“All children draw. I just never stopped.” —Al Hirschfeld
When I was a teenager a New York illustrator moved to our sleepy Minnesota town. My art teacher set up a tour of his home studio. For the first time I realized it was possible to make a living drawing pictures from home. I was hooked.
I started doing some freelance work while I was still in college and I’ve been self-employed ever since. I’ve worked hard to build a reputation for being professional, reliable, and easy to work with.
I’ve worked on hundreds of client projects. I’ve helped design toys for Disney, Hasbro, and Chick-Fil-A; illustrated packaging for Cocoa Puffs, Gogurt, Crayola, Hasbro, and Orville Redenbacher; illustrated stories for Scholastic and Highlights! magazine; created advertising comps for Coca-Cola, Target, and Best Buy; and designed characters for VeggieTales.
In between client projects I draw webcomics. My comics have been featured on the front pages of Reddit, Imgur, and Bored Panda.
In 2006 I illustrated a cartoon Gospel tract for the ministry of Living Waters. Millions of copies have been printed in over fifty languages.
I’m married to an amazing wife and have three lovely daughters. We live outside of Minneapolis where the cold weather gives us an excuse to drink hot chocolate practically year-round.
