I've had the privilege of designing corporate mascots and cartoon characters for some
great companies and organizations, as well as for animated television shows and commercials.
I have also enjoyed designing TV & movie character-based "Happy Meal" toys for McDonalds and Taco Bell.
I would be honored to create something special for you.
