"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up"
Hello, and thanks for spending some time checking out my stuff. "Spade" is an art moniker that I picked up growing up and is easier for people to remember than my real last name. Thus the URL here. I understand it is a bit confusing.
I am a digital and traditional artist living in Denver, CO where I create art in various ways. I grew up in the burbs in-between Baltimore and Annapolis, spent some time living in Glenwood Springs Colorado and then attended the Art Institute in Philadelphia where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Computer Animation and I was able to win the Outstanding Achievement Award for my graduating class. I spent some time at MTV animations in New York where I worked on shows like Daria and Spygroove. I then moved onto doing graphic design for a Federal Government contractor in Virginia where I spent about 7 years and assisted in winning a number of multimillion dollar proposals. I was then offered a senior Designer/Illustrator role for Primal Wear which is the #1 Custom Cycling Jersey company in the United States here in Denver where I have been living ever since. I enjoy working with a wide variety of mediums such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Blender, Zbrush, 3d Printers, acrylic and Spray paints and of course the trusted mechanical pencil and sketchbook.
