CREATIVE DIRECTION

I handled curation and creative direction for Loot Crate as the Creative Lead of Loot Anime and Sanrio. What this required was visualizing themes and art direction of exclusive product, as well as managing a team that covered sourcing, project management, design and marketing.

TOY DESIGN

I've created and designed toys for companies like Mattel, Funrise, and Loot Crate. From collectible figures like an Astro Boy light up figure, to My Little Pony floppy plush, I have experience creating both hardlines and softlines. I understand the toy production process from beginning to end, and I work hard to ensure that the final produced product is as close to the original concept as much as possible.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Next to toy design, I also design other products. Everything from desk accessories to apparel.

ILLUSTRATIONS

Illustrating is one of my passions, and I do it as much as possible. I love creating vivid characters and utilizing lots of bold colors. I do both digital painting style illustration as well as vector illustration. I work primarily in Photoshop and Illustrator.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

I have done work as a graphic designer primarily as a UI artist on mobile and Facebook games (so you will see many examples of UI here). But I also design logos and have done a lot of those for comic books and games, and I have also done graphic design for product (please see the product design area), and for packaging.

3D WORK

3D sculpting is my newest passion and I'm learning the components of creating different sculpts for different purposes. Creating cleaner meshes, reducing poly count, my main purposes are to try to create base sculpts for toy production and potentially sculpts for in-game usage or illustration.

CUTEBOT WORLD

Cutebot World is a new world and story that revolves around cute but troublemaking robots as they entertain themselves in their own world. This is a brand building experiment, and my hope is that it will gain life on its own and be its own little beast. Clicking the button below will take you to a separate website.
