I am an electronics engineer by qualification and a writer by passion and profession. Thanks to Google search and calm, serene, and abandoned libraries, I consider myself a one-man army of researchers and philosophers.

I’ve been a busy working artist for over a decade, with dozens of books and online tutorial projects successfully completed. Writers and traditional publishers alike have always praised the work I’ve turned in to them. Now I’m offering my services to Upwork clients around the world.

I offer creative, imaginative artwork for virtually all individual and business design purposes. Need a book illustrated to complement your words? I’ve drawn dozens. Want hand-drawn, frame-by-frame flash animation done? Let me do that for you!
