HOW I WORK
I primarily illustrate and color digitally which means I pencil, ink, and color artwork directly in Photoshop and Procreate which are two industry-standard programs. Work is delivered as a watermarked digital file (JPG) for client approval. Final images are delivered as layered PSD files.
