The artwork found at TJR Cool Graphics and my passion for creating such lifelike images was first inspired in my childhood. My parents had a full set of that classic collection, World Book Encyclopedia, that was practically a staple in my youth! For me, these books were a treasure trove of brightly colored images! I spent hours and hours studying the various creatures and other creations on those pages. Horses and dogs and cats, bird, bird eggs, gem stones, agates, and all of those fascinating landscapes! But, by far, my favorite sections were the ones in the back of a couple volumes. I remember both the "human" and "horse" sections had a special series of pages that showed the bones and muscles. What made them so cool was the fact that a couple of pages were transparent overlays showing how the muscles, organs, and veins sat on the skeleton. I was immediately hooked on how life on Earth is structured and knit together! From then on, it became an unwavering drive to create creatures, including ones from fantasy, with as much realism as possible!
Here, at TJR Cool Graphics, I have ideas for creating your own products to sell along with tips for designing fun crafts at home.
My realistic clip art designs are perfect for any number of projects. Use them on t shirts and mugs, thermoses, bags, cell phone covers, and so much more! These cool graphics have countless applications!
I made a career for myself working for Arctic Circle Enterprises (ACE) in Anchorage, Alaska. I developed my skills in creating cool graphics and learned valuable details about setting up designs for production.
In addition, I was occasionally visited by a moose at my window.
At ACE, I was able to gain tremendous experience with creating and setting up screen print illustrations for use on commercial products. I also developed my abilities in creating graphic designs for use on a variety of gift products including: magnets, drinkware, garments, bags, key chains, and much more! I've even designed 3D illustrations of items later created into sculptures and even a 15 foot tall statue!
Incorporating all of my experience, I've launched TJR Cool Graphics as the ideal location for professional freelance artwork.
I can create nearly any graphic design project. My greatest skills are with illustration and I love any opportunity to create beautiful and dynamic designs. I have illustrated everything from charming and whimsical characters in children's books to zombie designs for James Roday. My clients span America from coast to coast.
I have created hundreds of different designs for many different clients. Everything from logo work to a custom painted box intended to hold an urn.
The majority of my cool graphic design work is digital. I have spent decades developing my skill with illustration software. Most of my work is created with the Abobe products Photoshop and Illustrator.
