Movies and television have always been a big source of inspiration and escape in my life. As an awkward kid a lot of my days were spent drawing and watching whatever could take me on a great adventure on my TV. I graduated from Ringling School of Art and Design in 2003 with my degree in Illustration, and was able to participate in the production of a film providing initial concept and character designs. Though my focus in illustration is different today I still look to movies for inspiration and escape. When I look at movies I also pay as much attention to the visual elements in the story as I do the actors on screen. A good movie uses every tool to tell its story.
