A JACK OF TRADES

I'm Jay, an art director who specializes in Design. I consider myself a “jack of trades” and multi-hyphenate artist who also has skills in Animation, Photography, Illustration, and Cinematography.
____

For Design, I focus on print and publication, consisting of promotional, apparel, and music cover design.
For Animation & Illustration, I center my attention on motion graphics, character design, and conceptual art.
For Photography, I find portraiture, fashion, and editorial photography to represent my style, using both digital and analog photography.

I don’t plan on staying in one lane when it comes to my creative career.
