Here you can see some examples of my work with a short description of the project.

For this photo I removed several unwanted elements, removed scratches, color corrected, brightened, and cropped, resized and added a nice blue sky to fill in the empty space before printing a physical copy.

I designed the lettering and stern graphic for this Iron Maiden themed Lobster boat from Vinalhaven, ME. I am currently working on the follow up for the owners new boat, which will launch this spring.

This Mass Effect Trilogy poster was featured by the developers, Bioware, as well as numerous video game publications. It has been downloaded over 100,000 times and is even being counterfeited by several Chinese poster companies on eBay.

Model Cleanup

This model asked to have the wrinkles in her bathing suit removed and touch up some skin blemishes on her thigh, lastly I raised her top.

Senior Photo Cleanup

For this senior photo I did some color correcting, removed skin blemishes, reduced wrinkles and eye bags, brightened teeth and pumped up the colors a bit to make the final version “pop" and not feel washed out. The goal is to keep it natural looking and not be over worked and fake.

Goats in the Garden Soap

Goats in the Garden Soaps came to me unsatisfied with the work another designer had done for them. I took this example pictured above and produced a product they were thrilled with. Note: The white area is left blank for the printers to add additional text.

Logos and Business Cards

These are 2 examples of business cards I have done.  Simple or complex, both can be designed effectively. Some contact info has been blurred on purpose.
