Where do you work/provide a thorough description of your career, please?
Thanks, God bless!
I graduated from art school (SCAD) in June of 2010. In July of 2010 I started an art internship at Gizmodo.com. In August they were impressed with my work enough to create a new position at Gawker Media (The parent company of Gizmodo, Kotaku, Gawker, Lifehacker, etc.) as Contributing Illustrator.
Working there, I was on staff to illustrate or design imagery for them on the fly with tight deadlines. Each illustration posted had links to my facebook and website and I quickly got exposed to Gizmodo’s then 6+ million readers a day. As a result, my freelance career took off in parallel with working for Gawker. I have worked with a mess of clients doing illustration, portraits, branding, etc. including 3 covers for Game Informer, branding and illustration for Razer, merchandise for Wiz Khalifa, a 55 foot tour bus, medical illustrations for the American Association of Cancer Research, a few companies I can’t speak about publicly, a big game developer I can’t talk about publicly yet, CEOs of fortune 500 companies, and everything in between.
I left Gawker Media after 9 months of work there due to a need to focus all of my time on freelance work and now I live an incredibly comfortable lifestyle in Brooklyn, NY working from my home studio. As the scale of my clients and the subsequent paydays have increased exponentially, I have had more and more time to devote to a growing internet community of friends and followers across facebook, twitter, and tumblr doing random illustrations geared towards the web 2.0 audience.
My philosophy is making art for everyone—so you will see paintings so classy you need to wear a monocle to view them and paintings so juvenile and crass you would think a demented teen shat them out. I am 22 years old and doing exactly what I love to do.
