T22 Function: 3D Characters
Day job: Associate Course Director at Full Sail University
Having been an active illustrator for a while I spend the majority of my exploration in constructing partial narratives in 3D/2D Illustration. Having done work for the game industry in the past I now teach Character design and 3d modeling at Full Sail University, as well as freelance Character work for various remote contractors. Art has always been a combination of study exploration and play for me. I would say my reasons for focusing on character design or one particular reason would be the fact that it has allowed for me to constantly reinvent various aspects of my own persona while creating strings of fantasy narrative with which to house these manifestations.
