I am currently employed with Thor Media LLC . But since it is a small company, they are always looking for new clients. This allows me to still do allot of work, as if I was freelance. So, don't be afraid to approach with any work that I or Thor Media would be interested in.

I reached one of my 2016 goals! Get my artwork published in a third party publication of some sort. That publication is RETROKOMP, a quarterly printed retro gaming/computing magazine out of Poland. A good fellow named Piotr contacted me and requested to use a piece from my 2016 Inktober Atari Propaganda collection for the cover ... Read More
Three years of learning. Three years of programming. Three years of drawing. And it all should have taken three weeks. Flappy McFur is finally in the hands of the masses, or at least the 80 or so individuals that were actually interested.

But I was able to squeeze in an hour here and there on this illustration for Flappy McFur, BitJag’s Atari Jaguar homebrew game.

Unfortunately, this includes the time that is spent putting together videos and posting on my blog. If you are consistent to my blog, or my YouTube Channel, ... Read More
My brother and I have been working hard on the Atari Jaguar stuff, and new ideas, art, writting, and code, trickles into each and every project everyday. Flappy Mcfur is the first fruits of our efforts. Obviously a Flappy Bird clone for the Atari Jaguar, this program really was just a training ground for me ... Read More
