I decided to write this to give a bit of information about myself and my work. I am always full with work and this means that I do not have the time to respond to my messages and my notes in a timely manner. Nevertheless, trust that I read each and every one of the messages that I receive and that I appreciate every single one of you and that I will eventually get to respond to all of you. I really thank you for your support, it makes me keep on going and keep on pushing myself to make better art everyday.

I have also decided to make a small FAQ section here so people know whats up with stuff like commissions or my technique or anything else that you guys might usually wonder. So here it is!

Do you take commissions?
Unfortunately, not at the moment.

How can I contact you directly?

If you want to talk business, email me at:
If you want to just chat and be friends keep on reading :)

Can I use your already made stuff for my own project / album / whatever?
No. Unfortunately I have to be quite strict about this since some of my work may already be in use by someone else. I want to avoid not being able to upload client work and show you guys everything that I do. Please dont steal my work. If you want something done for a project just contact me and we can definitely reach an agreement! I am usually very relaxed with pricing and everything.

What software do you use?
My favorite weapon is Adobe Photoshop CS6. But I also know how to use Illustrator, Corel Painter, InDesign, and Sketchbook pro, among other things.

What software do you use to record your process?
The program is called "iShow U HD" but if you are interested in recording yourself there are plenty of programs out there like iShow U or Camtasia,

Where can I find your videos?
You can find them right here:

Why are your videos so fast!?? I thought they were tutorials!!

First of all, I started the recording of my own process to learn from myself and from my mistakes. Right now it is purely auto-didactic. I have been considering to make a proper tutorial but I still have tons to learn myself. But I will let you know when I come up with one :)

What hardware do you use?
I have a Cintiq 24HD touch at home in which I make most of my work and speedpaints. I also paint in a wireless intuos from time to time.

I want to be your friend!

Man I love making friends! You can follow me on my facebook page here:…

and / or you can add me as a friend here:…

Where did you study?
I finished my visual arts degree in Simon Fraser University, located in Vancouver BC, Canada. However, I also took a lot of training at a place called CGMA (Computer Graphics Master Academy)

If you have any more questions feel free to let me know! Dont be shy! Make some art!

Oh man, that game has some of the most beautiful artwork that I've ever seen. I played the Demo and was a bit dissapointed.
