There are some days when I get a bit ahead of myself and think, "You know, with enough practice and determination, maybe one day I'll be able to make a living with my artwork."

And then I look at Eddy Barrows and go, "Yeah...nevermind."

I've always loved to draw but never had any formal training, so it's just a hobby--but it's one of my favorites. Unfortunately 99% of the time it's only sketches, and I rarely have the time to devote to a finished piece.

I've always had a love for comics and when I was in my early teens I got pretty heavy into anime. Now I'm back on the comics path and have really gotten into DC, although when I was younger I preferred Marvel.

If you're interested in checking out some of the motion graphics I have created, check out my demo reel here: www.vimeo.com/26627259

Hey, my friend! How are you doing? Haven't talked to you in quite a while! How are things going in your new job? Man, for the past few months, I've felt like work has pretty much taken over my life...such a shame! I hope you are alright, buddy! :)

Hey, thanks Jeff! Actually, Jela's Phat Phibs isn't my website--I was just hired to create the artwork for it. The owner is a friend of mine though so I was happy to help. I wasn't really a fan of reptiles beforehand, but after creating the art and learning about different types of frogs and lizards, I've definitely become a lot more interested.

If you like the artwork, there's a Store section on the site where you can order a T-shirt with a Phat Phib or a Badass Beardie on it. Check it out if you're interested!

Thanks for stopping by!
