Star Wars Christmas 1979

Star Wars Christmas 1979

I’m a Creative

…and illustrator, musician, web monkey, photographer, painter, entrepreneur, freelancer and more. I’m a Creative.

I majored in Graphic Design with a minor in business at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. After a small internship with Western Publishing, creators of Golden Books, I moved onto Karen Johnson Productions, a local animation studio. There I was introduced to Disney, video game design and classic animation. Throughout my career I've adapted to the changing work landscape. Moving on from the world of pixels I delved into print then began designing for t-shirt brands. Switched gears and moved onto Harley-Davidson to work under Willie G. Davidson in their Styling department. This ultimately led to work with Polaris and most recently Disney/Lucasfilm on my dream job Star Wars books for DK Publishing.

In 2014 I started my first small business, Blue deVille Photography. Having always carried a camera with me since I was a kid it was time to explore this more.

In my spare time I keep up my art skills through online studies, staying up to date with my favorite artists, oil painting studies, and yes, build models...the old school glue and paint kind. Love motorcycling, traveling with my family and spending time with my dog Starbuck.
