I've been doing pixel art since 1990-ish and am seeking to ply my pixel trade with work.

Have managed art departments, done a lot of design (written, game concept, layout and that sort in addition to drawn), met crazy deadlines, pulled 3 day sleepless crunchers and even done some newer console stuff. I designed Steel Harbinger on PS1 and Star Trek 25th Ann. on Gameboy (B&W), did most art for both those. Gods, I even worked on EGA games for Britannica. I'm mainly textures and illustration/UI/pixel 2D but have worked on Maya, 3D Studio, ZBrush, done low poly models, vertex lighting and more. I use Photoshop, Painter, Cosmigo ProMotion, Deluxe Paint, Illustrator and various other tools, apps, proprietary and not. I've used a lot of import/tile/sprite apps for consoles and PC, as well. Very familiar with tiles, transparency bits, palettes and am really pretty insane at getting the most out of constrained limited bit depth and resolution, getting stuff that nails that 'sweet retro' look. Available now, can travel some in CA if required. In the last few years I've been keeping busy doing other work, a bit of texture mapping and illustration for pen and paper RPGs but still like to keep up on pixel pushing! XD If you need someone who's been around and was working as art lead and manager back in the actual days of Genesis, SNES and Gameboy, hit me up. I'm down for a grueling long project in need of fast skilled work or something just starting up needing some assets to plug in.

I'm posting a lot of 'old' samples here - will be adding newer stuff in the next day or two. If you have questions or would like to see some quick examples of a particular type of asset you need, I'd be happy to send something along. Please RSVP with some info on your project and how the timeline is looking and we'll figure out milestones.

WIP for side space shooter project I'm collaborating on for Switch. Sort of a 90's 'U.N. Squadron' (Area-88) style character selection screen graphic!
