Biography

Experienced digital artist, currently located in Nottingham, UK.

After working as a 3D Character Artist for a few years, I've decided to pursue my ultimate passion in 2D art and illustration. For years I've been doing private commissions, as well as working in the mobile games industry. This helped me develop a wide range of styles an techniques ranging from cartoons to realism.
Over the years I worked in Photoshop, Flash and Illustrator, in addition to 3D software like 3DsMax, Maya and Zbrush.

In my free time I work on my webcomic, Drugs & Wires, and frequently table at comic conventions.

Originally from Latvia, I speak English, Russian and Latvian.
