I grew up before there was such a thing as the personal computer, cut my teeth with real drawing materials, and learned to paint on canvas with gooey paint and foul-smelling solvents. What is the greatest smell on the planet? If you answered "paper", you are my kind of client.
Fortunately, my love for drawing isn't stuck in an electric pencil sharpener. I've been creating breath-taking visuals using the latest in computer graphics software and equipment since Adobe Illustrator v1.
CHEF D'INSANE DETAIL
I spent two decades working as an award-winning web designer (16toads) before embarking on my latest adventure. I am the founder and chief (only) penciler behind OddBurton and I am quite content having eschewed riches in lieu of following my passions. I'm easy-going when not serious, laugh frequently, and have been told that I pronounce the word "bag" funny. I wield an HB pencil like a pencil, make a damn tasty dill pickle, and have been called "the most all-around talented guy [I've ever met]" by an inebriated friend … I’m constantly striving to improve my weaknesses as an artist.
