How do you put in your colors? Photoshop?

Awesome!

Jeff

Great work here! But I've got a question. You said the images were made during trips and such, but do you make them on location or do you make them afterwards from your memory or a photograph?

I tend to take photographs as reference and work from them, sometimes do a little sketch or two also.

Hey. I recently completed a spot for Future Snowboarding Magazine, i delivered the job, they where happy, all was good so i waited to get paid. I waited over a month. Finally i start to get a bit curious so i went on the site and.....the magazine has shut down. I lost a commision and money, i wasnt even that bothered about the money, i was really looking forward to seeing my piece in print. It was especially annoying since im only just starting out. Has that ever happened to anyone on here? oh well. Here is a new image.

You have a very interesting style. It reminds me of the illustrations I see in magazines like Esquire, so there is most certainly a market and appreciation for your style of work. The gas pump and pool hall ones are my favorites.

I wish you the best of luck and feel that you will go far with your illustrations.
