Concept Development

I have been a free­lance design­er and illus­tra­tor in Collectibles/Licensing for over 35 years. I have spe­cial­ized in con­cept devel­op­ment for a vari­ety of com­pa­nies, some list­ed below. I design fig­urines, inspi­ra­tional art, orna­ments and func­tion­al décor and din­ner­ware col­lec­tions. I work with cre­ative direc­tors and prod­uct man­agers devel­op­ing con­cepts, sketch­es and final art- includ­ing back views and side views when request­ed. I also cri­tique ven­dor sam­ples. I license designed prod­ucts under my own name for fees and roy­al­ties. I do art/designs for estab­lished movie char­ac­ter licens­ing col­lectibles for movie and ani­ma­tion stu­dios.
