I am available currently for most any design/art works and it likely depends on the job, so I more likely free to focus on per job. I sell my prior artwork/design and art to clients worldwide also.
With certain big commissions travelled to the client, be it individual or a corporation. My artwork is versatile, as in styles that suit the client. I have worked from on my own, to two prior ad agencies, and starting off as a television art director, where much graphic design was needed each day, as well as photography directing, guitar, as specializing in slide guitar for film and video bits or whole instrumentals of new compositions or versions of blues to jazz tunes. My illustration/painting/drawings started in traditional then on to computer technologies used.
