Is being a nerd cool? Whether it is or not I can't hide the fact I love comics, history (especially WWII), paleontology, art history, and science. I have both a BFA from SVA and a MA from FIT. It's the alphabet soup of degrees. I have been freelancing since 1998 doing mostly editorial illustrations, magazine designs, and advertising design. I teach illustration and design at local colleges and universities. My primary choices of media is pen and ink with digital color, and oils. Along with all that other stuff I enjoy writing and currently run a blog at http://talesfromtheemeraldcit...spot.com/, about my move west to Boulder, Colorado. Any more info and I'll need to copyright this.
