Hello! I'm Blake; and, before we go any further, I'd like to let you know more about me! I am a born-and-raised Nebraskan who has always had an eye for the unusual. I am a huge people person and love exploring my ever growing horizons. In my down time, I enjoy strumming my guitar, skateboarding, painting, reading, and writing.
Print is everywhere – newspapers, magazines, outdoor billboards-it touches you on a deeper level, often unconsciously. Digital is very different. People try to work out the differences between print and digital. Which one is better or more effective? Why bother? The reality is that each one is very effective if employed in an intelligent and thought- provoking way ultimately engaging with the reader.
At the risk of sounding hackneyed, I like helping people. I get a glow of satisfaction from completing a job for someone, whether it’s writing copy for a web site or a one-page flyer that they weren’t able to do themselves. Often, it’s not even the paid jobs; it can be just chatting to someone about their advertising options or referring them to helpful information and resources.
There are no expectations of how my work should look. Popular illustrators' styles vary so much they're fun to look at, and the ones the farthest from reality are the most visually appealing. I love illustration because you can be free to do what you want, and people don't judge; they just understand that's the way you draw..
