My primary field so far has been layout and design for books and artwork for bands,
but I'm available for commissioned work in most illustration and design related
areas including graphic design, image editing & retouching, layout, typesetting,
web design, logo creation, multimedia presentations and probably everything inbetween.
I do not aim to pursue a specific style for each and every client, but rather to adopt
the aesthetics to the requirements of each project. This is not to say that my work lacks
identity, but rather that I am diverse and versitile enough to treat every project as a
unique entity and put forward the client's own character.
If enquiring regarding commissions and availability, please include as much information
as possible on your project including details on budget and timeframe.
Bands and record labels: If contacting me regarding cover artwork, please include a link
to the official webpage (if there is one, obviously) of the band in question.
I have an eclectic approach to my work and like to incorporate pencil drawings, photography
and scanned textures and objects to create a coherent entity. I usually start out with pencil
and paper, scan the drawings, and then proceed to add and remove different elements intuitively.
What I like about the digital canvas is the ability to quickly toy around with different
compositions and colour schemes and being able to revert to earlier steps of an image to
follow-up a different thread and spin them further.It's important, however, to remember
that the computer is but another asset in the toolbox, and at the end of the day, the
traditional artist skills like an eye for composition, color and contrast are the factors that matter.

While its flattering that some people for whatever reason want to use my images on their
websites, I want to decide myself exactly how, when and in what context my work is displayed.
Given the "free" nature of the Internet, its very easy for people to download images that they
like and publish them on their own pages, sometimes without giving proper credit to the artist.
However, unauthorized use undermines the value and impact of the artwork, and the creator of the
image is usually not too happy to see his work scattered around the net, sometimes disproportionally
resized and compressed or otherwise presented in an inferior format.
So, even if you have the best of intentions, please contact me if you are interested
in using any of the images here.
