jaime3Hi, I’m a book professional-slash-dabbler-in-everything-else in New York City. Thanks for visiting my portfolio. The creations and projects here were created and are copyrighted by me. You’ll find short stories and novels, podcasts and videos, drawings and animation, and, yes, even papier-mâché. On the “Blog” tab, you’ll find the miscellaneous and works in progress (WIP). If you like something I’ve made, why not leave a comment?

Some things about me: I’m about 30-years-old and am from Wisconsin. I like scary stories and good art. I drink Irish breakfast and chai lattes. My favorite color is orange, and not in a passive, adult way. I play the guitar. I collect hats. I wish I had a pet ibex.

Autographed drawing

So this happened. The Emmys had a fan art contest, and they picked out one piece of art for James Corden to autograph at the Emmys. They picked mine.

Flatter Wacom drawings

March 29, 2016

These two are drawn with the Wacom Pad (lined in ArtRange Lite and colored in Photoshop), but this time I tried a flatter color method. I gave Billy Connolly a little bit of shadow for likeness reasons. Julia Davis didn’t really need it. I have tickets to see Billy Connolly in April. I did the Julia Davis one for my reviews of JAM and Nighty Night.
