As a freelance illustrator I have worked for corporate (Target, General Mills, etc.), public (MN Department of Public Safety), and private (Round Table Companies, Inverse Press, etc.) clients, rendering digital illustrations in the form of storyboards, comics, concept art, and graphics for print, websites, and television.  I launched a weekly webcomic in 2010 and have not missed an update in over six years.
