His works have been in several magazines and books, exhibited nationally and internationally, in London, Berlin, Boston, Beijing, Tokyo, Kyoto, Manila, Melbourne and several other cities.
“I try to be as involved as I can in the design community too, you meet a lot of nice people and contacts this way. People respect you for your skill and your hard work, and this will lead to good things. Just keep doing great work and promote the hell out of it… promoting is just as important as doing. What’s the point of doing great work if no one sees it…”
“I try to implement as much detail and make my illustration as fun and interesting as possible, it’s character driven, and often involves large, isometric detailed landscapes and scenery.”
