I've Been working in the game industry as an artist from '93 onward. The first game I worked on was System Shock at Looking Glass Technologies. My degree is from R.I.S.D. majoring in industrial design. They taught me how to think more creatively, instead of overly focusing on technique. I'm grateful for that, as ideas are never my problem. These days my focus is on painting concepts for myself, The more out-there the better. I'm trying to learn how to paint faster and keep a sense of detail with my new works. I love 3D as well and continue to do that for my work. Pleasure to be on this site, and best of wishes to you all.

thanks for the good words. i like the alt universe posters. time travel and alt timelines as subject matter is very cool to me too. what do you do to make those? do you study posters from real life in the thirties etc to get ideas? or do you have a time machine! i hope its the latter.....
