Children's Book Template

I illustrated and co-wrote a children's book with Michael Schmid. It received an Apple featuring for "Best New Reads for Children 5 and Under" and we're pursuing a print run now!

Prototype: Project Macau


I worked with designers and engineers to create an accurate 'mock' gameplay video for what they wanted and what was actually possible. I painted three versions of the UI to give to marketing for A/B testing to see if a style performed better than another.

Loot and Legends Asset Breakdowns


 

  


 
 
    
 



I animated a video prototyping what scrolling along the world map would feel like. The second half of the video is showing what unlocking a new part of the map could look like.

Making mockup videos like this it helped me iterate before affecting others. It also presented an opportunity for designers and engineers to give input at a flexible point. It allowed for major design changes and iteration to take place before creating time consuming and expensive engineering tasks.

I worked with designers and engineers to create this gameplay accurate mockup animation. This saved engineering time and made tasks much clearer.

Project Hamburg






This video showed what gameplay could look like for a prototype we were working on. I was art lead on the project and wanted to visually show that we could skin the game quickly for anything from fantasy to military. I art directed the UI and final character renderings. I created all the animation, background art, FX, and buildings. Tim Gillette and Joe Perron created the UI for this video.

Drew my teammates!


My team is developing a new game! It made me think that we sort of live together during production, so I drew us hanging out like we were in The Sims.

Smash Squad Character Art





Congrats to the team, Smash Squad was a blast to work on. Be sure to give it a try for free on the iOS store! (Android version coming soon)
