About me

I am a black illustrator hailing from Kansas City Missouri, USA. I am a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. I studied illustration and graphic design.

Formally the lead Art Director of the telecom company, Sprint. I moved to Japan in pursuit of illustrative work, especially character design. I hope to bring my unique style and experience to the scene in Japan, make connections and ultimately make amazing work with creative and like-minded people.

I love working with minimal color and graphic shapes in character work. I have done a lot of work with musicians and I'm also interested in working in fashion design.

I hope to network and make amazing stuff together. Please reach out if you like what you see! I'm studying Japanese right now pretty seriously, though I'm still around N5.

My Creations

  1. Commissioned to design a limited edition logo in parallel with a small gallery opening at a local Kanazawa bar.
    Was asked to design something representative of my body of work while also infusing some element of the venue's aesthetic.

    I like to play with short animation loops or animatics. I also like to attempt singing from time to time. (Judge not the quality of my microphone~)
