I have a strong background in commercial art and illustration and tend to use the techniques and workflows of that arena in my images. Although sometimes spontaneous, I usually plan out my composite images and often use sketches, notes and quick digital layouts to help keep my ideas on track. I use a combination of Photoshop and Painter and often work back and forth between the 2 programs to create my final image. My main concentration is to create what I call "custom image design" for my clients.
I also do photoshop and painter work for hire and because of repeated requests have started to teach my digital techniques through private and small group sessions.
I am also excited about my new website, www.checkartstudio.com which is dedicated to my newest work.
