New York Times bestsellers, illustrated children's books, printed stage background pieces, and graphic design.

I do the front end concept work for laser tag murals, maze wall panel designs, sign designs, prop designs, and paint renderings for the paint department. I also do animation for the company. In addition, I work as an auxiliary painter painting props, maze walls, escape room props and laser tag perimeter walls.
