My best skill is illustration, followed by logo design.
I am highly skilled in Mischief, Adobe Photoshop, -Illustrator and -InDesign.
I am also skilled in video editing. I can operate both video camera and JIB (crane) camera.
I know the basics of 3D modelling in 3D Max Studio and Maya.
I have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS (and still learning).
Most of my working experience is in the field of printing, so I know the digital printing side quite well; and I know the difference between good- and bad quality printing since I’ve worked with the machines themselves, set up the artwork and had them printed. I’m not easily fooled when it comes to printing. (:
I pay good attention to the quality of printing. The same goes for digital images.
I am an illustrator servicing the market with all formats of illustration including character design, comic and cartoon creation, caricatures and storyboarding. A majority of my work is creating live concept drawing for corporates and live caricatures for events, both corporate and private.
My main focus and strength is live drawing for corporate presentations and in-house training sessions which has become very popular and creates a more powerful and memorable message compared to the traditional slideshow.
Live caricature illustration for corporates and private functions is also one of my services that are high in demand.
Character design and development is often extended toward animation, comic and cartoon strip creation. 3D illustration & animation, storyboarding and caricature design add to my wide range of abilities.

A have a passion for illustration and strong work ethic which reinforce me as a competitive force in my field.
