I grew up in an artistic family. Whether visual, musical, writing, drama or even the art of plastering & construction, we had a hand in it. I took my talents to art school & painted for a while. I even co-ran a gallery & performance space before I decided that I had my music career to fall back on with a touring band. Once I had my head screwed on straight, I returned to art via advertising & illustration.
I still dabble in paint from time to time, but I derive the majority of my joy by working digitally. I've been working as a designer & illustrator for almost 30 years, which seems like a long time, but I'm still working and learning something new every day.
I'm happily married with kids & too many dogs in Crown Point, Indiana. I'm a member of a great men's fitness group, F3 Nation & I occasionally do the odd mud run, obstacle course race and sometimes strap a heavy rucksack to myself & do a GORUCK challenge with twenty to ninety of my friends. In doing so, I like to pretend that I'm younger than I am.
