I have always considered myself an artist first and foremost. From a young age I showed a lot of aptitude for drawing with a pencil which I still enjoy doing to this day. I trained at college to be an illustrator. Near the end of college I began apprenticing as a tattoist and did several pieces on friends and customers.
Unfortunately real life got in the way (as it always does) and I had to move on from tattooing. Although I have never been able to get a full time job illustrating I have managed to do some book covers and also some work on board games.
I still produce work when I can, either commissions or for personal pleasure. I hope to share some of my Works-in-Progress (WIPs) on this site. For my full portfolio, please visit my Deviant Art page at http://jobwell.deviantart.com/.
