Experience

  • Poster Designer, Illustrator, Animator at Jolly Dreams
    Austin, United States of America
    December 2015 - Present

    I was originally hired by the director of the film to design a concept poster for a film that Jolly Dreams productions was starting pre-production with. I worked with the director on the concept for the poster and did a rough version of the poster between December 2015 and March of 2016. Production issues stopped my work on the poster for a while but I was on retainer for when things were cleared. Once these issues were handled I was brought back to finalize the poster before the crowdfunding could begin.

    June of 2017 I was contacted by Jolly Dreams again, this time to storyboard, illustrate, and animate a motion comic teaser for the film.

    Currently the contract to begin this work is pending.

  • Illustration/Marketing at Inspire Pro Wrestling
    Austin, United States of America
    January 2017 - Present

    I am doing all key art for Inspire Pro Wrestling's upcoming sporting events starting with the first show I fully Illustrated back in January.

    I oversee the visual campaign from concept, logo design, and do all of the illustrated portrait work of each wrestler on every poster. I also provide key art and ensure its compliance with contemporary printing needs for Newspaper, Printed Posters for display locally, and to their Videographer and Editor for use on their DVD releases.

  • Poster Artist at Near the Ground Studios
    Austin, United States of America
    October 2016 - December 2016

    I was hired to design two distinct posters for the independent film "Seven Hill City" from director Brandon Stroud. We worked together on concept for the posters based off of key scenes in the script that he wanted to portray to the audience without giving away the story.

    I then spent time going through every production still to find the right angles and poses from the lead actors and begun putting together comprehensives and sending them direct to the director. Once we came upon two ideas that fully worked for him I set into doing the paintings themselves. Each painting started as a pencil sketch and then was painted digitally in Photoshop.

    Currently the movie has been completed and is in the festival circuit with my posters serving as all key art for the marketing campaign for the film.
