Design

For close to 20 years, I worked as a graphic designer and web designer... quite incidentally, really.

I graduated from from university in California in 1996, just the right time and the right place to embrace the then-new media of web design. At the time, it was fairly standard practice to be involved in the entirety of projects, from design to coding. Plus, with my degree in graphic design, I also did print design and branding, and some illustration services too. I really was a one-stop shop, one-woman-band.

I don't actively seek this sort of work anymore, although I do still like to show it... if anything, to remind myself what I've been doing the last 20 years!

While my focus has shifted from design to comic art in recent years, I am still available as a freelancer for commercial illustration. If you are seeking an illustrator, please do get in touch as I will be happy to discuss your project with you and prepare you a quote.
