About Me

Nice.

You found my portfolio. Way to go. I think you’re a winner. If you’re not already sitting, take a seat and look around. If you’re on your mobile device of choice, wait until you’re out of the crosswalk.

I’m an illustrator and designer in Little Rock, Arkansas with my wife, 4 year old twin boys, another kiddo on the way, two dogs and two cats. (Speaking of animals, be sure to drop by my blog, Doodle Britches, which has little to do with animals.) I don’t do much web design. I mean I have, and I can. But I’ll tell you, I’m just not that much into it. The web doesn’t smell like anything I want to remember. Print does, so I like to focus on that.

Lastly, consider a good laugh from my “friend” Terry Cloff, the design writer and internet wonder on Facebook and Twitter.
