do any and all work to the best of my abilities and full dedication. I have worked several years in many techincial jobs. I have certifications in the full Microsoft suite of office tools, certifications in network and ip configurations, windows configuration and deployment, and years of help desk experience across all windows platforms and macs, and an experienced user in remote desktop work. My going rate is more for my illustration work and I am more than willing to negotiate. If I have applied for the job you have posted then more than likely I am perfectly fine with the pay rate you have posted on it.
