He practiced illustration work in his spare time, in 1996 he took the plunge and started freelance in illustration. In 2001, he started working with technology and began executing his artwork using a Wacom tablet and Corel Painter. Since then he has reinvented his style about 5 or 6 times. It was in 2009 that he decided to create a sustainable style with a little more longevity.
